Samael wanted Dechala as he wanted no other being since his ascension to daemonhood, yet such was the cruelty within his heart that it was not enough for him to snatch her from her family, as indeed, he could mot surely have done. Instead, Samael wanted to drive her family apart, fermenting fear and hatred within their mortal hearts.
Always his demands were the same: if Dechala was given unto him, he would leave her family peace. Until that time, he hounded their every footstep, violating their homes and their minds, killing their servants and pets in the msot horific ways, and pushing each and every one of them closer and closer to madness. Perhaps it was Samael'sefforts that finally broke Dechala's family, or perhaps the brutal insanity that had emanated from Aenarion since he had drawn the Widowmaker finally affected them too. Who can say? Whatever the case, the day came whe An-Toralis struck a bargain with Samael, and handed over his daughter to the daemon prince.
Rather than simply abuse her and consume her soul, Samael chose to corrupt Dechala so that her beauty and grace would be his forever more. And this he did. Such was Dechala's fear of Samael, and such was her bitterness towards her father for abandoning her, that she was all too willing to become the monster Samael wanted her to be. In anger and frustration, Dechala agreed to marry Samael so long as he granted her the power to revenge herself upon her hated family. Wicked joy in his heart, Samael agreed. He gave Dechala strength of arm and skill with blades, and led her back to the camp of her father. In that fell night, Dechala unleashed all her wrath upon her one-time family, killing her siblings and cousins and drinking the blood of their children. Her father she left until last, and he took many hours to die, screaming his regret and his horror into the darkness.
