    I think of Baphomet as being as much catatonic as anything else during the stretches between his periods of lucidity. Hence, he's just there---a primal figure of chaos, rather than a demon lord.

    I haven't given much thought to him being removed from the Abyssal proper: he's the King of the Abyss, and the Lord of the Endless Spiral. For a king to leave his country would be treason, and a public admission that he has lost his power, which is something that Baphomet cannot do. His identity is wrapped up within his kingship, and when/if he loses that, he will probably die in one manner or another. "Pandemonium" is actually another name for the Abyss IMC, going from the word's root meanings as "Home of all demons."

    In terms of how he fell from "grace" (to respond also to Fallon), there will more on that in the future, too. Abraxus caused most of Baphomet's decline, although there were additional factors in the mix as well . . . .
