Talona is the only known evil demi-god who follows the Eight Immortals. Therefore, even though his followers are often assumed to be demon worshippers, they are not. But they would probably be persecuted a lot more, was it not for the fact that The Black Fangs of Talona have specialized in giving advice to rulers and important persons, as well as keeping them alive by checking their food and drink for poison.
