Don't be fooled by his composed demeanor--Asmodai is a vicious villain who has long abandoned mercy and compassion. Subterfuge and espionage are his weapons of choice, but when forced into direct combat, he commands powerful miasmas drawn forth from the earth that rots whatever he treads.

He reveals he threatened King Freyr to give up his sight and memory in exchange for the life of his wife and son. Freyr tries to stop Asmodai from getting hold of the Crystal, but is defeated.

Asmodai is an alternate spelling of Asmodeus. Asmodeus is a king of demons known from the deutero-canonical Book of Tobit, in which he is the primary antagonist. The demon is also mentioned in some Talmudic legends. He was supposed by some Renaissance Christians to be the King of the Nine Hells. Asmodeus is referred to as one of the seven princes of Hell, and in Binsfeld's classification of demons, each prince represents one of the seven deadly sins. Asmodeus is the demon of lust.
