Dretch (4e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Dretch are pathetic, bottom-of-the heap demons. They spend their time tormenting visitors to the Abyss, bullying manes, or squabbling amongst themselves.
 Dretch Tactics
Dretch fall over each other to mob any single opponent; even if their claws are ineffective, their stinking cloud can defeat an enemy through attrition. Stupid and ineffective, they sometimes simply move to random places on the battlefield. A lone dretch will run to the nearest powerful demon for protection, although it is likely to be either swatted to one side or eaten.
