- Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place; and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, nobody is gonna hit as hard as life but it ain’t how hard you can hit it’s about how much you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winnin’ is done. - Rocky Balboa

To be added at a future date. Awaiting several Approvals.
His form becomes that of a monstrous being from the realm of pandomonium. His body is semi grey and purple as well as his yellow robes seem to meld into his flesh in various places. His face is smoothed over and where his mouth and nose should be there are writhing tentacles. His right arm is made of writhing tentacles as well. There are also tentacles attached to his back that writhe around seemingly under his control at one point but also not.
The area is also clouded in a haze of mist that is semi see through in some directions and absolutely opaque. The area's angles seem to simultaneously be acute and obtuse. In the distance you can hear wings of some giant beast flying around in the distance.

Location Description: The top two floors of a hotel. It is the personal sanctum of Azazel, so it's full of books of various kinds mostly fictional writing. It ranges from the Works of Lovecraft to Star Wars Expanded Universe novels. Most of the fictional work science fiction based with exception of a few books similar to the Brother's Grim. Most of the arcane knowledge that is located in there is divided between three rooms, which are fairly large. Each of the rooms are hidden behind bookcases that line the rooms prior which require one to open them in a specific manner. This is done to keep sleepers who may visit him from finding the arcane knowledge hidden within his home and the Athenaeum. The place as a whole is kept neat, and many of the books are copies of his favorite novels or copies of books he has written and had published under his name.
Security Description: It has a mundane security system in built into it in adition to only one entrance and exist usable by normal people. The single entrance is a private lift that requires a key to unlock and passcode to make the lift go to the top floors.
The Lost Athenaeum was made by Azazel to store copies of arcane information from places he's managed to find in other locations in which information. whether or not it is another Athenaeum that was destroyed decades ago or in the aftermath of the destruction of a similar type of location controlled by another group of mages, Azazel gathers up what he can and takes it to the Lost Athenaeum and makes copies of it, giving the copies to other Athenaeums for further storage of the Arcane knowledge. It is basically a large collection of Grimoires and other arcane knowledges about the Arcana that he's found and stored copies off to ensure that at least one copy exists.
He doesn't however store magical items, artifacts, or cursed objects there since it is not meant for housing things like that. It is basically a library of arcane knowledge.
Many books, quite a few written by Azazel himself. Most of the books which are not magic in nature, are fiction. From the Collective works of H.P. Lovecraft, to the novelized versions of science fiction movies like Riddly Scott's Alien.
It contains fossils of long dead creatures, rather than paintings on the wall, fish, reptiles, birds and bird like reptiles, as well as a few small dinosaur teeth and skulls.
