BLACK ABISHAI
An abishai is one of the least forms of the baatezu, a race of lawful fiends that seeks to impose cruel tyranny on the face of evil. A black abishai is the lowest of the abishai, ranking below the green and the red forms. They are the infantrymen and skirmishers of the Blood War; they are malicious and compared to the rest of the baatezu race, not terribly clever.

CORNUGON
One of the highest-ranking levels of baatezu in all Baator, cornugons are those who have ascended through the ranks of their fellows by way of countless generations of betrayal, self-sacrifice, deception, and all manner of vices. Covered with tiny horns, wearing a huge pair of wings, and heavily-muscled, they look like stupid creatures and often play on that to their advantage - they are, in fact, deeply intelligent creatures, and there's no telling how deep their schemes might run.

CRANIUM RAT
Individually, cranium rats are little more than your ordinary garbage rats with the slight addition of pulsing, exposed brains on their skulls. Get them in a group, though, and they become much more dangerous - their proximity to other cranium rats creates a hive mind that grows more powerful with the addition of every rat. Their intelligence can rapidly increase to godlike level, and they gain spells and other fearsome mental abilities - and it's only by slaying numerous individual rats that you can weaken the hive mind. Best to avoid them, if at all possible.

An abishai is one of the least forms of the baatezu, a race of lawful fiends that seeks to impose cruel tyranny on the face of evil.

They are the infantrymen and skirmishers of the Blood War; they are malicious and compared to the rest of the baatezu race, not terribly clever. The red abishai is one step down from promotion to a higher form of baatezu.

GEHRELETH
Gehreleths are the outcast fiends of the planes, savage fighters who create themselves from the bodies of the dead that litter Carceri's spheres. They're universally feared and despised, and for good reason. Best to stay away from them - if you can't do that, make sure you've got a weapon that'll drive them off.

EVIL WIZARD CONSTRUCT
Somehow this drone achieved sentience and overthrew the modron in charge. Before it could lay any serious plans, though, the failsafe of the modron cube kicked in and placed the drone into stasis. Now you've activated it again. Good for you.

GHOUL, FEMALE
The walking dead come in many shapes and sized. This particular shape and size is that of a carrion eater, a thing that survives by eating the flesh and bones of the living and dead alike.

Of all the tanar'ri - demonic fiends that inhabit the Abyss of chaos and evil - few are as cunning as the doglike glabrezu. These are the chosen tempters of mortal minds, offering power and knowledge beyond the ken of even the most knowledgeable. Of course, this knowledge comes with a price. They're also brutal warriors, among the most dangerous creatures you have encountered. Tread carefully, both in body and mind.
