The “hell hound” is an extraplanar creature that resembles a mortal canine. However, this is where the resemblance of hell hounds stops. These creatures are entirely evil, possessed of a cunning intelligence that drives them to stalk and hunt mortals for pleasure.

Nessian warhounds are massive hellhounds bred specifically by the archdevils of the Nine Hells to serve as their loyal guards and pets. A mortal in possession of one or more of these beasts has the favor of a powerful arch-fiend.
