Halpas is the demon lord of the air, and he is said to be honored by cruel avian creatures everywhere as well as fog and cloud giants. Halpas is consumed by rage and violence, turning against even his followers when filled with anger. He appears as a tall, reed thin humanoid with huge wings made from darkness. His eyes glow red with a feral malevolence and his feet have talons like a bird of prey. When his wings spread in flight he is said to darken the sky itself, and he fights with great claws of razor sharp darkness that extend from his hands. Halpas exults in unhindered destruction, using his terrible power to prove his strength by oppressing those too weak to resist him, harrying them to exhaustion just to watch them suffer. In the War in Heaven, he was opposed by Þunor’s strength, and despite his blustering and arrogant demeanor, proved to be cowardly and fearful when confronted by an opponent with the strength to oppose him.

Halpas’ followers are fanatical in their love of destruction and will often seek to call down storms upon ships or cities in the name of the lord of fury. He is a dangerous deity, given to extreme acts of generosity towards those who honor him, but prone to unpredictable acts of rage that sweep in all those in his path, with no regard for whether they are friend of foe. Arrogant and touchy in the extreme, Halpas never forgets a slight, nursing his grievances with a seething rage and plotting his revenge.
