Demon Lord, Beluiri (3pp; The Temptress)

This creature appears as a bronze-skinned female standing about 6 feet tall. Its head is hairless and features four downward-curving horns jutting just above its forehead. The two lower horns are smaller than the topmost horns. A ridge of small spines runs from the creature’s brow down the center of its head and tapers off just below its shoulder blades. Its hands end in razor-sharp talons and its eyes are sapphire blue.

TACTICS

Beluiri prefers subterfuge rather than directly assaulting an opponent. She usually alters her appearance to appear as an attractive member of a potential victim’s race; once the victim is lured in, she assumes her true form and attacks. If combat goes against her, she flees, but only after summoning lesser demons to cover her escape and kill her opponents.

Treasure double standard

Beluiri is one of the many concubines of Lord Baphomet (and one of his favorites). She is known throughout the Abyss as the Temptress, for in her many disguises she has seduced countless princes, lords, and generals of the Abyss. In the end, she most often betrays those that fall victim to her wiles. She is hated for this by more than one noble or lord of the Abyss. She sometimes journeys to the Material Plane (in one of her many guises) to tempt and seduce mortals, for she knows that all mortals, in their hearts, always give in to their true desires—be it power, greed, lust, or one of many countless other sins. Beluiri rarely wears clothing, but at times when she does, she enjoys gowns and robes of gold, white, and red.
