    ABOUT

    An all too common sight on the Lower Planes, demon stirges are pest and predator, attacking and sucking the blood from weaker demons while avoiding the wrath of those more powerful. Their bodies are long, over 10 feet, and far too heavy to sustain flight on their withered leathery wings. They attack in numbers if possible, but these swarms are not allies; they are rivals intent on feeding and fleeing at the first chance any individual gets.
