Soul eaters are outsiders native to Abaddon capable of eating a victim's soul.[1][2]

Appearance

A soul eater is a cloud of inky smoke with spindly arms that end in taloned fingers. They silently slither through the air like a serpent.[1][2]

Abilities

A soul eater's touch can impair its victim's consciousness. When summoned to the Material Plane by a conjurer, it can find any target its summoner has seen and can name aloud regardless of its location or distance—with the exception of running water.[1][2]

If a soul eater destroys a victim's consciousness with its claws, it can consume the victim's soul. This kills the victim, prohibits reincarnation, and complicates most simple forms of resurrection.[1][2]

Ecology

While native to the daemonic plane of Abaddon, soul eaters are popular creatures to conjure among evil spellcasters. When not serving a master, soul eaters—devoid of emotion or reason—perpetually hunt for souls to consume.[2]

Known examples

The oculus of Abaddon can summon soul eaters.[3]
