The Cult of Sheol the Strangler

Hrulvir, like most fantasy cities, is infested with cults, secret societies, crime syndicates, you name it.  One of the many cults that is rumored to exist is called The Cult of Sheol the Strangler.  Its adherents may not refer to themselves as a cult.  No one knows anything about this secretive religion.  In addition to murmurings of sacrifice, all manner of profane rights, the cult is rumored to possess an effigy that hearkens back to time-before-time.  The statue, fashioned from pure gold, is said to portray a massive serpent with moon-shaped eyes, woven around a dying sun.  The sun, it is said, has been fashioned from gem of the blackest hue.  If the statue exists, it is probably worth more than a small kingdom.  This rumor has inspired countless fools to venture into the sordid depth's of Hrulvir's sewers.  Few - if any, ever return.   I am obvious drawing heavily upon the original Conan the Barbarian film for inspiration.  Here's a picture of the leader and his two underlings.
