Zevgavizeb (pronounced zev-GAV-ah-zeb)[1] is the demon lord worshiped by the troglodytes of Golarion. His unholy symbol is a set of twisted tentacles that end in vicious talons.[citation needed]

History

Zevgavizeb is a degree older than most other demons, for he once was one of the original natives of the Abyss, a qlippoth.[2] Whether this is the reason behind his seeming disinterest in the rest of the Great Beyond, like foul Dagon, is open to speculation.[3][4]

Home

Zevgavizeb cares little for his mortal adherents making his home in the Abyssal realm of Gluttondark. He shows no interest in the rest of the universe, instead his prime interest is in feeding his immense hunger when he emerges from his long hibernations. As a result, he is perhaps the demon lord providing the least danger to Golarion.[4][5]

Appearance

Zevgavizeb is a truly hideous monster even by Abyssal standards, which is full of monsters: he is the size of a dragon, but does not share his troglodyte followers' form, instead he is part reptile, part bat, and part overgrown worm.[4][2]

Cult and worshipers

Zevgavizeb's troglodyte worshipers live in mortal terror of his hunger, sacrificing countless victims to appease him.[4][2] Because he cares little for his flock, the worship of Zevgavizeb is generally disorganized and only consists of superstitious traditions, crude rock drawings, and ancient tales told over cold meals in the dark. The deadliest of these troglodytes dwell in Deep Tolguth, are little changed from their psychically mighty ancestors, and rule their realm from a stone city at the heart of Orv. Unlike their surface-dwelling kin, they can still recall their racial name: xulgath.[6][5]

Although Zevgavizeb is known primarily as the patron of the troglodyte race, he is also worshiped by debased tribes of lizardfolk, morlocks, and saurians. His saurian followers primarily wage war against other saurians, and their talent for training dinosaurs for war is unparalleled. The combination of internal power struggles, and constant opposition from other saurians that view them as abhorrent degenerates, has kept them isolated.[5]
