04 of 05 - Modern Compendium: Chaos - A Waste of Desert Sand - Kishin Nayenezgani
Way back in July 2015 when I posted Liberty, I mentioned that although she is a powerful figure of belief in modern life and a prominent Kishin, she wasn’t the most powerful member of her family. Well, at long last it is time to reveal the true leader of the Kishin family – Nayenezgani.
A seminal figure in Navajo mythology, Nayenezgani is a slayer of demons and defender of all humankind – his name literally means “Slayer of Alien Gods.” He and Tobadzistsini, who in some tellings is Nayenezgani’s brother, are gods of war as well as light and darkness, but their most prominent roles are as mythical heroes whose journeys bring them into conflict with demons, monsters, and fiends. Together they act as guardians of humanity against destructive forces of all kinds.
Although not at all well known to pop culture, Nayenezgani plays an important role in the story of the Modern Compendium. In a role similar to Commander Gore of Strange Journey or Kinap in Soul Hackers, Nayenezgani serves as a guide and ally to the player for most of the game, up until the point at which they choose an alignment. As a defender of humanity against alien gods, Nayenezgani would in fact be a penultimate boss fight on both the Chaos and Law routes, while joining the player as a party member in the Neutral route.
As the leader of an already powerful family and a major plot character and boss fight, Nayenezgani is a terrifyingly strong demon. Its resistances and movepool are amongst the best in the game, and yet its level is low enough to allow for flexibility in fusion and growth. Nayenezgani is a figure that fits the tone of Shin Megami Tensei shockingly well, and I’d love to see more Native American mythology featured in the series, so think of this as my contribution. ^^
For more info on this and every other demon in the Modern Compendium, have a look at our extensive and nearly complete Data File, right over (here).

ok so Ron says he doesn’t like spiders because when he was 3 the twins turned his teddy bear into a spider right? the twins are only 2 years older than Ron, which means they were FIVE YEARS OLD when they did this and I’m just??????? like they were five and they didn’t even have WANDS and they managed to deliberately turn a bear into a spider???? even if they managed to steal a wand from their siblings or parents that’s a really tricky bit of transfiguration and at age five most kids are just doing uncontrolled magic….. like TBH in my opinion Fred and George had more innate talent than the trio combined but they just wanted to chill and do pranks and I respect tf out of that
