For the NPC, see Fiend (NPC).

The fiends are a demonic race that are notable for having a face on their chest, six horns coming out of their cylindrical head, a mouth full of large jagged teeth which almost completely circle their head, a small goatee, and a diamond shaped jewel lodged in their forehead. They also have spines coming out of the back part of their hooves and hands.

The name "fiend" is based on NPC names as no other name is known.


Fiends have wings and cloven feet with a general build to that of daemons and ered'ruin — which may imply that they are a subspecies of the ered'ruin species. Some fiends also hold the rank of doomguard, such as the fiend known as Overmaster Grindgarr, which may also prove to be a connection to the ered'ruin.
