A mane was a tanar'ri demon formed when a chaotic evil soul died and was sent to the Abyss.[3] Manes were considered the "fodder" of the Abyss.[4]


Manes were generally three feet tall. They had white eyes and pale, bloated flesh that was often in the process of being eaten by maggots.[1]


Manes fought with their nails and teeth.[2]

Manes could not speak, but they could understand simple language. Like other tanar'ri, manes could summon other tanar'ri.[1]

A mane could potentially travel up the food chain of demonic evolutions and become a demon lord, though this was very rare.[3]

Ships of chaos were tied together with strands of the spirits of manes.[5] Such ships could also be powered by eating manes.[6]


Along with other demons, manes roamed the streets of Menzoberranzan in 14851486 DR.[7]
