Habitat and society

Unlike most demons, quasits are not formed in the Outer Rifts from the souls of dead mortals. Instead, it is created when an evil spellcaster seeks one as a familiar. The Outer Rifts answers the request by forming a quasit linked to the spellcaster, which then appears directly on the Material Plane.2

Quasits who serve as familiars have no society of their own, and serve at the whim of their masters. When the master dies, the quasit has the opportunity to try and seize its master's soul, transform it into a larvae, and take it to the Outer Rifts. The quasit can then try to barter the larvae as the first step on the quasit's endless quest for advancement in the demonic ranks.[citation needed]

"Free" quasits can sometimes join flocks of up to a dozen individuals.1[citation needed]


The quasit is possibly the weakest of the demons, but it is a versatile creature. It can fight with its small claws and teeth, and its claws are poisonous. It can also transform itself into a bat, centipede, toad or wolf, and make itself invisible at will.[citation needed]

Perhaps its most useful ability, at least for the master of a quasit familiar, is that it can ask six questions each week to the fiendish powers. Of course, the correct answer is not guaranteed; even the Outer Rifts do not know everything.1[citation needed]


Quasit familiars appear in Golarion wherever there are reckless and unscrupulous spellcasters willing to risk trafficking with demons.[citation needed]

"Free" quasits are usually encountered in the Outer Rifts.1 However, those who fail to capture their master's soul are forced to remain in the Universe;2 and some choose to remain there. In such cases they delight in tormenting mortals, so are typically found in urban areas where there are more targets to choose from.1[citation needed]
