Demon, Choronzon (Chaos Demon)

This creature stands at least 20 feet tall with a huge, muscular body. Its massive arms and legs end in wicked claws. Its rounded, squat head, sits atop an extremely thick, almost nonexistent neck. The creature’s gaping maw is filled with sharp fangs. Two large swept back horns jut from its head just above its rounded eyes.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Aura of Confusion (Su)

A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by that choronzon’s aura of confusion for one day. Other demons are immune to the choronzon’s aura of confusion. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Breath Weapon (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds, a choronzon can breathe forth a cone of bluish gas in a 40-foot cone. The gas lingers in the area for 1d2 rounds before dispersing. A creature killed by a choronzon’s breath weapon has its body break apart into its individual protons, neutrons, and electrons. Creatures killed in this manner can only be restored to life by a miracle, wish, or true resurrection spell. The save DC is Constitution-based.

ECOLOGY

Choronzons are the demons of confusion, dispersion, and ultimate chaos. They are huge behemoths seemingly bred for war and battle, though most rarely take part in the Abyssal wars that rage between the planes. Choronzons prefer to use their talents on weak-minded creatures such as those that inhabit the Material planes, and as such, they are usually encountered there. These demons derive great pleasure in laying waste to villages and towns and even small kingdoms (if the mood strikes them).

Amongst demonkind, choronzons are both feared and hated. A great enmity exists between balors and choronzons that scholars and lorekeepers can document, but cannot determine the source of the hatred between these two demonic races.

A choronzon stands about 20 feet tall and weighs about 9,000 pounds. Its scaly flesh is bluish-black and its eyes are crimson. Its horns are darker than the rest of its body and the creature’s claws are pitch black. Its teeth are dull ivory in color.

A choronzon begins combat by surrounding itself with its aura of confusion and then unleashing its breath weapon at its foes. Creatures surviving either attack are subjected to its word of chaos. Opponents that continue to press the battle are met with a mix of physical attacks and spell-like abilities. When it uses its Power Attack feat, a choronzon usually takes a –8 penalty on its attack rolls in order to gain a +8 bonus on its damage rolls.
