Vrocks are large, vulture-headed demons.[1] They are also known as vulture demons or wrath demons.[2]

Associated Sin

Wrath.[3]

Appearance

A vrock resembles a twisted combination of humanoid and vulture. A typical specimen is 8 feet in height and 400 pounds in weight.[1]

Habitat & Society

They are created in the Abyss from the souls of hateful and angry mortals, such as criminals and mercenaries. They enjoy killing. They can be found in gangs of up to ten individuals.[1]

Vrocks worship the demon lord Pazuzu, patron of evil flying creatures.[4]

Abilities

A vrock engaged in battle

Vrocks fight in melee using their vicious beaks, front claws and also rear talons. The screech of a vrock can briefly stun its victims.

They can also release clouds of spores, which have the unusual property of embedding themselves in surrounding creatures and almost instantly sprouting into ugly green vines. The process is painful and potentially fatal to weaker creatures.

The dance of a vrock, if maintained for eighteen seconds, can generate a wave of lightning which electrocutes all creatures within 100 feet. If up to four vrocks dance simultaneously, the force of the blast increases accordingly.[1]

Environment

Vrocks inhabit the Abyss.[1]
