Only this shadowy bat-winged demon’s teeth and claws have any sense of physicality to them—the rest is lost in darkness.

Once per minute, a shadow demon increase its fly speed to 240 feet for 1 round.
During any conditions other than bright light, a shadow demon can disappear into the shadows as a move-equivalent action, effectively becoming invisible. Artificial illumination or light spells of 2nd level or lower do not negate this ability.
A shadow demon is utterly powerless in bright light or natural sunlight and flees from it. A shadow demon caught in such light cannot attack and can take only a single move or attack action. A shadow demon that is possessing a creature using magic jar is not harmed by sunlight, but if it is struck by a sunbeam or sunray* spell while possessing a creature, the shadow demon is driven out of its host automatically.
There is no ” sunray” spell so it seems reasonable to use searing light instead.
Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary, pair, or haunt (3–8)
Shadow demons resemble standard shadows with wings. They are the incorporeal form of a demon trapped in the form of a shadow as punishment for some wrongdoing. If anything can release a demon trapped in shadow form, only the dukes, princes, and lords of the Abyss know such secrets. As a result of their new form, shadow demons are malign and evil, destroying all life they encounter.
A shadow demon lurks in dark places, waiting for its prey to pass nearby. Often before leaping to attack, it uses its deeper darkness to gain the advantage. It then leaps from the shadows and attacks with its incorporeal attacks. It selects the most powerful foe in a group and uses its magic jar against it.
A shadow demon’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotic-aligned and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
