TACTICS

Nupperibos unerringly follow the orders of their commander. They are relentless in their pursuit and attack, and continue to assault anything in their path until ordered to stop by their commander. A nupperibo killed in battle is 99% likely to be reformed (by a duke or arch-devil) into another nupperibo; the remaining 1% are “promoted” to lemure status, having proved their worth in combat.

Those evil souls that are taken to Hell and processed to become lemures but fail ultimately become nupperibo: a life-form even more disgusting and sad than the lowly lemure. Nupperibos are gathered by the dukes and arch-devils and used as fodder in their never-ending wars. A typical nupperibo army consists of thousands of these creatures.

Nupperibo stands 5 feet tall and weigh about 100 pounds.
