Kingdom Death Lore The Holy Lands

1st Lion Knight

The first Lion Knight was a failure. Its vision permanently fixed a few moments into the future, it was driven mad living outside of time and deemed too unstable to lead the Golden Entity’s armies. Now imprisoned deep within the Golden Labyrinth, the first Lion Knight stews in its derangement, the heady stench attracting Wailing Smoke from all corners of the abyss. The first Lion Knight spends its lonely days in lively conversation with them.

2nd Lion Knight

Three brother generals command the vast armies of the Golden Entities domain. Each imbued with a different temperament and a strong will of their own. The middle brother is the most attached to the human industry and artistry. He cultivates a courtly civilized appearance and graceful swordsmanship, surrounding himself with human thralls allowing them to enjoy their short tragic existence in his awesome presence.

The Lion Knight is the most human of the Golden Entities creations and is forever obsessed with truly understanding man.

Ash, Ryan, and Sam are scholars raised and educated from the Lion Knight's private museums. They share a life of luxury and discovery, often traveling with the Lion Knight on grand art collecting expeditions. Their unique life makes them some of the most knowledgeable women in all of Kingdom Death. Granting them domain over even some White Speaker stories, including the secrets of ageing, giving them eternally healthy and youthful bodies.


The apotheosis of the Entity's bottomless narcissism, the Chosen are created in the Entity's self-image. Its glory made flesh. Imbued with savage beauty matched by their intense vanity. The grinding machinery of the Holy Lands freezes wherever they pass. Through their eyes the Entity casts its self-loving gaze upon the vastness of its creation.

Although they walk the land unchallenged their impetuous rage leave swaths of smoldering ruin in their wake.

Forge God

The Forge God minds the furnaces of the Holy Lands, a massive creature whose very pores produce the holy steel that the edifices of the Holy Lands are made of. He is consumed by the desire for perfection in his works, the Mothers, Grandmothers and White Knights are his personal masterworks.

Forge Priest

The master of the forge of the Holy Lands.

Grand Mother

Few chosen victims survive the treatment of raw god metal that prepares a womb to withstand and nurture the ghastly cocktail that gives rise to the monsters of the Holy Lands. The truly holy mothers are beatified as Grand Mothers, transformed into creatures embodying the maternal life-giving ideal of the Entity. These special few give birth to the Entity's most precious children, the massive winged Blessed Ones. The Grand Mother's womb is braced heavy ornate gut plates. Within, a hostile furnace of creation churns. She has a mouthed cord growing from her belly that devours male organs of her mates to better the chances of divine conception.

The Grand Mother is a rare, horrifying foe, possessing a master the Other and protected by the watchful eye of the Entity itself.


Wet Nurse

The Wet Nurse is a single minded monster that serves the Entity of the Holy Lands. Its only purpose is to nourish the creatures born in the Holy Lands with the molten milk it produces. This is the nutrition that carries within it the imperatives and instincts to serve the Entity of the Holy Lands. The monsters birthed by the Mothers and Grand Mothers of the Holy Lands are taken by the Wet Nurses who's milk is the very will of the Entity. Humans taken from their mothers at birth are nursed by the Wet Nurses to create the mindless shambling masses of Holy Landers that live in the Entity's fiefdom.

White Knight

The glorious White Knights are the military might of the Holy Lands and enforcers of the Golden Entity's capricious whims. Their exquisitely crafted white and gold armor makes no sound as they march through the dark, narrow passages of the Holy City and beyond. What dwells inside the fully-enclosed armor is a mystery. Many speculate they are born from the furnace guts of the Mothers, unfeeling, loyal byproducts of human birth experimentation.

What dwells inside the exquisitely crafted armor is a mystery born in the furnace guts of the Mothers. A byproduct of generations of eugenic experimentation transforming the people of the Holy Lands in the service of the Golden Entity.

White Knight Heavy

The White Knight Heavy is the backbone of the military ranks, their enormous weapons bringing up the rear of the Holy Lands' brutal martial forces.

White Lion

Huge terrifying lions with a strange human curiosity and human hands. Their white fur shines with flecks of gold when the sunlight hits them directly, a strange contrast to their bloated and sad faces. They are a dominant predator in the holy lands and have become a symbol of inspiration and beauty for the entity that resides over all. Occasionally they are trained and kept as partners by Man-Hunters.
