(lit. pain of loss) The Sins are powerful curses in human form that feed off of and are empowered by negative emotions such as pain and sadness. These emotions also attract them. They were recently created by the Black God. He had wanted to use them as soldiers, but they overpowered and forced him to free them. Now they operate as a loosely organized group whose unspoken leader is Pride, the most powerful Sin.
Almost as soon as they were released, the Sins sowed destruction in any way they could. This caused the Cross to focus their efforts on finding and killing the Sins. However, they soon found that it was difficult to get rid of them. All the Sins are immortal and will disappear upon death, regenerating a week after they are killed. However, they will be condemned to Alptraum for the week they are dead. The Sins can die permanently, but only by Pride's hand. She can also create new Sins or turn people into them if she finds someone who has suitable traits to become one. This bit of info is only known among the Sins.
Other than the Deadly Sins, there exist other Sins called Branches. They aren't as powerful as the Deadly Sins, but they have their own unique abilities. They represent more minor sins such as Deceit and Neglect and they run wild just as the other Sins do.
Poena Damni's only directive is to destroy and indulge. Since the Cross has impeded this directive repeatedly, the Sins hate members of that faction especially and seem to target them more than anyone else.
HQ location: the "Tower of Babel" in Alptraum
The Deadly Sins - The threat Crux Fidelis is most focused on would be the Seven Deadly Sins of Poena Damni. Each one of them represents a specific cardinal sin, and they lead the branches in their goal to destroy the world any way they can. These sins are far more powerful than their Branch counterparts, and display power that is on the same level as the Seven Commanders. The most dangerous of these is the acting leader, Pride, who is rumored to rival the Pontifex in terms of ability.
Goals & Duties: - Like any other sin, the Seven Deadly Sins have one overall purpose, and that is to spread chaos across all of Sium. The Deadly Sins are even more dangerous in their disruptive abilities and destructive behaviors. Lead by Pride, their goal is to demolish the lives of those in Sium as quickly as possible and become even stronger from the sin that follows. At times they will lead branches into large battles to devastate regions of Sium.
Demons of Babylon - Demons that were defeated and subjugated by Lucifer. After coming under her control, she bestowed upon them the power to corrupt. This allows them to turn other entities into demons that align with the Sin they serve under. As demons, they can naturally fight, but not all of them are required to. Some can take more insidious or less direct methods to corrupt others, giving them the potential to avoid combat entirely.
Goals & Duties: - Their duties are quite simple - corrupt. From humans, to animals to anything with 'life'. Their methods are their own and can range from violent to passive - the only thing that matters is that they pursue their objective to the best of their abilities.
Servants - Some Sins may have partners that they work with that are not transformed into Branches by Pride. These beings are bound to a Sin in some way, and thus give aid to Poena Damni.
