The four hellhound beasts are beings from a realm held deep within our planet's core. Each beast holds dominion over the principles of their respective crown prince. Together, they help to keep the world at a balance from the inside out, guided by the wisdom of the princes they serve. Their power, however, is only effective if all four beasts are present—if one strays from the pack, the balance between darkness and light becomes uneven, which in turn causes the world above to suffer the consequences.
November in particular, known as Novey to the other hellhounds, serves the crown prince Belial. They are tied with the element of earth, the north, and darkness. They preserve darkness with Goatfish (Requiem), and keep it in equilibrium with their counterpart Invictus' light. They are "The Grounding", usually associated with independence, realism, and the rejection of self-deceit or outside influences.
