This demon looks like a malignantly shifting shadow gliding through the air. It radiates an intense aura of negative force.

“Negation is the mind's first freedom.”
-E.M. Cioran, _The Temptation to Exist_. 1956.

Useful Info

Soul eaters are moderately powerful tier-3 demons, boasting decent durability and an annoying line-of-sight draining attack. They can normally be found in Pandemonium and the Hells, but they also appear on occasion as the result of a Necromancy miscast effect. Some monsters can also summon them through the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • rN+++ turns them into boring melee attackers. If you have no negative energy resistance, however, you should try to overpower them quickly; otherwise, they may simply heal as fast as you can harm them.
