Pride. Greed. Envy. Wrath. Gluttony. Lust. Sloth. In order to reign as supreme among all sinners, Sept went into the depths of the underworld and brought back countless scoundrels to spread his brand of chaotic darkness. Each drop of blood, each motionless corpse, each withered leaf brought him unbridled satisfaction. The completion of his "masterpiece" was accompanied by the scream of fallen, and he at last became the personification of the seven deadly sins.
See Sept, Seizing Vice.
A sept is an English word for a division of a family, especially of a Scottish or Irish clan. The word may derive from the Latin saeptum, meaning "enclosure" or "fold", or via an alteration of "sect". The term is used in both Ireland and Scotland, where it may be translated as sliocht, meaning "progeny" or "seed", which may indicate the descendants of a person (for example, Sliocht Brian Mac Diarmada, "the descendent of Brian MacDermott").
The seven deadly sins, also known as the capital vices (the origin of the others, "capital" comes from the Latin caput "head") or cardinal sins, is a classification of vices (part of Christian ethics) that has been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct Christians concerning fallen humanity's tendency to sin. In the currently recognized version, the sins are usually given as wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. Each is a form of Idolatry-of-Self wherein the subjective reigns over the objective.
