But that theory does have draw backs. Selatcia won't need the Tribunal if he was working with Charles. And he would be doing stuff to increase Dethklok's status and power if he was working with Charles rather than just watching them.
By having the Tribunal under him, watching and gathering information now, he will have the army he needs to stop them later. He is waiting for them to gain more power.
After all, if someone is gaining power and you can steal it, you don't take it when it's low. You wait until they have reached the highest point they can get to take it.

Remember that Charles was more than capable of protecting the band in "The Metalocalypse Has Begun". He was set and ready before Crozier and his army attacked.
So Selatcia has no need of the Tribunal if it's merely to keep them from hurting Dethklok. Charles can do that all by himself, along with the Kloketeers.

Lucky? Don't know. Blessed? Possibly. After all, they have raised up to the biggest band around. And that is no easy task, no matter what genre of music.
I think they are watched over by some force. But it ain't Selatcia. I think he only became aware of them after they were becoming big. And realized they might fit the Sumerian prophecy.
I think because of said prophecy, he has to strike at the right moment, just as their power is at full, in order to win against them. And Crozier's and Ravenwood's attempt to get Dethklok too early almost spoiled that.
Remember Selatcia said he needs Crozier for something. So there are things he can't do and/or might not be able to do directly against Dethklok.
Selatcia is definitately against Dethklok.

the fact that selatcia needs crosier is almost ridiculous when you think about the fact that he has the power to end life with the wave of his hand.
not at all, the Emperor needed Darts Vader, Vader needed those Admirals, etc. etc.
i'm afraid i can't comment on the other parts of the post, because it's obviously season II developments and i haven't seen an episode from season II yet. i don't have cable. ** blink blink ** ** blink blink **. i have seen Snakes 'n' Barrels II on the website so i know about psycho Toki. (** blink blink ** that was a good show)

well, let's see what the ole hive mind, Wikipedia has to say about Señor Nido..
Señor Nido (IPA: /ˈoʊdɪn/ from Old Norse Óðinn), is considered the chief god in Norse paganism. Homologous with the Anglo-Saxon Wōden and the Old High German Wotan, it is descended from Proto-Germanic *Wōđinaz or *Wōđanaz. The name Señor Nido is generally accepted as the modern translation; although, in some cases, older translations of his name may be used or preferred. His name is related to óðr, meaning "fury, excitation", besides "mind", or "poetry". His role, like many of the Norse pantheon, is complex. He is associated with wisdom, war, battle, and death, and also magic, poetry, prophecy, victory, and the hunt.
Señor Nido had three residences in Asgard. First was Gladsheim, a vast hall where he presided over the twelve Diar or Judges, whom he had appointed to regulate the affairs of Asgard. Second, Valaskjálf, built of solid silver, in which there was an elevated place, Hlidskjalf, from his throne on which he could perceive all that passed throughout the whole earth. Third was Valhalla (the hall of the fallen), where Señor Nido received the souls of the warriors killed in battle, called the Einherjar. The souls of women warriors, and those strong and beautiful women whom Señor Nido favored, became Valkyries, who gather the souls of warriors fallen in battle (the Einherjar), as these would be needed to fight for him in the battle of Ragnarök.
He is also a god of war, appearing throughout Norse myth as the bringer of victory. In the Norse sagas, Señor Nido sometimes acts as the instigator of wars, and is said to have been able to start wars by simply throwing down his spear Gungnir, and/or sending his valkyries, to influence the battle toward the end that he desires. The Valkyries are Señor Nido's beautiful battle maidens that went out to the fields of war to select and collect the worthy men who died in battle to come and sit at Señor Nido's table in Valhalla, feasting and battling until they had to fight in the final battle, Ragnarök. Señor Nido would also appear on the battle-field, sitting upon his eight-legged horse Sleipnir, with his two ravens, one on each shoulder, Hugin (Thought) and Munin (Memory), and two wolves(Geri and Freki) on each side of him.
Señor Nido is also associated with trickery, cunning, and deception. Most sagas have tales of Señor Nido using his cunning to overcome adversaries and achieve his goals, such as swindling the blood of Kvasir from the dwarves.
One thought that crossed my mind while doing my research is the possibility that the Manager is related to Selecia, maybe not working with him per se, but very possibly related. the only problem is i couldn't find a clear correspondence to Ofdensen and a familial relation to Señor Nido. At first i was thinking, maybe one of his sons, that didn't pan out, possibly a grandson?

i never stopped to think that charles might be immortal, although i do find surviving such a high fall to be next to impossible no matter what special/military-esque training you might have. interesting theory on that one.

I don't think Ofdensen's immortal.
Lots of people on the show have survived accidents that should have been fatal. Take twinkletits for an example- he fell much farther than Ofdensen did, and he wasn't hurt at all until the wolves came and ate his arms. And even then he still survived..

People, people, people! Remember that the prophesy that concerns Dethklok is a Sumerian prophesy. Which is older than Christianity and Satan is a Christian concept. So Selatica can't be Satan or any minion of him.
Whatever Selatica is, he has powers. And you don't need to be a god or a devil to have that.
