Title: Garden of evil  
Creatures: Aplacum, demon
A huge, bulking creature covered in scales, with 7 fingers on each hand each with a long sharp talon.

In his demon form he is a great hulking creature with a face that looks like being mummified for a thousand years. He shows deep fleshy wrinkles, hundreds of sharp teeth and has blank black eyes As a human, Vandalus is of tall stature, with dark hair and piercing blue eyes. In his human form his name is Micah Grant.
Vandalus, one of the most violent, destructive demons of the underworld, fought for centuries against his arch nemesis Aplacum for domination of the dimensions.
If one ever killed the other, the vanquishing demon would reign supreme, bringing untold horrors to all humanity.
The Elders were able to lure Vandalus away from his loyal minions long enough to cast a powerful spell on him, banishing him to earth in the
early 19th century. To escape and become a Vandalus again he needs a kiss of true love. If he could get a Charmed One to fall in love with him, her kiss would be able to restore his powers.
Vandalus would hypnotise children and train them so they become part of his army. He can manipulate human mind at will.
