"Do you know what it's like to be forgotten, sub-creature? Once my name was spoken in whispers. It brought dread to this land. Now that petulant Goddess wishes my name lost in the mists of time! No more! I will awaken their nightmares... their darkest memories. They will remember me and they will remember what they feared!"
The Forgotten God is the final boss in the expansion for Overlord. Overlord: Raising Hell. Once married to the Mother Goddess, but he was caught cheating. Bad move. The Goddess locked him away in the Infernal Abyss, destroyed all proof he existed (temples, shrines, documents, etc.), and finally, set a curse upon him to erase all memories of him from the mortals, making them forget more the more they try to remember him. Truly a terrible fate for a god. Though it seems the curse lessens while in close proximity to him. The events of Overlord brought upon enough suffering and general evil energy to give him some power again, so he got to work on trying to lift his curse and escape his prison by drawing mortals into his realm and making them suffer in many terrible(and sometimes hilarious) ways. Unfortunately for him, this caught the Overlord's attention and led to his firey demise.
I've been playing through my Overlord games again and got back to an old hobby I used to do all the time. Studying and drawing down bosses in games as I fight them. Something I often have to do when I can't find any good pictures of them online. So here's my study of the Forgotten God and his various attacks. Maybe he joined the Council of Masked Evil, but we just can't remember. XD
I remember I stopped this hobby a long time ago after working hard on filling a sketchbook with studies on bosses in the Borderlands game.(Took maybe a month or more.) But before I could use them, my little brother had stolen my sketchbook and taken it to school, only to lose it.(I'm betting some other student stole it from him)
