"As my connection to my lord deepens, I leave my old concerns behind. His hunger is all that matters. It is greater than me; it is greater than us all. It is His mark. He made us. He drives us. He eats what we eat. He kills what we kill. He will come if we eat well. He will come if we kill well. He will come if we eat well. He will come if we kill well. We will kill and He will eat, and we shall be He and He shall be we, never alone, never afraid, never hungry."

―A cultist of Yeenoghu's mad ramblings[1]

Yeenoghu (pronounced: /jiˈnɑːghyee-NAG-hoo[12] Loudspeaker listen) was the demon prince and lord of savagery, and the chief being worshiped by gnolls.[2]

PossessionsEdit

Yeenoghu wielded the three-headed magical flail the Butcher in battle.[9]

ActivitiesEdit

The tanar'ri lord's only known worshipers were gnolls and flinds.[9] Clerics of Yeenoghu had access to the domains of Bestial,[6] Chaos, Demonic, Evil, and Fury.[2]

RelationshipsEdit

Yeenoghu was the patron of all gnolls, having earlier displaced Gorellik, and commanded the servitude of ghouls through the subjugation of the demonic King of Ghouls, Doresain, a former ally of Orcus, who failed to strike back at Yeenoghu for the acquisition of one of his subjects. Yeenoghu had a continuous feud with Baphomet, and both demons pulled no punches when dealing with one another. The fight lasted so long that neither demon lord could remember what originally started the battle. Along with Baphomet, Yeenoghu loathed Malcanthet, the queen of the succubus, because the Queen destroyed a number of Yeenoghu's material plane cultists, the Maure Family.[2]

AppendixEdit

NotesEdit

  1. Yeenoghu's challenge rating was lowered from 22 to 20 by Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss.
