Cacodemon worshippers want to hide within (inferior) human society - but rarely do dangerous things like try to become a non-Chaotic god. They mask themselves as acceptable outsiders (traveling merchants, exiles, and so on) where they can hide in plain sight.

Arkat was always a passionate devotee of whatever he was devoted to. He just remembered everything he learned from his previous devotion.

Not the slightest bit of Lokomoko, who never tried to pretend to be anything other than what he claimed he was - the greatest Storm cultist in the world.
