These are a few of the most common daemons, demons, and devils conjured onto the Material Plane by diabolists. Daemons exist along the River Styx, serving both chaotic and lawful forces in their pursuit to bring souls to the Abyss where demons dwell or the home of fiends in Hell.

Impish cacodaemons are the weakest of their kin and seek to inflict pain whenever possible in attempts to sate their unending appetite for mortal souls.

Those who dally too long on the shores of the River Styx are harried by these warped creatures in hosts that grow all the larger the more a victim resists.
