We are but the children of darkness and evil,
We make people do the most regrettable deal.
Let us introduce ourselves to you,
So you'll know who is who.

Our eldest is a not so bad guy,
But thinks of himself so high.
Our next is not as cool as a cucumber,
But hotheaded and always has a bad temper.

Another of us wants this and that,
Whatever others do and have.
A brother of ours seems to be tired and weary,
To do this and that, but he's just lazy.

We have twins who are not brave,
Also not a coward, but they always crave.
One hungers for food and anything it can consume.
The other hungers for wealth and power that leads to doom.

Last but not the least,
Is our sister who desires like a beast.
Sexual and sensual desires,
are those that feed her fire.

Now answer us, don't be a poop,
Who are we, as individuals and as a group?


The Seven Deadly Sins. Being the children of darkness and evil refers to the sins being the manifestation of the two. Regrettable deals refer to temptations.

The Siblings are the following (ordered in a manner they appeared in the riddle):
Pride, Anger/Wrath, Envy, Sloth, Gluttony, Greed and Lust.

Never thought of the Deadly Sins. This was good as a Riddle but also as a Mystery. I did think of Anger, and then Emotions, Sleep. I was totally confused.

Good Work, Keeping them Coming
