A tomb demon was a type of demon found within the Abyss. Tomb demons were the result of the power of the Abyss on mass graves, and often represented the horrible joining of a humanoid and snake, all with bone. Tomb demons first came to be after a battle between Orcus and Sylbarax, who was once an exarch of Zehir. Orcus used his necromantic powers to raise the dead followers of Sylbarax, thus creating the tomb demons.[1]


Tomb demons were able to constrict their foes within their bony grip and often made use of conventional weapons as well.[1]


Tomb demons sought to constrict their weaker or less armored opponents first, opting to ignore other, potentially more dangerous threats.[1]
