A retriever is a mindless construct created by foul sorcery to be warriors and servants for more powerful demons of the Abyss. They specialize in retrieving lost or desired objects, runaway slaves, and enemies and bringing them back to its master.[2]


A retriever appears as a giant spider, that stands twice as tall as a human, with forelegs that end in large cleavers. Its body is about the size of an ox, and its four bulbous eyes gleam malevolently. These eyes are capable of producing magical ray attacks that deal fire, cold, electricity, and petrification to an enemy.[2]
