Edolon Vryche is a secondary troll and an antagonist in Vast Error.
He is a member of Weird Al's mysterious apocalyptic laughter cult that forces and brainwashes people into being happy. He regularly tries to coerce Serpaz into joining it. His associated alchemic sigil is purification.
Edolon's name likely comes from the word eidolon, meaning either "a representation of an ideal form", a ghost, or an elusive entity, all of which fit Edolon's character and motif to some degree.
Personality and Traits
Edolon is as mysterious as he is creepy. From what little is known of him, Edolon seems to behave like a religious fanatic and is in constant pursuit of new members. He knows how to get under people's skins, and isn't afraid to prey on their insecurities under the guise of concern or innocent questions. Edolon has shown uncertain and nervous qualities before the sacrifice of his lover, Seinru, which is heavily contrasted by the present character he is known to be.
Serpaz considers Edolon to be a nuisance and a creep, largely due to her distaste for the cult he follows on the account of how their vastly differing ideals about how to bring about laughter (Serpaz claims that they make liberal use of brainwashing to make people laugh). She finds his constant invitations to join his cult to be greatly annoying and wishes that he leave her alone.
Seinru was the lover of Edolon before they were sacrificed for the cult under vague circumstances, possibly in order for him to obtain the powers of doom and reach his full potential.
- Edolon's blood is described as being Aubergine colored.
- The cult mascot used in Edolon's supposed Skorpe theme is a reference to Weird Al Yankovic's character on Wander Over Yonder, Dr. Screwball Jones. Both the cult and Weird Al's character attempt to make others laugh through coercion and force, rather than through genuine means. Dr. Screwball Jones is used as the symbol of the cult, and a link to his song 'Let The Pun Fit The Crime' is left in the narration.
- His would-be classpect is Bard of Doom.
