Demodand, Shaggy (3pp)

The mighty shaggy demodands are the ruling class of the demodand race. No greater demodands are known to exist, though rumors lately hint at a single, powerful demodand of near-deity status. Shaggy demodands are by far the most malign, selfish, evil, and ruthless of the tripartite race of demodands. They are the nobility and upper class of demodand society and commanders of the demodand armies.

A typical shaggy demodand stands 6 feet tall and weighs about 550 pounds.

Shaggy demodands usually attack with their powerful claws and bite, though they sometimes employ weapons (morningstars or bastard swords).
