Flinds were humanoid creatures related to gnolls.[5] They were particularly strong and vicious gnolls that would command their war band. While flinds were admired and respected by their lesser cousins, there was no love in the end for the superior breed. If not found in a leadership role over other gnolls, flinds often wound up as solitary hunters.[6]

Description[edit | edit source]

A flind was similar in appearance to a gnoll, being a bit shorter and broader in stature. A typical flind would would stand 7 feet (2.1 meters) tall and weight about 300​ to ​350 pounds (140​ to ​160 kilograms). Aside from the size difference, flinds had less of a slope in their skull structure and their ears were more rounded.[6]

Culture[edit | edit source]

Although Yeenoghu was the demon prince primarily worshiped by gnoll-kind, many flind clerics would worship Erythnul the god of slaughter.[6]

They led their war bands into battle wielding flails imbued with magic by Yeenoghu himself.[1] If a gnoll killed a flind, the gnoll would be transformed into a flind itself.[1]
