Hash'ak'gik


Can someone in this board explain me who the hell is this Hash'ak'gik of whose identity was given to Turel in Defiance? I know he is the Dark Entity who appears as Kain defeats Mortanius in Blood Omen (it appears the fight against JENNOVA, who appears after Sephiroth is defeated as Final Fantasy VII). What I don't know is what role this character has in the Legacy of Kain series as a whole. Is he the god of the Hylden as The Elder God is the god of the Ancients?

Hash' is known to the humans at the Avernus as Unspoken. He was actually summoned by Hylden, so they could give order to their disciplies. Many Hylden posses Turel during his stay under Avernus, but he is never possesed by Hylden Lord, or as he is known in BO2 Sarafan Lord (he possesed Janos at the end of Defiance).

So, identity of Hash' is just used for easier adressing the disciplies, Hash' are actually Hylden, and they changed Mortanius into monster at the end of Blood Omen... He is no god, he is just presented as one to the Avernus fanatics...

I hope this will help you.

Actually, Arsenov, you are wrong.

The one who summoned Turel to the depths of Avernus was not the Hylden; it was actually Azimuth the Planar from the first game. She was the Guardian of Dimension and was able to summon all manner of creatures from different moments in time, and from other dimensions. Hence the name. When she was corrupted like the other guardians, she and one other guardian (name and which guardian escapes me at the moment) created Dark Eden. A place that is without a doubt a very weird place. As Kain himself comments on when he's closing in on Dark Eden and Avernus Cathedral. There she proceeded to summon the creatures so named; the red demons that you see in BO1 is actually the precursor to the Hylden race, although, of course, we did not know that at the time.

Anyway, once Turel -had- been summoned—Azimuth didn't actually have any control over her magic, due to the corruption, and creatures of other times and dimensions would appear at will, including Turel—he was possessed by the Hylden who took upon the mantle of Hash'ak'gik, an apparent god, and with it used it to control the disciples of Avernus to give him blood sacrifices - in the form of every first born. And if they did not obey, they would "know his wrath." Obviously that was just a ploy by the Hylden as they only needed the blood [of the first borns] to keep the host body [Turel] alive. He was also in a pit, unable to get out (while being blind as a bat [literally]). Whether he had been summoned there to begin with, or if he had been thrown in by the people of Avernus, I do not know, and there is no evidence for neither.

As for 'Unspoken', it was the name given to the Hylden by the Ancients -- now known as vampires -- after being victorious in the battle between the two races and after the Pillars had been erected, banishing the Hylden race from the land forever.
