“As we grow old, we become aware that death is drawing near; his shadow falls across our path...”
Shadow demons are demonic summoners which haunt demonic places, summoning waves of dangerous foes at you as soon as they spot you. They're faster than normal, but thankfully aren't very durable by tier-2 standards. They can be found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells (particularly in Tartarus).

Tips & Tricks
- Without Aura of Abjuration, these guys can theoretically put together truly horrific piles of demons to assault you. Fortunately they spend most of their turns trying to move into melee range with you. Make them a high priority to keep them from calling for reinforcements, and if they do manage to get some nasties out, use powerful ranged attacks to take them down fast. Once the summoner falls, its summons die with it.
Prior to 0.10, shadow demons had permanent invisibility and normal speed, but no spells.
