The Demon Lords have plagued Ahlim for thousands of years, gathering monsters and malcontents to their cause. Sometimes they disappear for centuries at a time, but they always return to wreak havoc in Ahlim. Their followers are secretive and often live on the fringes of society. Rogues, Clerics, Warlocks, and wizards commonly worship the Demonlords. There are seven commonly recognised, each associated with a deadly sin.
The Master of Death and Undeath, they are said to be the most powerful Demonlord. They are known as Orcus and their realm has supposedly been taken from them by Lady Midnight.
The master of Gnolls and Were-beasts, his creations are amongst the most commonplace on Ahlim. He is known as Yeenoghu, and has the alliance of someone known as The Red Woman, as well as Imix.
The Giver of Ecstasy and Stealer of Souls, a devious corruptor. He is known as Graz’zt and has the alliance of a fallen Angel of Meridar, Rakshasa.
The Lord of Defilement, he twists minds and bodies to his will. He is known as Demogorgon and is rallying other demons to his cause far to the north.
The Lady of Fungi, she revels in entropy and decay. She is known as Zuggtmoy and her realm is supposedly under the control of Lady Midnight.
The Devourer is unfamiliar to most but is associated with destruction and dark secrets. He is known as Jubilex and is sworn to Demogorgon.
The Silent One is unfamiliar to most but is associated with enlightenment and dark secrets. She is known as Belphegor and dwells in the Ethereal Plane, seeking balance.
