Devils are fiends from lawful evil-aligned planes.
Many devils are surrounded by a fear aura, which they use to break up powerful groups and defeat opponents piecemeal. Devils with spell-like abilities use their illusion abilities to delude and confuse foes as much as possible. A favorite trick is to create illusory reinforcements; enemies can never be entirely sure if a threat is only a figment or real summoned devils joining the fray.
Most devils possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).
- Immunity to fire and poison.
- Resistance to acid 10 and cold 10.
- See in Darkness (Su): Some devils can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, even that created by a deeper darkness spell.
- Summon (Sp): Some devils share the ability to summon others of their kind (the success chance and type of devils summoned are noted in each monster description).
Except when otherwise noted, devils speak Infernal, Celestial, and Draconic.
