A powerful, belligerent efreet. (Is there any other kind?)

“And Allah said,
‘As thou the deed hast done, so now the office shall be thine, O Azrael,
to gather up for me the souls of men and women when their time has come;
the souls of saints and sinners, of beggars and of princes,
of the old or young, whate’er befall; and even though friends weep,
and hearts of loved ones ache with sorrow and with anguish,
when bereft of those they love.’
So Azrael became the messenger of Death.”

-J. E. Hanauer, _Folk-lore of the Holy Land, Moslem, Christian and Jewish_. 1907.

Useful Info

Azrael the Boundless Flame is a unique efreet, often accompanied by several hell hounds and fire elementals. Like all efreets, he comes armed with a flaming scimitar, but he's much happier hitting you with his wide variety of Fire Magic and damnation spells instead.

Tips & Tricks

  • Fire resistance defends against most of his spells and melee, but nothing will protect you from damnation.
  • His allies are immune to fire, so he can fire bolts through them.
    • However, the allies are not immune to damnation. Standing next to a hell hound or elemental will prevent him from using either damnation attack.
  • Take note of what Azrael is and isn't vulnerable to:
    • As a demon, Azrael is immune to silence.
    • He can't see invisible, so going invisible will greatly reduce the number of spells that hit you.
    • His willpower is low for such a strong unique. A wand of polymorph is likely to create a weak demon; the usual Hexes and hex wands also work well.
    • He is vulnerable to cold, so Ice Magic or a wand of iceblast can deal decent damage quickly; this has the added benefit of tearing through his allies in short order.
