The Male Hell Lord Minion

The Male Hell Lord Minion is a humanoid Monster kept in the Facility and is one of the minions of Fornicus, Lord of Bondage and Pain. He is seen once during the System Purge.

Physical Description and Attributes[]

He is depicted as a pale middle-aged bald man, with his face partly covered. He wears a corset-like piece of clothing around his stomach, leaving his chest exposed. He has black, medieval-looking clothing on the rest of his body and black leather arm guards. He carries a long metal pipe which has a long blade forged to the end of it.


While his master Fornicus was released during the first wave of the Purge, the Male Hell Lord Minion is not seen along with him, indicating he is released later on. When he is released, the only time he is seen is in a dark shot of a stairwell, where a male Facility employee is restrained by chains upside down. He stands with weapon in hand as Fornicus comes into view across from him.

He is a direct reference to the Cenobites of the Hellraiser series. A "Cenobite" is a member of a religious order, and they are servants of the primary franchise antagonist Pinhead. They are described as mutilated former humans with supernatural powers who move through other planes of existence in search of new experiences. Unlike the original cenobites, this minion does not appear to be physically injured, unless said injury is being covered up by his clothing.
