A vermlek, or worm demon, is a type of minor demon, ranking slightly higher than the dretch. When not in possession of a host form, a vermlek resembles a 7-foot-long, four-tailed worm, and weighs about 90 pounds.[1]

Appearance

Vermleks resemble larger, pinkish worms with four long tails that end in writhing fibers. A vermlek's mouth consist of four segments lined with rows of many pointed teeth, which open in a flower-like shape.[2]

Associated sin

Violation of the dead, such as grave-robbing and necromancy.[3]

Ecology

Vermleks rarely move in their exposed natural forms, instead preferring to burrow into the bodies of deceased humanoids. A vermlek can animate and control these bodies, and will attempt to use this disguise to infiltrate mortal settlements and influence the behavior of those who knew their bodies' living owners. A vermlek is occasionally able to achieve a position of authority in this form, with disastrous consequences for the community it takes control of.[2]
