Tchernobog is depicted as an evil God in Blood. This is not entirely accurate. In
actuality, he is a necessary force in the universe. He is as old as time, and serves as
the force that separates the dimensions from one another. Without him all the dimensions
would intermingle, and ultimately destroy one another. This force cannot be destroyed,
however, in order to perform its duties it must inhabit a physical form that is vulnerable to
destruction. It’s original form was destroyed several millennia ago, and since then it has been possessing physical
bodies it has come across in order to continue to perform its functions.
This need for physical creatures was one of the sources for the creation of the Cabal. The force that
is Tchernobog is not an evil one, and actually is morally ambiguous. Usually its will
supersedes that of the physical creature it inhabits, but there have been exceptions.
The 5th incarnation was a Buddhist high priest that altered Tchernobog’s personality to
include his religious regimen. The 16th incarnation was a bitter and evil man whose
hatred colored Tchernobog as well. Currently, the Tchernobog force has no physical
incarnation, and so cannot perform its duties. In Blood 2 this fact has devastating
effects on this reality. The One That Binds refers to the Bindings Tchernobog creates to
separate various dimensions. The Sleeping God refers to Tchernobog when he has no
physical incarnation, and is nothing more than a roaming power source.
This is the title given to the generals of Tchernobog. Throughout history there have only
been a few groups of Chosen.
