Lawful evil is the realm of the individual who knows what they want and will manipulate the system (legal, cultural, and so forth) to achieve those ends, no matter the consequence. This can be for personal gain (for example, the traditional evil vizier who seeks to claim the kingdom for himself) or to better society at all costs - the "I know what's best for everyone else"-attitude without any of the compassionate limits to action found in lawful good (an excellant example is Cardinal Richelieu of Three Musketeers fame).

Gods

Asmodeus is probably the best example of a lawful evil deity, this diabolic tyrant believes only in his uncompromising vision of the multi-verse and shows no mercy to those who do not bow to him.[1] The other major lawful evil deity is Zon-Kuthon, a sadist who believes in purging the flesh through pain.[2] A host of archdevils and infernal dukes and foul whore queens also serve as lawful evil divine entities that can grant spells to their followers.

Outsiders

The lawful evil outsiders are known as Devils, foul creatures that want to hold dominion over all the creatures of the multi-verse.[3]
