With grotesquely long arms and legs to match, the sauld can crawl on four legs, climb almost any surface, or spring upright and run as fleet as any gazelle. Their skin ranges from a lackluster orange to a deep red and stretches over their thin, bony frames. Hairless, without eyes or ears, they possess only a gaping, tooth-filled maw, and two slits in their face for a nose. Their spines are long, rising from the flesh of their back in rings that can be grasped by the bold; but more than that the spine extends far beyond the body in a long bony tail. The sauld stink of sulfur and are forever leaving a thin cloud of ash behind them.

Mindless Servants. These are the rank and file of the wretched. Completely unable to project themselves beyond the moment, they obey the commands of their masters without thought, heedless of the outcome. They are heedless of pain or wounds and if led by another devil of greater power, their morale never fails. They delight in the suffering of others and spend their time tormenting the lost souls that wander the plains.

Eternal Destruction. The sauld, when not employed as soldiers, guardians, servants, etc., wander the Shadow Realms in great packs, hunting for things to torment.
