  • Devil’s Sight. Magical darkness doesn’t impede the ghaddar’s darkvision.
  • Magic Resistance. The ghaddar devil has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

    The terrible and mighty ghaddars are massive creatures standing almost three times as tall as a human but with the head of a donkey. It shuffles with a hunched gait as it moves. Large downward-curving horns protrude from its head. Its body is covered with blackish hair. Its feet are splayed, and its eyes are stark white with hollow black pupils.

    Ghaddars roam the planes of Hell devouring the unfortunate souls of those they encounter. They also consume the essence and being of any outcast devils and dukes who cross their path. A typical ghaddar stands 15 feet tall and weighs 6,000 pounds. A ghaddar assails its foes with a barrage of claw attacks. A grabbed opponent is bitten and, if slain, devoured. Ghaddar are not strategists, and unless directed by a commander or captain, they attack with little organization and finesse. The ferocity of the ghaddar is unparalleled in combat.
