Special Traits

  • Innate Spellcasting. The demon’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 10, +2 to hit with spell attacks). The demon can innately cast the following spells at will, requiring no material components:
  • Magic Resistance. The demon has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The demon’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Slimy Hide. The demon’s hide is extremely slick and oozes with slime. Creatures attempting to grapple the demon do so with disadvantage.

About

This humanoid appears to stand nearly 4 feet tall and has a horselike head with downward-curving horns jutting from its head. Its mouth is filled with long, sharp teeth and its hands and feet end in sharpened claws.

A pair of large, membranous wings jut from its back and its flesh is sickly gray and appears to be covered with a thick layer of slimy mucus.

Geruzou are sometimes called slime demons because their leathery skin constantly drips and oozes thick, jelly-like mucus. Like their brethren, they are fierce combatants and are often employed as hunters and trackers by greater demons.

The typical geruzou stands nearly 4 feet tall and weighs about 140 pounds.
