2E [2e] Monster Mythology Update Project

Legend
Powerful enough to claim the title of Prince of Demons, Demogorgon is a foul lord of of the Abyss who has achieved true divinity. Favoring the intelligent shallow-water rays known as ixitxachitl, he focuses on domination and the draining of life energy from victims in order to increase his own power.

Jeff
Thank you as always for the hard work. Demogorgon is one of my favorite creatures in all of D&D. I do have one question about the avatar though: why not go with the 200hp in the Monster Manual (1e at least)?

Avatar hit points are determined by Class hit dice and Constitution, so I was following that; if his avatar is less powerful than his earlier true manifestation, well, that's a tradeoff for becoing a deity, with the advantage that an avatar's loss doesn't do much to him other than take time to reform. Besides, some of the deity and unique creature stats in 1e are really, really inflated, IMO. :)

Thank you for the clarification - I wasn't aware that was how the avatar hit points where determined.

Eshebala the Vixen Queen

As Queen of the Foxwomen, Eshebala the Vixen Queen embodies the same vain and shallow obsession with beauty and material wealth found in that lycanthropic race. She has a decidedly cruel streak as well, and seeks to destroy things and creatures she has n further use for, or that which she cannot acquire.

Damh the Horned Beast

Child of Titania and Oberon, Damh the Horned Beast (pronounced DAV) is the revelrous patron of satyrs and korred. Despite his love for wine, women, and song, he is the physically strongest member of the Seelie Court, and the first to come to defense of sylvan lands.

Daragor the Wolflord

The bloodthirsty and rapacious patron of werewolves and seawolves, Daragor the Wolflord is a wanderer who delights in nothing but sating his bloodlust. While he wanders the Lower Planes butchering the fiends and travelers he finds there, he sends his avatars to do the same on the Prime Material Plane.

Naharra the Mother-Mare is the final member of the small centaur pantheon mentioned in Dragon Magazine #105, and rounds out the family group that serves Skerrit. She is the centaur deity of lover, motherhood, and fertility, and as a deity of family, represents the ancestor spirits that many centaur shamans contact for advice.

The smallest member of the Seelie Court is Caoimhin the Kindly (KOO-ev-inn), patron of the little killmoulis. He is a timid and grumbly deity who is keenly aware of his own weaknesses, but has an inner strength where his friends and allies are concerned.

Sibling to Balador, Ferrix the Prowler is a playful and inquisitive deity, and patron of the weretigers. She is a huntress, but gets a greater thrill from the hunt than the kill. She likes to explore and learn, but unlike her brother, she has not the wisdom to differentiate mundane and trivial knowledge.

One of the most famous centaurs, Kheiron the Educator is the offspring of the Titan Cronus, but does not share his disposition towards the Olympians. As such, he is included in both that human pantheon and the centaur pantheon, and has branches of his clergy among both races. Throughout his history, he has taken special interest in educating would-be heroes, and his mythology includes many long lists of the heroes he has educated.

While one of Io’s Children, Nathair Sgiathach the Prankster (NEIGH-er SKEY-ak) feels more at home among the small folk of the Seelie Court, and is patron of faerie dragons and pseudodragons. His power is a valuable aid in protecting fairy folk, but unfortunately his irreverent attitude makes for a less valuable advisor to Titania, Queen of the Fairies.

I don't think he's actually drawn from Irish mythology, I thnk his name is just Irish Gaelic. Most of the Seelie Court deities are like that. :)

The Great Mother of the beholders is a bizarre being of contradictions. It is a chaotic entity where its spawn are lawful, and while it is the source of beholders’ power, it is also the ultimate origin of all the different breeds of beholder and kin, and thus at least partially responsible for their xenophobic internal wars.

Diirinka the Betrayer is the treacherous and cruel patron of the degenerate dwarves known as derro. Exiled from the Morndinsamman for his crimes against his brother and mortal dwarves, he hides in Pandemonium, paranoid that his enemies, especially the illithid god Ilsensine, will find and destroy him.

One of the outer circle members of the Seelie Court, Emmantiensien the Treant-King is still an important member of the Court. He forgets nothing, making him an excellent sage, and he guards a powerful ancient magical crystal that grants him and the Court substantial powers.
