Don’t leave your valuables lying around when he is near, be it gold or someone you hold dear. A silver tongue and slight of hand and he will rob you of all you hold dear. He cares not even if it is his brothers from whom he steals.
“Deep with each man’s heart lies a love of money.”
In the times before the fall, Mammon was a Seraph serving Marc. However, his heart was filled with desire for money and he joined Lucifer in the rebellion against God. When the War in Heaven was done, Mammon’s sins were far greater than any of the Fallen Ones.
The Prince of Greed, a Balseraph, is one of the most powerful of Hell’s Princes. He however has few enemies because favors from Mammon can be purchased if only given the right price. Likewise several Princes owe Mammon quite a bit and he is not above waiting a few millennia to call in those debts.

The Shedim of Mammon are the corrupters of young minds. They instill in these children that they must have the latest fashions, the newest video games, the coolest car. They may add their Celestial Forces when trying to inhabit a youth with the Discord of Greed.

Beserker armor – collected in ic during the rp at Greed Castle.
The Berserker Armor is a cursed suit of Armor which gives the wearer incredible strength, endurance and the ability not to feel pain. It does this by allowing its users to bypass the natural subconscious limits that prevent them from injuring themselves when using their full strength. It can temporarily fix injuries by binding bleeding wounds, reinforcing broken bones, and fixing dislocated joints, piercing the flesh from within the Armor with thin barbs and spikes if required.
The Skull Knight or another person succeeding his use of the Armor didn’t stop fighting until all of his blood was spilled and all of his bones were destroyed, pierced all over by the Armor before meeting their end.
It can also cause temporary insanity, causing the wearer to enter a “berserker rage”, it was also shown to increase fear as when Guts used it to fight the Makara and was a little in control he felt that the ocean waves are swallowing him and start to see monsters surrounding while it was merely the alligators who were no longer being controlled and Guts attacked them out of fear, and rendering them incapable of distinguishing friend from foe. In the long term, it can cause chronic mental deterioration (such as the strengthening of Guts’ Inner Beast and severe physical effects as well, some of which may be permanent, such as the loss of senses.
It is believed that prolonged use of the Berserker Armor is what caused the Skull Knight to enter his current skeletal form. The Berserker Armor was originally created by Dwarves and it is hinted that there are more than one armor as Schierke said that the Dwarves liked to make this type of armors and Dhaiva recognized the armor as the Plana of Durga, which mean that the Kushan encountered such armor in the past.
It is very durable as it withstood direct attacks from forceful beings such as Grunbeld in his apostle form, and the Makara with out suffering a dent but it doesn’t guarantee the safety of the wearer as the force from such impacts can break and shatter bones, also piercing attacks prove to be more effective as it can make holes in the Armor but it should come from something powerful (e.g. Makara’s bite and the Sea God’s predatory fish’s bite) after some time the holes made on the Armor start to close or “heal” due to it being somewhat magical.
After being used by the Skull Knight, it was kept by the witch Flora for a number of years (possibly centuries or longer) before being given to Guts when she was under attack by a group of Apostles under orders from Griffith to kill her.
