Whether they worship a certain deity, an ancient demon, or some existing magical beast, the Cultists are united in their cause. By performing various rituals and other more mundane duties they pursue their common goals with great tenacity.

Their rather zealous approach makes some of them sound insane when it comes to their beliefs and shady practices, and there are many occasions where cults are behind abductions and sacrifices of the innocent with which they often get away with.

While they have a common goal, most can’t resist feeling proud of being a part of such an organization, and so they try to take a bit of that reputation for their names to be heard, names such as Drace Killian, Seren Tombend, and Hortensia Graves.

Good Cultist Names

It is said that most Cultists hide their associations with their organization, both for safety and secrecy concerns. Therefore, it’s not surprising to hear that they often choose a completely different name to remain anonymous.

  • Eleanore Snow
  • Quota Periculum
  • Cyan Wraith

Tempest Graves

He’s still not certain he made the right choice but there he is, working as a doctor for a rather large group of zealous associates who continuously bring all but dead people for him to try to save. More often than not, the task proves to be impossible and he is then tasked to study the body and its anatomy and take as many notes as possible.

  • Lazarus Wyrm
  • Norrix Howler
  • Rhazien Keeling
  • Law Geulimja
  • Fromir Barclay

Ike Talbot

While he’s still one of the town’s blacksmiths, his work deteriorated after he lost his family to disease. Drinking became his occupation of choice, and now he often wanders the streets drunk, claiming a certain deity will come and punish them all. Unbeknownst to him, local aspiring cultists have taken notice and are on their way to hire him, or silence him for all times.

  • Jaymes Latimer

  • Elliot Grimsbane
  • Maggart Cane

  • Children of Koldros
  • The Twilight
  • Crimson Flame
  • Eyeless Ones
  • Order of the Void

  • Targla’s Faithful
  • Dragonlords
  • Righteous Followers

Order of the Dawn

They say the night is darkest before dawn, and this mentality is certainly instilled in this organization’s belief. While they are working on destroying an evil cult of demon worshipers, their zealous approach has left little room for empathy and kindness, and too often does the end justify the means.

  • Hell’s Whisper
  • Skulls of the Seven
  • Unbroken Promise
  • The Damned
  • Timeless Ascension

Cultists are united in their common goal, whether it’s to spread the influence of their deity, resurrect a fallen creature, or summon an ancient demon lord. Their zealous approach makes them tenacious and relentless, and they use all means available to achieve their goals. Think about where and how this character lived before joining a cult, what kind of an organization are they a part of now, what are the goals of both them and the syndicate and create a name worthy of this Cultist’s ambitions.
