Monstrous Monday: Bride of Iuz



Iuz the Evil is brilliant, patient, and decadent.  His ambitions require loyalty, diligence, and creativity.  What better way than with the help of his devoted brides?  

All of Iuz's Brides are devious and beautiful with a strong lust for power...and Iuz.  Many already come from wealthy families, but Iuz "cultivates" any woman who he finds desirable.

Many of his Brides patiently observe an area, alerting their husband if anything provocative occurs.  They will often reside in that area for centuries, cautiously adopting new identities as the years pass on.
