Gnoll, Giant Demon

Hunched and feral, this furred, hyena-headed humanoid stands much taller than the average human. Its eyes flash evilly in the reflected light of your lantern.

Giant demon gnolls are not a separate species of gnoll, but instead are rare gnolls born with demonic taint. Due to this taint, they are larger, stronger, and more forceful than their mundane fellow gnolls.
