Quote1 Once, when the world was new, Azazel was not so corrupt as he became. I guess none of us were. He was an eater of sins. He sat up on a hill. The villages would give over their sins to a goat and send that goat into the wilderness. Azazel would eat the goat and the village's sins along with it. More sins Azazel ate, more his hunger grew. Quote2
