During Mozgus' rise to power, he rescued several tortured souls, outcasts from society, too disfigured to live with the rest of humanity. Mozgus gave each of them a purpose and taught them not to abhor their mutations, but to see them as gifts from God. With his guidance and perseverance, they each became both civil and loyal to Mozgus. He now employs them as his personal bodyguards and torturers. They would do anything for their master.
As Apostle spawn, Mozgus' Disciples share the common feature of enhanced strength, speed, stamina and angelic wings. They are a fearsome group, as they do not fear death; willingly doing anything their master orders them to. They are also expert torturers, having gained experience from being employed for such tasks by Mozgus countless times. They seem to be good at using their torture implements as actual combat tools, and not only that, they are able to strategize and temporarily overpower stronger opponents like Guts.
Mozgus' disciples are introduced during the attack on Mozgus' carriage, counterattacking the offending vigilante soldiers with horrific and gory results. The onlooking refugees watch the vigilantes suffer the same fate they intended to avenge at the disciples' hands. From this point on, they are seen as torturers whenever Mozgus requires them, until their nature as Apostle spawn becomes apparent as they do battle with Guts.
Upon defeat, none of them express displeasure with their deaths, being thankful to Mozgus and God.
|“||But most of all, I am grateful for having met Lord Mozgus.||”|
Mozgus' second in command and one of two members of the group who speaks, recruited by the inquisitor as a child when left to die by his family who could no longer afford his treatment. While the most normal-looking of the disciples, the Crow suffers from both a weak immune system and photo-sensitivity to the point his that skin festers from being in prolonged sunlight. Because of this, he wears a complete black bodysuit of red colored silk that covers his entire body. He covers his face with a crow-like plague-mask, with dark-toned glasses and a copper beak for respiratory means. His torture device of choice is a man catcher, a spiked collar on a pole intended for removing a mounted soldier from his horse, and used against heretics with great efficiency. During the start of the Incarnation Ceremony, the Crow pleaded for Mozgus to escape while he and the others hold the door to chantry. He also was the only one in the room to see the Egg of the Perfect World before becoming an Apostle spawn along with his comrades.
As an Apostle Spawn, the Crow gained the common feature of enhanced strength, speed, stamina and angelic wings, also gaining personal benefits from the transformation. His body suit becomes a part of him, his mask now his face, with his feet transformed into functional talons. He also gained an ability to shoot a cascade of feathers against opponents like flechettes, an ability he used against Guts.
The Crow remained with Angel Face, Bubblehead and the Imp to fight Guts, while sending the Twins with Mozgus. After a fearsome battle with Guts, believing the Egg of the Perfect World as a miracle, the Crow thanks God that he had witness to his miracle but a final lunge that resulted with his throat sliced. The Crow is seen one last time as God Hand Void's shadow vessel.
The smallest of the disciples and the second of the group who speaks, his eyes bluish. His face is split in the middle from his lower jaw up to the nose, resembling a very grave cleft palate and two horn-like features on his forehead. He is sensitive about them, demonstrated when he told Casca to stop touching them when he led her to the torture room. He was also the one who led Nina there. His weapon of choice is a plier in each hand, to be used against heretics by pulling out their eyes. He was alongside with the others turned into an Apostle spawn.
As a spawn, he gained the common feature of enhanced strength, speed, stamina and angelic wings. He also received a higher level of speed than the others because of his short stature. He remained to fight Guts with the others, using his high speed to his advantage, but in the end he sustained heavy damage from the mini-bombs and was defeated.
The Angel Face
The muscle of the group. His mutation was to his face, which doesn't seems to age like the rest of his body. The results being a man with a child's face, possibly with a child's level of understanding and IQ. He is silent and built like a bodybuilder. His weapon of choice is the wheel of torture, similar to the ones Mozgus condemns heretics to during travels. He was one of the people who held the doors when the demons of the area awoke. He was turned into a spawn like the rest of the disciples.
As a spawn, he gained the common feature of enhanced strength, speed, stamina and angelic wings. But on a personal level, he gained way more strength than the others with visible increase in muscle mass. He remained behind to fight Guts. In a seemingly victorious battle, getting some good hits, he eventually lost to him.
The tallest of the group and seemingly oldest, a strong man with a misshapen skull. His weapon of choice is a chain with a set of razor sharp jaws on the end. Turned like the others into a spawn.
As an apostle spawn, he gained the common feature of enhanced strength, speed, stamina and angelic wings. He also gained an increased stamina beyond his comrades, evident when Guts cuts his right arm off and he did not seem to notice or care.
The duo of the group, misshapen individuals with one functional red eye each and appear as mirror images of each others. Their mutation is lowered IQ, mainly because of their slightly misshapen skulls, wearing masks that conceal their squinting eyes. The twins enjoy playing with birds when not needed to torture, appearing to have a fascination for anything that flies in the air, and the fact that they can see Puck is the first hint towards the fact that the disciples are as atypical as they look. Their weapon of choice are oversized saws which they can combine to create an effective scissor-like weapon. They were turned into Apostle spawn with the others.
As apostles, they gained the common feature of enhanced strength, speed, stamina and angelic wings. They were assigned to guard Lord Mozgus on the Bird's orders and left the scene. They witnessed the destruction of the tower and on Mozgus' orders, protected the followers from the possessed pagans. When Isidro saved Casca from being burned at the stake, they went after them. They fought with the group and were defeated by the combined efforts of Puck and Jerome, though the twins die smiling with the knowledge they aided Mozgus to the very end.
- The massive wheel used as a weapon by Angel Face is referenced in the PS4 game Bloodborne - a nearly-identical weapon, likewise used as an instrument of execution and torture, the Logarius' Wheel, is used by the Executioners in Bloodborne. The weapon can be acquired by the player. This very same motif can be found in Dark Souls 3, where various corpses are found tied and mounted to breaking wheels all around the Undead Settlement.
- An enemy type strongly resembling The Imp is in Dark Souls 3, these are enemies that can be found in the Cathedral of the Deep area.
- The Winged Knights of the Angelic Faith of Lothric also hold a startling resemblance to the Disciples' Apostle Spawn forms.
