An antichrist is a worldly power that works against the designs of the incarnated christ. However at the end of an era - i.e. when worldly processes have progressed to their ultimate conclusion - then all worldly power will be coalesced in a single body and there will be but one Antichrist.
The name Azidak derives from Az - Greed/Lust/Desire and Dahaka - Serpent, for Azidak is driven by lust - especially the lust for power - and pursues it with the cold-blooded ruthlessness.
Zurvan has dictated an eternal battle between the powers of order and the powers and causes of disorder.
The Host of Christ (the Army of Christ) fights for the Good Order that brings prosperity and well-being in the social sphere. Mithras is the Archangel of Christ, supported by other angels such as the angel of Zartus, the Good Wizard, and the angel of Jesus the Gnostic.
Azidak is the mortal enemy of the Christian Host - seeking at every turn to weaken it with his own army - the Horde of the Antichrist, so that he is free to implement his own will without opposition. Satan is the Archangel of the Antichrist, supported by demons such as Az, the demon of greed, and Lucifer the Angel of amoral technocracy and magic.
Footnote: While Christ and the Antichrist are sworn enemies, there is some sense in which they need each other for their full vitality. It is when Azidak is strong, and his miserable influence in the world is keenly felt, that the spirit arises among the people to rally to the banner of the Chrestic Host. Correspondingly while Azidak is ruthless in his attack on the Host, nevertheless complete and total victory over it, removes the challenge that animates him, as without an opponent he becomes merely the lonely operator of a machine, unseen by anyone.
