Landokmar of the Deathwok Clan, coloquially known as Landok, was an Anagogic demon, a member of the Deathwok Clan and cousin of Lorne. Having been summoned into Los Angeles when Cordelia Chase accidentally created a portal to Pylea, he assisted Angel Investigations in eliminating a Drokken Beast that had recently appeared in Caritas- forming a strong respect for Angel due to his defeat of the Drakken-, but was bitten during the fight and had to be sent back to Pylea to receive the antidote.
Biography[edit | edit source]
When Angel and Lorne visited Lorne's family when they entered Pylea to recover Cordelia- who had been drawn through the portal that took Landok back to Pylea along with him-, Landok initially praised Angel's bravery despite his 'cow' status, offering him ceremonial garments and the honour of swinging the crebbil as part of the upcoming celebrations, enjoying his tales of his past exploits, such as how he 'chopped off the evil lawyer-beast's hand' and 'the sorcerer who could remove his limbs and reassemble at will'. However, Angel rebelled against the 'honour' of swinging the crebbil when he learned that the ceremony would involve him decapitating an innocent girl, Angel fleeing the village with his would-be victim while Lorne provided a distraction. Landok subsequently came to the resistance to deliver a message from the Priests that ruled Pylea- along with Lorne's currently-decapitated head-, although he only refused to fight Angel for his 'rebellion' because it would have been dishonourable to engage in combat while performing a sacred duty. He was later present when Angel and Lorne explained the new rules of Pylea to Lorne's mother.
Personality[edit | edit source]
He grew up in a martial culture, and seems to have adopted the education there. So Angel wins his respect as he kills a demon that Landokmar can not defeat. On the other hand, he deeply despises his cousin Lorne because he refused to be a warrior. Although he is not fundamentally evil, he does not question the values and traditions of his culture. So he considers it self-evident to want to kill Fred, because humans in Pylea are no more than "cows". However, he later allies with the humans. In and of itself, Landokmar is a good example of a demon who does not believe in evil but simply acts according to his cultivated values.
Powers & Abilities[edit | edit source]
He has a superhuman strength and resilience. It is no problem for him to overwhelm two armed humans at all. He has also earned a reputation as a strong warrior.
Like Lorne, he also has the ability to empathy. But he uses it in a different way. While Lorne reads the feelings of the humans, Landokmar follows his prey with this ability. It is even implied that all demons in his clan (except for Lorne) use this ability in this way.
