TACTICS

An amaimon ruthlessly attacks any creatures it encounters. It begins combat with its breath weapon seeking to engulf as many of its opponents within the area as possible. It always enters combat against good-aligned foes with its protection from good in effect raking with its claws and gnashing with its bite. If the battle turns against the amaimon it summons a horde of lemures or another amaimon to its aid.

Amaimons are wicked and cruel diabolic creatures that take great pleasure in the torture and slaying of other creatures. For this, they are often found serving as inquisitors and “information extractors” under the various dukes of Hell. Their methods of torture vary from amaimon to amaimon but include both standard torture methods (racks, screws, weights) and exotic torture methods (capturing their fiery poisonous breath weapon in vials and injecting it into the bloodstream of a living creature, for example). Amaimons care little for other creatures, including their own kind. They are completely self-absorbed, selfish, and evil.

An amaimon stands about 9 feet tall and weighs about 700 pounds.
