An angel of decay was an undead monstrosity that was the very essence of rot.[1]


Standing 9 feet tall and weighing 500–700 lbs with wings and claws, their putrid bodies constantly decomposed, and pools of filth dribbled around their feet.[1]


In battle, they were ferocious, using their ogre-like size and strength to pummel opponents who had not already succumbed to their aura of corruption.[1]

When they spoke they did so with a slurred, muddy voice.[2].

Notable Angels of DecayEdit
