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.

Accuser Devil

Accuser Devil

Also known as a the Zeebub devil, this childlike blasphemy conjoins the features of a plump human infant and a gigantic, gore-fattened fly.

A accuser devil records all that it sees and may pass its visions on to another creature. By remaining in contact with a willing creature, it can replay up to 24 hours of witnessed events, or shorter incidents if it so chooses. It takes  1 round to replay 1 hour of recorded images, which the target receives in a flash of information, without sound or other sensory information. After relaying its findings, the zebub cannot replay its visions of those events again. A zebub cannot replay its visions for an unwilling creature or as an attack, no matter how horrific the events it might have witnessed.

Childlike souls tormented and scoured of innocence by the flames of Hell and then reshaped by the mad whims of the archdevil Baalzebul, accuser devils embody the foul, merciless, and pervasive corruptions of the infernal host. From the depths of the Pit they rise in buzzing, shrieking plagues unleashed to taint the land, despoil weak flesh, and reveal exploitable secrets. En masse they display little of the cunning or subtlety typical of devilkind, spreading ruin at the will of their fiendish masters. Alone, though, a zebub is a craven, deceitful thing, lurking in darkness and filth, endlessly spying and vying for the petty favors of greater evils.

Accuser devils are almost exclusively formed amid the cesspits of frozen, the eighth layer of Hell. Within the Pit they serve countless infernal lords as messengers and spies, with droves being unleashed upon myriad mortal worlds with a mandate to seek out souls ripe for corruption or those whose sins might lead to greater damnations. Many zebubs overstep the freedoms of such vague missions, seeking to manipulate weakwilled or easily intimidated mortals into all manner of trivial evils, dispensing shrill orders in their buzzing, childlike voices. Despite the fact that many zebub plots end in the zebubs’ own revelation and destruction, few diabolical lords allow the slaying of their spies to go unpunished.

The zebub’s ability to grant other creatures visions of what it has witnessed makes it an unusually useful creature to many conjurers. Relatively easy to conjure with a spell like lesser planar ally or lesser planar binding, an accuser devil can be an invaluable spy. One simply orders the foul little devil to become invisible and then inf iltrate an area where visual information is hidden, with orders to teleport back to its point of origin to grant visions of what it observed to its master. Those who make use of accuser devils in this manner should take care to watch their own actions or what they reveal, of course, for such a creature can just as easily be bribed or intimidated into revealing visions that some conjurers might not want being made public. It’s common practice among conjurers to kill their accuser devils once they’ve completed their missions of inf iltration and observation.

These lesser devils stand just over 2 feet tall and rarely weigh more than 25 pounds.

Amnizu, Devil

Amnizu, Devil

An amnizu is a short, stocky winged guardian of the gates of the Nine Hells. Also known as the Styx devil. Controlling legions of lesser devils, they ensure that none can pass into the plane through the River Styx without answering to them.

Although the amnizu caste is considered greater in status than that of the horned devils, amnizu are required to be “demoted” to serve as horned devils before they can ascend any higher in the devil hierarchy. This is because the amnizu are dominated by Prince Levistus, and often serve his wishes rather than those of the Dark Eight.

Nupperibo, Devil

Nupperibo, Devil

The nupperibo is a grossly fat devil one of the least powerful of its kind. In Hell hierarchy only one step higher off lemures.

They are mindless bulks, harmed permanently only by good-aligned magic and holy weapons. These creatures are the natural spawn of Hell and not considered true devil, so other higher ranking devils will usually destroy these and re-mold them into Lemures. This causes many devils uneasiness as an even more ancient race is native to their home plane. Fortunately for the devils, almost no Nupperibos survive long enough to transform into anything greater.

Many hordes of nupperibo devils are under the command of bone devils.

Larva

Larva

Abyssal larvae, also called soul larvae, are not unlike grubs or rot grubs. When people are corrupted by chaos and evil, these chaotic evil mortal souls flow to the Abyss. Larvae can, if given enough time become demon lords. The larva is one of the most selfishly evil of all souls who sink to lower planes after death, and dwell in the gloom of Hades.

Larva look like medium yellow maggots that have gloomy human heads. They scream in pain and when found in Hell they can be located in the Maggot Pit located near Tiamat. Many night hags and other creatures of the evil planes use larva as slaves and barter.

Malebranche Devil

Malebranche Devil

Malebranches (also known as war devils) are the champions of the Nine Hells who only obey pit fiends and archdevils. They also lead lesser devils in skirmishes against those who get in the way of their masters’ plans. Malebranches brought to the mortal world sometimes rise as warmasters or generals, leading the armies of evil tyrannical mortals.

With their large heads and jaws the malebranche is known as hulking, horned warriors, enforcers, punishers of Hell.

Giant Fly

Giant Fly

Much like their tiny cousins, giant flies feed upon carrion. Wholly monstrous, these disgusting creatures have been known to sometimes attack still-living foes, particularly when they are hungry or living creatures disturb their meals. Some species of giant fly bear their larva live, ejecting piles of undulating giant maggots from their engorged abdomens rather than laying eggs in decaying corpses.

In Hell the great Baalzebul (lord of the lies) uses giant flies as scouts as he can see through their eyes with magic.

Drowning Devil (Sarglagon)

Drowning Devil (Sarglagon)

This serpentine creature has finlike wings, ram horns, four eyes, and arms that end in masses of tentacles. Called sarglagons in their Infernal tongue, drowning devils take great pride in being the best-adapted guardians of Hell’s waterways, and are among the few fiends who travel the seas and rivers of the multiverse as part of larger infernal plots. Even in the air or on the ground, a drowning devil moves with a haunting litheness as though it were swimming. A typical drowning devil weighs 600 pounds, and can exceed 15 feet from head to tail.

Winterwight

Winterwight

The winterwight is one of the most feared of the undead. A winterwight looks like a wight but covered in ice and frost. The frozen undead normally travel alone but some are so intelligent that they have taken over cities as rulers (much like a lich).

The winterwight have a dealing blightfire that they can use, it burns like a black flame and drains the life of its target.

Some powerful winterwights have ruled cities in Hell and some even control floating chunks of black ice on the Negative Plane. But mostly they can be found in the deep snow covered ruins located in the north of Esperia.

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.
