Demons are a thriving society of cruelty and pleasure, led by the Archdemon, who is an emissary of Azk’Hurum.
The Empress has struck deals with several Archdemons to fight on her side. In return, the demons are free to harvest the souls, blood, and flesh of anyone they kill in the many battles promised them under the Imperial expansion plans.
Anyone is welcome to become a worker for the Demons. Lured by a never-ending cavalcade of pain and pleasure, the only price is gold and some of your blood. Those selected for military service are killed and their souls harvested, except for those whose fate is to become Hellhounds. They are simply quartered and the four pieces moulded with blood and magic into what tales of terror are about.
