The beasts or “abominations” of the Void are broken into three different classes; lesser demons, greater demons, and archdemons. Lesser demons are vast in number and are highly expendable. They usually have little power and magical ability, and generally act as lackeys or cannon fodder for greater demons and archdemons. Greater demons rule over a single plain. All within their plain is theirs to shape, twist, and toy with. Greater demons answer only to archdemons, who act as lords or governance over clusters or collectives of plains.
Archdemons themselves are very unique. They come in many shapes, forms, and with varieties of power and ability. Archdemons have been known to war amongst themselves over rights to souls and over plains. Aside from the corrupted gods themselves, archdemons are the most powerful beings of the Void.MARLOCKS
Lesser demons, Marlocks are the bound servants of the Void. Numbering in the hundreds of thousands, these vicious creatures are seen as expendable in the eyes of the greater demons and certainly the archdemons. When not used as guardians or administers of punishment to mortals, these beasts are used as the bulk of numbers in demonic armies. Marlocks have no magical ability, and rely solely on weapons and their brute strength.HELLHOUNDS
Unique to the realm of Furos, these lesser demons are hellish canines that can literally erupt in flame. They are used as war dogs by the Marlocks, and many greater demons keep packs of these beasts as guardians or companions.HARPIES
Lesser demons of Dementia and Althropus, these hag ravens feast upon raw flesh and delight in the tormenting of mortal souls trapped in their home plains. Harpies, while not at all magical, are very lethal. Their sharp fangs and razor talons are deadly and painful to the flesh and bone. Sadistic in nature, harpies will screech and chatter in delight as they pick and rake at their prey, slowing debilitating them and then painfully devouring them.ASGARDS
Lesser demons of Furos, Asgards lead the hordes of Furos’ Marlocks. Standing seven feet tall and brutishly strong, Asgards are formidable foes to be faced. While not magical themselves, Asgards often carry enchanted weapons, usually enchanted by fire. As Asgards are only native to Furos, the Marlock masses in the other Void Realms are mastered by other demons.SUCCUBI
A greater demon. The seductress she-demons that play upon mortal men’s most lustful and romantic fantasies, many scores of men have been lost to the Void at the hands of a succubus.
On the usual, succubi visit men in the night in their dreams, or if summoned will play mercy at the hands of their summoner. Having a soft touch, succubi use charm and illusion magics to bewitch and seduce their prey. Many plains across the Void Realms are ruled by these demons, as they can be found all across the Void.
In battle succubi use their charm magics to entrance their foe, rendering them paralyzed or even turning them against their own allies. Paladin squires are rigorously drilled to resist the type of charm magics used by succubi and other demons of their sort.SHADES
Greater demons of immense magical power. Shades are sadistic and cruel spirits that delight in violence, agony, and the torment of mortals. Shades typical are masters of destructive and summoning magics. Fire, frost, and lightning all are in their arsenal of destructive powers. And they are capable of directly summoning lesser demons such as Marlocks, Asgards, and Hellhounds, albeit it one at a time and with a noticeable taxation on their immediate magic reserves. Necromancy is also a prominent ability amongst shades.
In the mortal world, a Shades’ power is diminished, though not dramatically so. Shades powers are on par with the demonic succubi, and most Shades have total dominance over their plains and minions.TAURUSES
Brutish yet intelligent, Tauruses are greater demons of Furos and Dementia. They rule over their plains with a bloodlust and thirst for war. A common sight across the plains of the Void is to witnessing a roaring Taurus leading a charge of Marlocks and hellhounds against a rival demon. Though not magical themselves, Tauruses make use of magic weapons and enchanted armor and relics. Towering at ten feet by mortal basis, Tauruses are dangerous monsters to face and should not be fought single-handed. Even by a Paladin.FURIES
Straight from a priests nightmare, these insidious fire breathing lesser demons are native only to Furos. They are fast, strong, and can release a torrent of flame rival to a young dragons. These monsters are used as torturers and punishers in Furos, and as reavers on the battlefield. None to be taken lightly, these dangerous demons are only to be engaged by only the most elite fighter.GARGONS
Lesser demons, Gargons are distantly connected to harpies. Though they are far more intelligent. They like Furies are used typically as toturers though they can be find throughout the Void. They are sadistic and cruel, and tend to taunt and “pick at” their prey when it is in a helpless state.MORE TBA!
