Behavior and ecology
Chortovs are created from unwilling residents of Hell, be they innocent sacrifices in diabolical rites, trapped travelers, or evil souls destined for torment elsewhere. Over time, these souls become twisted and focused into personifications of rage, hatred, and violence. These fiends corrupt all fire near them into hellfire and explode destructively if slain, and creatures they injure can be infected with their own aimless wrath.
