Blood fiends are abominations who feed on the blood of living creatures. Initially created in the Elemental Chaos, they are just as prevalent in other planes, wherever there are creatures to provide food for them.[1]

Blood fiends are often mistaken for demons. Though they are not, in fact, demons, they are fiends, as their name implies.[2]

Physical characteristicsEdit

Blood fiends are huge creatures with a purple-black[3] or reddish[4] scaly hide, a lupine muzzle with great fangs, red eyes, and four clawed hands.[3] Each of these hands has five razor-sharp claws extending from them, as do the feet.

AbilitiesEdit

Blood fiends prey on other fiends,[5] as vampires prey on humans. They also have the same ability to transform other creatures into their kind.[6] In order to assist them in their hunts, blood fiends can use the ability terror gaze, which immobilizes their unfortunate victim, making the feast all the easier for the blood fiend. Blood fiends themselves are immune to fear.[4]

Most wounds inflicted on them will heal in a matter of moments.[3]
