This muscled giant gives a bellowing roar as flames dance in her eyes and across her thick, scarred skin.

Long, stringy hair almost conceals this old woman’s hideous features, but the violet light of her eyes illumines them in sinister shadows. She has greenish, blotchy skin and walks with a hunched gait beneath her dirty, tattered rags.

Phlegethon Corruption

Scorched remnants are usually all that remain when fiends of the Phlegethon legion gain control of an area. Their wanton love of fire and their hunger to destroy leave little behind other than ashes. Creatures that survive these fiery purges are often infused with a spark of hellfire, which serves as a seed to develop into a full corruption as soon as the creature experiences strong pangs of hunger or longing for destruction. Phlegethon corruption manifests as wispy flames across the corrupted creature’s body, which it can focus into an immolating breath. This flame carries a small spark of the corrupted creature’s newfound fascination with fire, and the burning creature feels some of the same compulsion to experience fire dancing on its skin. Phlegethon corrupted creatures often wander far, inflicting fires everywhere they go.

At the best of times, ogres are brutes who like to smash all things within the reach of their clubs. When subjected to the Phlegethon corruption, an ogre becomes an insatiable pyromaniac, setting fires with its touch whenever it can immolate a pretty structure, person, or item. Corrupted ogres think little of their former valuables or members of their band and often watch their treasures or allies go up in flames with a huge grin on their stupid faces. They fly into a rage whenever anyone tries to stop them at their “fun,” including any fiends—even the denizens of the Underhell have learned how unreliable ogre minions can be.

Phlegethon corruption grants the Blazing Soul trait, which includes the Spit Fire attack.

Blazing Soul. The creature has immunity to fire damage, isn’t harmed or ignited by hellfire, and gains the Spit Fire attack. It can’t use the Spit Fire attack with the Multiattack action.

Spit Fire. Ranged Spell Attack: The bonus to hit equals the corrupted creature’s best attack bonus, range 60 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d6) fire damage if the corrupted creature has a challenge rating less than 1; otherwise, 1d10 fire damage per point of the creature’s challenge rating. In addition, the target ignites. Until a creature takes an action to douse the fire, the target takes 3 (1d6) fire damage at the start of each of its turns.
