An obyrith was a type of demon. It was so ancient it predated mortal life, and even the gods.[2] They rarely had a humanoid shape, and some said that just looking at an obyrith could drive a mortal insane. Some obyrith lords had evolved over time to take on more recognizable shapes, such as Pazuzu or Pale Night.[citation needed]


Notable ObyrithsEdit

Only twelve obyrith lords survived to modern times. They were survivors of the destruction of their reality and the wars that followed the creation of the Abyss:[citation needed]
