Powers and Abilities

Fiends are swift, agile beasts with terrible rending claws.


These savage beasts are the result of mystical experimentation by Shub-Niggurath. As such, they are ubiquitous throughout Shub-Niggurath’s realms.


Fiends are hunchbacked, hairless humanoids with lithe, elongated limbs ending in wicked scythe-like talons. They have a deceptively swift loping gait.

A wicked maw looking like the smile on a death’s head dominates the eyeless faces.

DC Universe History

Any malevolent mystical entity could seize control of a S.T.A.R. Labs teleportation experiment. These beats would haunt the invader’s dimension in great numbers, posing a great threat to unwary PCs.
