An abyssal wurm was a type of demon found within the Abyss. Abyssal wurms often guarded passages out of the deepest and darkest parts of the Abyss, and even some demon lords steered clear of the areas around their nests. Abyssal wurms were the children of Tiamat and Kothok, and it was Kothok who brought them to the Abyss.[1]


The abyssal wurms made use of their gnashing teeth and sheer size in battle and, on top of that, also had a breath weapon they employed.[1]


Abyssal wurms sometimes toyed with weaker prey before moving in to kill. Wurms relied on their size and, if the need arose, they most often retreated from combat through the very gates and passages they guarded.[1]
