The Zhentarim Expedition
Bel, Lord of the First
Type: Archdevil of the Nine Hell
Territory: First Circle
The center of the Bronze Citadel holds the personal fortress of Bel, a pit fiend of great power who controls Avernus, the First of the Nine Hells. Bel betrayed the former Lord of the First, Zariel, for his current position. While Bel has succeeded where many failed before him, his climb to power seems to be stalled now, since he does not enjoy the support of other Lords of the Nine, except for possibly Asmodeus.
