A cackling demon prodded Alexios III.
Hellfire licked the soul and soles of the former emperor.
Although only recently deceased, the weary man tired of eternity in just a few seconds.
“Stop these abuses!” Alexios III finally pleaded. “What have I done to receive such vile treatment?”
The demon laughed even wilder after hearing these words.
“Tell me! I beg you! Why do I find myself in this pit of fire?”
The demon twisted a gruesome face into a smile.
“You’d have to ask them!”
A gnarled finger extended toward the chained skeletons of Alexios IV and Alexios V.
