Dretches were the least powerful of tanar'ri demonkind.[3]


Dretches were ape-like creatures with arms ending in clawed hands. They stood about 4 feet tall and weighed 60 pounds. They were unable to speak and communicated only telepathically.[3]


Dretches were thoroughly wicked and possessed a driving need to cause dismay and ruin.[citation needed] They were very cowardly and incredibly stupid, but they were more afraid of their demon overlords than of death.[2][3]


Dretches preferred to attack in large mobs to overwhelm their victims. Each dretch had the ability to summon another dretch, but that ability often failed.[3]


Dretches served greater tanar'ri demons as fodder.[2][3]
