Lifting his mouth from his horrendous meal, this sinner first wiped off his messy lips in the hair remaining on the chewed-up skull. first you should know i was count ugolino and my neighbor here, ruggieri the archbishop that i, trusting in him, was put in prison through his evil machinations, where i died._Dante, Inferno
what does this text tell us about where the story takes place, and what kind of people are there?
in Christian and Jewish tradition, Satan was an angel who betrayed his benefactor (God). i think that this makes fraud rather suitable as the 9th circle and also explains his bat wings.
In the 3rd circle of Dante's Inferno, the Gluttonous are torn apart(eaten) by Cerberus the three-headed dog. Flatters are found in the 8th circle and they are who is plunged in excrement. They were full of it in life so they are full of it in death.
