The Lord of Trickery, Mephistopheles is a true rogue who allies solely with himself and embodies high functioning chaotic evil in its most raw, terrible form.

For every gift Mephistopheles expects a reward in turn and he favors rituals involving betrayal, murder and sacrifice - failure to provide him with a reward can easily result in a formerly favored student being subjected to one of Mephistopheles many elaborate tortures for the amusement of the Chaos Lord.
As the Lord of Trickery Mephistopheles encourages lies and mistrust - he also has an affinity to vermin and his temples are filled with vermin that often feed on the rotting carcasses left over from the many sacrifices that the Chaos Lord commands from his followers.
