Nycaloth Yugoloth

Nycaloth are these arrogant commanders of the yugoloth armies have green skin, muscular arms, a doglike head and a pair of large bat-like wings.

Yugoloths (also often called daemons or nicknamed loths) are neutral evil fiendish natives of the Blood Rift who are neutral to the affairs of the other fiendish races, interfering only when they see a situation that may be profitable or a potential for the advancement of their own schemes. The yugoloths are manipulative, secretive, and mercenary by nature, often acting as soldiers for deities in their own private wars, or even at times aiding both sides of the Blood War.  The yugoloths present themselves as simply greedy mercenaries, willing to sell their services to both sides, while behind that public face, the members of their highest castes view the entire course of the conflict as their own thing to control and manipulate until they decide to end it, unify the Fiendish Planes, and turn their attention to the planes of Good.

Leukoloth

Leukoloth

This human-shaped beast has a horse’s skull for a head. It walks on cracked hooves and bears the rotting wings of a carrion bird. Deacons of the Horseman of Pestilence, leukoloths serve their lord in Abaddon as well as across the planes by spreading plagues and pandemics. The skulls that serve as their heads can be replaced with any skulls, yet these creatures choose horse skulls to show their loyalty to the Horsemen. The creature’s true head is merely a blistered knob between its shoulders.

A  leukoloth can unleash a cloud of corpse-bloated, biting black flies in a 20-foot cone

Hydroloths, Yugoloth

 Hydroloths

Yugoloths (formerly known as daemons) are neutral evil natives of the lower planes of the Bleak Eternity of Gehenna and the Gray Waste of Hades.

While at first glance these creatures seem like enormous and foul bullywugs, their dangerous gait, dead eyes, and wicked claws give away their fiendish nature. In their home environment, hydroloths swim the sickening rivers and seas of Abaddon and the River Styx, ducking beneath the rivers of pus and bile only to leap out at enemies and rend their flesh with tooth and claw. It is said these are among the few creatures able to survive in the deadly waters of the River Styx. When called to the Material Plane, hydroloths serve powerful spellcasters, protecting domains dotted with pools, streams, and even sewer complexes. Associated with death by drowning, these fiends use a favored tactic to draw the most anguish from their victims. Hydroloths  first attack with their inky black sleep spittle, hoping to render victims unconscious. With their opponents unable to fight back, hydroloths drag their enemies into the foul waters they call home and delight as the liquid fills their victims’ gasping lungs. If unable to drown a victim, they finish the job with jaws and claws.

Hydroloths possess an awkward gait, springing back on their heels and leaping about like humanoid frogs. Even so, they move in an unpredictable manner, twisting their bodies with each hopping movement. Hydroloths can also unfurl flaps of skin that allow them to glide through the air.

Caulborn

Caulborn

This creature has a split-jawed mouth, a hoodlike growth on its head, and two hideously elongated fingers on each hand. It stands medium in height.

Caulborn are a race of telepathic prophets and historians who subsist on the psychic energy of others. They wander the planes in search of new facts and concepts to add to the pulsating brain-sacks that serve as their collective memories. When a band of caulborn find a particularly interesting site, they settle down to dwell there for many years until they feel that they have learned all there is to know about the location.

A caulborn is literally a creature of the mind. Its body is self-sustaining, and it exists solely to record and catalogue new thoughts. While they are not evil, caulborn have little interest in alliances or friendship with other races.

Vargouille

Vargouille

The vargouille is is a foul, disgusting, vampiric outsider from evil-aligned planes. A vargouille resembles a human head attached to a small, limbless, tentacled central body. Bat wings grow slightly behind the ears. Vargouilles are usually red in color.

The vargouille is an evil beast which attacks and kills in a number of horrible and sadistic ways. For a start, there is its bite. In addition to being highly painful and often involving the sucking of blood, a vargouille bite is extremely poisonous. Secondly, there is the vargouille screech. After weakening opponents with biting, the vargouille likes to unleash a paralyzing, high-pitched wail. This squeal renders those who hear it paralyzed with fear. Last, and worst of all, there is the vargouille kiss. After paralyzing victims with the screech, the vargouille will often come and give victims a foul, smelly kiss. This kiss gradually causes its victims to become vargouilles themselves. First the hair falls out, then the skin turns red and tentacles sprout, and finally the head separates from the body and grows wings. Daylight disrupts this process, and some disease-curing spells are known to completely reverse the effect.

Vargouilles speak Infernal.

Barghest

Barghest

The barghest is portrayed as a goblin-like creature that comes from the plane of Gehenna to feed on humans. These evil creatures can change form to appear as a dog or wolf, or a large goblin at will.

On the plane of Gehenna, barghests “live in isolation from one another, each having its own stronghold and force of servitors, ruling a smoking rift despotically,” according to the article. When a barghest spawns, it sends its litter of six to the Prime Material Plane to feed. These whelps will live alone or in pairs near isolated human communities or with goblin bands, retaining their natural form amongst goblins. Barghests are almost indistinguishable from goblins by other races, except that a barghest’s eyes glow orange when the creature becomes excited; in canine form a barghest can become very difficult to notice when motionless, and is almost “impossible to tell from a normal dog, except that other dogs will fear and hate it, attacking at every opportunity.” Goblins worship barghests, fearing and serving them and going to great lengths to provide human sacrifices; barghests, in turn, slay the powerful enemies of the goblins and generally enrich their hosts’ treasure. A barghest has certain magical abilities, such as being able to charm other creatures, project illusions, and affect other creature’s emotions.

Magic weapons are required to harm a barghest. A barghest cannot be harmed by fire, but a barghest in canine form can be sent back to its home plane if hit by a magical fire attack. A barghest can slay and devour humans, which causes the barghest to become larger and more powerful through “the unholy vampirism attendant upon the slaughter of humanity.” The creature’s skin darkens as it grows, from yellow towards a bluish red, eventually terminating in a deep blue. Upon attaining full growth and power, according to the article, the barghest shifts itself back to Gehenna in search of its own reeking valley rift. Barghests can work in packs, and will hide and use illusions to conceal their true numbers. A barghest can feed on the corpse of a slain humanoid opponent, devouring both flesh and life force to increase its own life energy; this destroys the victim’s body and prevents any form of magic that normally brings the dead to life from succeeding.
