About

This jolly aspect of the Demon Prince Orcus was crafted in the deepest pits of the Abyss by taking a single shaving from one of the Prince of the Undead’s claws and freezing it in the coldest part of the Under Realms while enchanting it with vile magic. The creature that spewed forth, known as Orcus’ Claws, is but a fragment of its progenitor’s essence, yet it continues to grow ever stronger. Orcus’ Claws is a corpulent beast standing seven feet tall and wearing a bloody mantle and stocking cap.
