Named demons

BOZ

Creature Cataloguer
going for another compilation thread...

i'm looking for any "named" demons appearing in any TSR/WotC product ever, whether statted or not.
that is, if Bob the Balor appeared in an issue of Dragon, and Susy the Succubus appeared in a module, i want to know about them and where they appeared. it can be a powerful unique demon, or it can be a lowly lesser demon performing a menial task. it can even be a demonic creature that wasn't necessarily one of the known demon types.

to clarify: i am not looking for types of demons, i am looking for proper names (i.e., capitalized) of individuals.

roll call! ;)

Oh good lord.

You've just opened the floodgates. It might be better to limit your catalogue to specific, unique demons, or at least cap the list at nalfeshnee or something. Otherwise, well, let's just say there have been a LOT.

too much chaff for the wheat? ;) don't know how useful such things would be to your project, but i figure better to have it than not have it. :)

Way, way, way back Dragon Magazine had a two-issue special on the Nine hells that our DM took to heart.

We defeated a minor demon lord named Amduscias I think

if Bob the Balor appeared in an issue of Dragon
Ebonbane, a nalfeshnee demon trapped in a sword in the Dungeon adventure "Bane of the Shadowborn." Ravenloft darklord, originates from the Great Kingdom in Greyhawk, apparently:
Ok actually Ebonbane is already trapped in the sword when he kills Lady Shadowborn. Alexi destroys the sword and takes ebonbane into his own body due to the nature of the lode paladin and so instead of being imprisoned in the sword the darklord is now imprisoned in Alexi! by the way, there was additional fiction on this in one of the kargatane book of S_'s. It was a great pic of work in my opinion. Does anyone know if it counts as canon with SS. I think it is a great premise.

Ebonbane is a demon from the lower planes (A Balor I think) and he was summoned to the Great Kingdom. Now we don't know anything about this Kingdom. I don't think it's from Krynn though, I think that like Barovia it's just a nameless prime material world from which the Mists drew Darklords. Three darklords come from the Great Kingdom: Ebonbane (Shadowborn Manor), Morgoroth (spelling???) (Avonleigh) and Elena Faith-Hold (Nidala)

Ebonbane is revealed in Shadowborn to be a Nalfneshnee, actually.

MM 1e has a bunch of references to individual demon and devil names in the entries, many of the devils come straight from Dante I believe so they are Italian names.

You know, this would be an awesome project for a wiki. How hard would it be to get one set up ?

He was a dretch, right?

I think there was a nalfeshnee in there as well who used to be a name in Greyhawk (one of the artefacts in the 1e DMG had his name).
