Marilths have the upper body of a beautiful fey woman but have light scales around their temples and usually have glowing red eyes. Mariliths have six arms which are almost always in posession of six beautifully made blades which the marilith is constantly practices with. Below their beautiful upper torso lies a green scaled snake body roughly twentyfive feet in length.


Mariliths are found in the Abyss, typically in the arms of Balors and powerful Demon Princes.

Common Culture or Natural TraitsEdit

Mariliths are obsessed with martial skill and constantly hone their prowess at swordsmanship. Mariliths take trophies from particularly powerful foes, usually the blades of fallen enemies. When a marilith posses more than six quality blades or trophies she will hide them in a cache or later use, either in the Abyss or in the mortal world.

Mariliths are generally seen as the princesses of the Abyss. Second in power only to the Balors, Mariliths rule great stretches of abbyssal territory and sometimes serve as "queens" to Balors and Demon Princes.
