The Red Goddess existed since the day God made Humanity. She toys with God's creations and takes pleasure in their suffering. During the rise of Nimrod, she begins to take interest in his want for power and the goal to rule the Heavens. She assists Nimrod by giving him demonic powers and changing him into the first half breed to walk the earth. She gave him a test to see if he truly meant what he wanted, and sent him to the coldest mountain that no man or woman can possibly survive.
After impressing the Red Goddess with his will to survive the harsh cold, she sent him back to his kingdom with more power in him. As she slowly begins to become impressed by his dedication, she overlooks the fact that he also had an ulterior motive; take over Hell for himself and make her his slave also. However, she soon become aware of his plans.
Angered by this, she seeks to punish Nimrod herself, but discovered that Nimrod was poisoned by one of his own slaves; descending to the earth, she finished off Nimrod for his arrogance and selfishness and sent him to Hell.
The Red Goddess is a very seductive, manipulative, conniving and lustful being of great power. She loves the suffering of others in an sexual manner. She is also very obsessed with Nimrod, and has plans for him that can either humiliate him or make him loyal to her. She enjoys Nimrods suffering more than anyone else in Hell, and seduces Nimrod almost every chance she gets. Though he had betrayed her before, she still has lustful affections for Nimrod and wants him to either succeeded or fail.
