Blood fiends were abominations who fed on the blood of living creatures. Initially created in the Elemental Chaos by the ancient primordial, Haemnathuun,[3][4][5] they were just as prevalent in other planes, wherever there were creatures to provide food for them.[1]

Description[]

Blood fiends were humanoid in form, with a purple-black or reddish scaly hide, a lupine muzzle with great fangs, red eyes, and four clawed hands. Each of these hands had five razor-sharp claws extending from them, as did the feet.[1][6]

Abilities[]

Blood fiends preyed on other fiends,[7] as vampires preyed on humans. They also had the same ability to transform other creatures into their kind.[8] In order to assist them in their hunts, blood fiends could use a terror gaze that immobilized their unfortunate victim, making the feast all the easier for the blood fiend. Blood fiends themselves were immune to fear.[1]

Most wounds inflicted on them would heal in a matter of moments.[6]
