The Devourers of God, or simply The Cult, is a group of supernatural zealots armed with a singular mission: to bring a demon into the physical plane, no matter the cost.

The cult possesses a tremendous deal of influence in the community of Nockfell, having men and women in the local Police Department, Schools, and Churches serving as their spies and replacing anyone who crosses them.

Their pool of followers and loyalists is likely massive, having lookalike replacements for Journalist Clare Nettles, Dr. Enon, and Charley Mansfield.

Story

Shortly after Alyson Rosenberg sold her family's land to the Addisons the cult's temple was buried beneath the newly erected housing complex. Regardless, the cult resumed its activities unbeknownst to the public through the Phelps Ministry.

At an unspecified point in time, Luke Holmes was inducted into the cult and quickly rose through the ranks. Seeking similar treatment, Rosenberg retrieved the Book of Forgotten Truths from the entombed temple and presented it to the Council making demands for a place among them, and they were gladly fulfilled.

Not long afterward, Jim Johnson; distraught by the loss of his sister Evelyn, found a home above the temple and unknowingly brought the cultists what they wanted. The cultists compelled the alien to join them (possibly due to him unintentionally leading Red Eyes to Earth) under the promise of answers. Eventually, Johnson relents and promptly rose into the ranks of the Council.

A young female cultist ventured into the bowels of the Cult's Temple to retrieve five relics needed to complete the ritual that would bring the Red-Eyed Demon into their world completely. Upon succeeding, the Council sacrificed their eager member to Red Eyes where she would serve as the deity's first vessel. However, she quickly lost her sanity as Red Eyes didn't like the limits of a human vessel and, for some reason, human skin.

The Devourer's of God's furthered efforts proved for not as Rosenberg made efforts to sabotage their ritual before it could be completed. It is unknown what followed, but the cult went underground and Red Eyes slaughtered all who conspired against him and trapped their spirits to the cursed Addison Apartments.

The had to once again emerge to cover up their tracks due to the actions of a curious wife of one of their council members: Sandy Sanderson. Sandy snatched one of the cult's tomes and locked herself within her room, determined to learn what her husband was involved in. Her efforts and life were cut short at the hands of a possessed Charley Mansfield. Two of their members were dispatched under the guise of an officer and detective to retrieve both Sanderson's corpse and Charley; replacing the latter with a patsy.

A few months into the arrival of Sal Fisher, Mrs. Packerton, a math teacher at Nocksfell Highschool, came out of hiding as an operating member of the Devourers of God. For months, Packerton abducted several students and deboned them, using whatever was left to make the school's bologna (her disposal of the skin is likely linked to the Red-Eyed Demon's distaste for human skin). Following her death in a drunk car accident, the cult remained quiet, waiting for the right time to emerge.

On the day they commenced the Red Eyes ritual their influence spread through the rest of Nockfell and Red-Eyes was placed into Todd Morrison (as a result of the ritual). Clare Nettles and Dr. Enon were both replaced to ensure that Sal Fisher was given the death penalty.
