After the death of Asmodeus, Alpha Hellfire assumed command of the forces of hell. With the disposal of many of the of previous Lords of Hell, including Alpha’s father Mephistopheles, Asmodeus’s daughter Glasya, Belial and Baalzebul, Alpha had practically no one to stand in his way.
The remaining Lords of Hell all quickly swore fealty. And Alpha restyled himself as Alpherion, King of Hell, God of Sin and Tyranny. He later would gain the portfolio of Fear during his ascension to Greater Godhood.
