Devils are the legions of fallen angels that come from the infernal realm known as Hell. These diabolic fiends seek to manipulate and dominate mortal creatures in their long-term goal to rule the cosmos. Devils corrupt mortal souls and drag them down to Hell where they are transformed into more devils to serve in their constant battle against the forces of Heaven.

Devils have a highly structured and organized society. Every devil knows its place in the hierarchy of Hell. The higher-ranking devils not only have greater infernal abilities and are more physically powerful, but are also more cunning in what evil they perform.

Devils believe in following the rules. They will often bend the rules in a manner suitable to their needs, but they will never outright break any rules. Nor will they break their word, once given. A devil will speak in half-truths and cunningly-worded phrases, but when they say they will so something, they will do exactly that.

Devils react coolly, rationally, and in a calculated manner. They do not tend to act emotionally, but the stories of infernal rages are well known to cause great destruction. They delight in inflicting misery on others as a means of crushing the will of a mortal and eventually gaining access to the mortal soul.

Bone devils serve as taskmasters and interrogators of the devils. They act as law-enforcement throughout Hell, leading many devils to fear their presence. Bone devils delight in torturing mortals and devils alike, causing physical and mental suffering wherever they go.

Bone devils appear to be skeletal humanoid monsters with a long, lashing tail ending in a deadly venomous stinger. They stand over 9 feet tall and weigh over 400 pounds (40 bulk). Some bone devils have wings, although they do not need them for flight.
