Quasits (pronounced: /ˈkwɑːzɪtzKWA-zitz[6]) were chaotic evil outsiders.[4]


Standing around 1.5 feet in height and weighing around 8 pounds, they resembled tiny humanoids with spiky horns and bat wings.[4]


They could be summoned to become the familiars of wizards and sorcerers who matched their chaotic evil alignment, or were at least not lawful or good.[7] Necromancers of sufficient experience could cast a variant of the find familiar spell and possibly get a quasit.[8]


The quasit struck from ambush and used shapeshifting and invisibility to enter combat at the best moment to administer its poison.[4]
