|“||I don’t have the words to describe it. If the confrontation had taken place in the material realm, planets would have been shattered. I was destroyed utterly several thousand times. But the more of them I consumed and flung back at their beings, the less they could fight. And it was necessary, if painful and exhausting.||„|
|~ Grand Karcist Ion on how he destroyed the Archons in "A Most Contentious Reunion".|
The Archons serve Yaldabaoth, the demiurge, and act as the Old God's servants. They were created by Mekhane out of Yaldabaoth's body as a sign of love.
Meeting the Scarlet King
The Archon was angered by this started to battle Lord Goran and defeated him within an hour, before dragging the being by its horns back to the Scarlet King. The Archon demanded to know why the King of the Darkness Below would attempt to violate Treaty of Thorns and Flesh (a pact that stated that universes conquered or targeted by Yaldabaoth or the Scarlet King are off-limits to each other).
The Scarlet King apologized and stated that Lord Goran acted on his own, promising to punish his servant.
The trials of Grand Karcist Ion
The Archons were partly-responsible for creating Grand Karcist Ion. Trying to stop the mortal who sought apotheosis, they put him through six trials, which he completed. This likely led to him to defeating Yaldaboth and being able to "wear the old god's flesh as armor and craft a kingdom out of it's body".
- In Gnosticism an Archon is an demonic entity that serve embodiment of evil (usually the Demiurge). They are often tied to the seven planets. They are one of many references to Gnosticism in the SCP/Sarkicism-mythos.
- These Archons are not to be confused with other beings described as Archons within SCP, such as those mentioned in Fifthist texts such as Star Signals (SCP-1425) or the believed head of the Southern Fifthists, Reverend Archon Celebration "Big Cheese" Horace. It is unknown how these Archons are related to the Archons of Yaldaboth, if at all.
