“In Sparkill buried lies that man of mark
Who brought the Obelisk to Central Park,
Redoubtable Commander H.H. Gorringe,
Whose name supplies the long-sought rhyme for ‘orange.’”
-Arthur Guiterman, “Local Note”. 1934.

Useful Info

Orange demons are melee-based tier-4 demons with reaching sting attacks that poison and weaken you. They are found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, the Evil Forest variant of Lair:5, and in the company of Amaemon. They can also be created by the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Unlike most demons, they aren't resistant to poison. Curare will slow early orange demons, while Mephitic Cloud can disable them.
  • They aren't very dangerous for even moderately well-armoured characters, but if you end up in the Abyss far too early, remembering that they can't fly might make escape a little easier. In general though, try to avoid fighting anything dangerous while weakened.


Prior to 0.13, orange demons lacked reaching and inflicted dexterity damage instead of weakness.
