Neutral Evil or Lawful Evil

"Behind every great fortune there is a crime."





With regards to Law and Chaos, you are Neutral or maybe Lawful

With regards to Good and Evil, you are Evil


Your scored a combination of TWO alignments, Neutral Evil and Lawful Evil. You should go to the bottom of this page and click on both of these alignments for more details, because you are partially one and partially the other.


To give you a general idea, people of this alignment combination are primarily evil and secondarily lawful. They prefer to operate in groups, generally working within The System and manipulating laws to their advantage. However, they will gladly turn on one another as soon as the rewards outweigh the risks, for Law is merely a means to an end ... their real loyalty lies with power alone. Many of the most notorious war criminals and human rights violators would fall under this combination -- people that hid behind The Law and murdered thousands of innocents in pursuit of power. The insatiable greed of Neutral Evil and the deceptive manipulation of Lawful Evil combine to form an ugly amalgam of hypocrisy and corruption. This is rude awakenings and broken dreams, the scourge of everything innocent and pure. It is all the worst aspects of both Organized Crime and Big Business ... power without responsibility, brutality without courage, and respect achieved through intimidation and terror.

Fictional Examples Of This Alignment Combination

Luca Brasi from the original Godfather -- the book, not the movie -- is an example of this alignment combination. In the movie, little is known of Brasi except that he's a feared hit-man and enforcer. In the book, however, a Sicilian midwife calls Brasi the most evil man she ever knew. Among his many sins, he impregnated a prostitute and then ordered the newborn baby to be thrown into a furnace, incinerating his own infant daughter alive because, as he put it, "I don't want any of that race to survive" (what he actually meant by this is unclear). Brasi operated in underworld circles and served at least one Mafia don, preferring to work within a group rather than on his own, but it was clear that his real loyalties lay only with power ... power that he wielded in terrible ways. He is one of the most wicked villians ever created, and the scary part is that Luca Brasi was almost certainly based on actual real-life mafiosos from the Old Country -- men to whom human life meant nothing, and power and respect meant everything.



Your Destination in the Afterlife : GEHENNA

According to Gygax, your soul is going to Gehenna. This was a place of fire and smoke and darkness, supposedly named for an actual valley where the ancient Jews burned their garbage. It was also said to be a place where Isrealites worshiped dark gods and burned children as sacrifices (Luca Brasi again). It is sometimes associated with Sheol, the Hebrew land of the dead. It is not so much hot as "unclean," a place of filth and corruption where everything is blackened beyond any hope of redemption. Considering the alignments in question, Gygax definitely got this one right.

In the AD&D universe, Gehenna has four levels and lies between Hell and Hades.
