Devils were a lawful evil race of fiends who hailed from the Nine Hells of Baator, a dominion of the Astral Sea ruled over by the god Asmodeus. True to their alignment, devils were locked into a strict hierarchy which culminated with the Lords of the Nine, the powerful rulers of the Hells.
Types of devilsEdit
There were many different kinds of devils, including some subcategories.
- The most common and numerous race of devils.
- Abishai were a subgroup of baatezu created by Tiamat.
- Imp- small, weak devils with bat-likes wings and a venomous, scorpion-like tail.
- Hellcat- also called bezekira, hellcats were massive, stealthy feline devils.
- Hellwasp devil- large, wasp-like devils with a hive mind and alien intelligence.
- Chain devil
- Fimbrul devil- icy, humanoid devils that could sap heat from living beings.
- Seared devil- humanoid devils that appeared horribly burned.
- Tar devil- humanoid, horned devils that oozed a tar-like substance from their skin.
