Retrievers are the most famous of the constructs fashioned by the demon lord Haagenti from the quintessence of the Outer Rifts.12


A retriever resembles a spider the size of an elephant, and its leg-span is nearly 30 feet. It weighs 6,500 pounds. Its eyes shimmer with magical energy and can unleash potent eye beams.3[citation needed]


Retrievers seek servants who abandon their loyalties or flee from servitude from their demon lord master. A retriever's presence is often enough to ensure the loyalty of lesser demons. Retrievers are just smart enough to excellently track down specific objects and return them to their masters, but not to think of freedom and rebellion. Although a retriever is not an outsider, it can nonetheless be conjured as if it were one.3[citation needed]

Retrievers can also be modified. For example, Deskari crafted retrievers of the Eternal Hive with shed shells of a demon beetle.4
