Grant Hidden Desire (Su)

Once per month, a glabrezu can grant a mortal humanoid the effects of a miracle (as the spell) granted by an demonic patron.

The glabrezu will always attempt to twist and pervert the miracle, due to its fiendish nature.


Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary or troop (1 glabrezu, 1 succubus, and 2-5 vrocks)

Demons are fiends that originate from a terrifying realm known as the Abyss. It is a place of pure chaos and pure evil, where a constant war is waged to destroy all of creation. Every living creature… every city… every plant… every standing mountain… entire worlds, if possible, are the ideal target of destruction for a demon.

Demons exist solely to destroy everything they see. While their fiendish counterparts – the devils – seek to manipulate mortal minds and souls, demons desire only to annihilate them. They feed off suffering, mayhem, ruin, and conflict.

Unlike devils, who were once either fallen angels from Heaven or mortals that have had their souls corrupted into a fiendish form, demons are beings created from pure chaos. They are spawned by the foul corruption of the Abyss; an infinite realm of cruelty and depravity. Whenever great death and destruction occurs in the mortal realms, demons begin spawning in ever greater numbers in the Abyss; the wake of destruction seems to call these fiends into existence.

The many different demonic realms of the Abyss are uninhabitable by mortal standards. The rivers and seas are made of acid. The air is poisonous to breathe. Even the land and its plant life seek to devour any unfortunate enough to not watch their step. Demons are properly suited to exist in an environment such as this.

A glabrezu is a demon that delights to tempt mortals into taking on destructive power. They corrupt innocence by granting powers to others, knowing that they will cause suffering and ruin. They use lies and deception to destroy the lives of all whom these demons meet.

Glabrezu appear to be massive demons with the heads of a horned canine. They have two pairs of arms; one is humanoid ending in hands, while the others are monstrous ending in a pair of crab-like pincers. A glabrezu stands 15 feet tall and weighs 5,500 pounds (550 bulk).
