No matter how classical literature described these entities, major or minor demons, etc. Facts are, they’ve been around for quite some time but I believe they’re less prominent than how they were described, especially in WMT.
I tend to think of them as minor constructs that gathered to a person initially due to an opening, and kinda fed off said person, and fed back the same loop to gather said energies back.
Sort of a symbiotic relationship.
With that said, as practicing mages – we should be able to put these constructs to use, especially to our advantage. Once we recognize their existence within ourselves, and resolved to put them to work to our benefit – one may say we may be able to use our weaknesses as strengths.
And here we stand, as I think the sin of envy and sloth (and maybe even gluttony) has no personal use to me.
Envy is something I’ve never really concerned myself with since Im too proud, gluttony is some sort of light version of greed. Sloth though is a major issue for me and something I need handled.
Greed, Lust, Pride and Lust are sins I’m aware of and are variables that I am perfectly comfortable in living with.
Envy, Gluttony & Sloth are sins that does not help me – so what to do?
Out With The Old…..
So while Im thinking of putting my core “sins” to work, these lesser sins are still around – one of them a big hindrance to me.
The other two really does not hold any power on me so there’s no sense of doing anything about it. The last one does and I’m thinking of using it as a proactive tool rather than an unwanted personal buff.
Choose your weapons wisely and turn anything, even a disadvantage as an advantage.
