Alter Self (Su)

A cacodaemon can assume the shape of any Small or Medium humanoid as a standard action. This supernatural ability works like alter self (CL 12th), but the cacodaemon can remain in the chosen form indefinitely. It can assume a new form as a standard action or return to its own as a free action.


Environment Abyss, Gehenna, Hades, Nine Hells, or Tarterus
Organization solitary, group (2–4), or squad (5–10)
Treasure standard

The dreaded and feared cacodaemons are employed as guards and soldiers in the Oinodaemon’s palace. A select few are used as the Oinodaemon’s personal assassins and can be found wandering the planes (usually on a mission for the Oinodaemon). Cacodaemons are completely loyal to the Oinodaemon and never question their position or authority; they do not take orders from any other daemon. Even the mighty arcanadaemons hold no power over the cacodaemons.

A cacodaemon stands about 7 feet tall and weighs about 800 pounds.

Cacodaemons are relentless combatants and never back down from a fight. They often begin combat by changing forms and appearing as a race friendly to their potential opponents. Once an opponent is lured close to the cacodaemon, it changes to its natural form and attacks. Opponents are first subjected to the cacodaemon’s hold person ability and those affected are usually killed rather quickly. A cacodaemon does not hesitate to summon other daemons to its aid if needed.
