Even in Sheol, there must be a place that is hotter than anywhere else. Most assume that this place would be Belial's throne room: a natural assumption, but quite wrong. After all, the Prince of Infernal Fire must entertain others from time to time, and his peers complain so when their envoys spontaneously combust before they can quite finish delivering the messages entrusted to them. No, the throne room of Belial is merely incandescently hot.

The (comparatively) small room adjoining it, on the other hand, is transcendently so. This is appropriate, as this where the real work of the Principality gets done. Indeed, it can be said that the Word of Infernal Fire is centered in that place, eternally providing the source of the flames that consume all of Sheol. It is, without a doubt, the hottest place in Hell.

It is Hamon's natural environment.

There is no mystery or ineffability about Hamon and her origins: Belial has always been quite forthright about the fact that the Calabite is comprised in equal measure from his own personal Forces... and those ripped or tricked from Gabriel over the last twenty thousand years. Anyone with eyes to see (assuming, of course, that one had eyes to see after a visit to Hamon's lair) would not question this: the traces of both of her 'parents' are clear to see in every line of her. It is also clear that the constant exposure to the Heart of Infernal Fire has permanently affected Hamon. The Baroness is only able to survive in Sheol - but is miserable outside of the Fortress of Flame (or utter depths of the Lake of Fire) and only really able to relax in her quarters.

Nevertheless, Hamon is a vital part of Belial's organization: she can often be seen walking about, keeping track of Belial's numerous Servitors and making sure that their activities burn ever hotter. Like her father, she is destructive... but unlike her 'father' the Baroness is capable of deliberation, foresight and creativity. In many ways, she administers Sheol for him, making sure that he can continue to freely set the three planes ablaze at whim. Most of Hell appreciates the joke that Hamon is able to draw upon those things more associated with her 'mother' - creativity, inspiration, transformation - but only to use them to further the causes of her father. Heaven does not approve of the joke nearly as much, but Gabriel herself has personally decreed that Hamon be not touched.

If the Archangel of Divine Fire hopes to somehow reconcile herself with the daughter she never bore nor knew nor wanted, she may be doomed to disappointment. Hamon is fiercely devoted to the cause of Hell: more accurately, she is devoted to the cause of her father. It is rare to find a being in Hell that Truly loves another, but Hamon loves her father. For him, she will keep his house and Principality in order. For him, she will shiver in the lesser colds while on his service. For him, she would lay down her life at his command or wish.

However, despite his reliance upon her diligence, advice and utter loyalty, Belial does not love his daughter. Will not love his daughter. Cannot love his daughter. Must not love his daughter.

His brand of Fire can only love the fuel.
