This page is about the various demonspawn monsters. For the player species, see demonspawn.

A half-mortal, half-demonic creature, with its hellish heritage asserting itself through a certain devilish cast to its features.

Demonspawn are the accursed offspring of demons and mortals, seemingly ordinary in youth, but gradually showing more and more of their infernal heritage as they grow. These beings wander the halls of Pandemonium, serving the Pandemonium lords and assaulting anyone foolish enough to invade.

Unlike their demonic brethren, demonspawn lack any guaranteed immunities; poison and torment affect them like they would any mortal being. They have occupations that enhance their deadliness. The sheer variety of demonspawn you can encounter requires you to be ready for a little bit of everything, though they are by no means the most dangerous inhabitants of Pandemonium.
