Playing an Minos Demon
Honor is valued above all. The second most important thing is destroying those that created them. This leads to a strong dislike of warlocks, necromancers, and other wielders of the dark magics. Many Minos Demons even distrust wizards, but have been known to fight alongside them. Minos Demons have a very strong, dictating code, involving the life debt.

Minos Demon Adventurers
Aktag is a barbarian, a savage warrior on the battlefields of the infinite devil wars. However, a group of adventurers from the Material Plane summoned him, originally intending to use his like any other demon. Once they discovered his incredible strength in battle, they soon freed him to join their team. Aktag still misses killing demons, but find that some of the mortal races make the most interesting sounds on death...
Yeva was a paladin of Vecna, never giving a thought to disobedience. Up until the day a team of heroes devoted to Pelor came to ransack her temple. She was knocked unconscious by a dwarf, but found herself being healed afterwards and was offered a new life in the sun. Sure, the cults of Vecna now hound her with accusation of destroying their temple, but she can handle them.
Zantor is a fighter and master with his weapons. He believes that a true weapon master is an expert with every weapon, and has frequently went into the world to hunt down tribes with unique weapons, so that he may force tutelage from them before demonstrating his prowess on his former masters. Despite this philosophy, he constantly carries a large flail on his person, believing the chaos of the swinging chain reflects the chaos of his home. His actions have carved him a small empire among the hells, one that he hopes to expand on day, rising to challenge the very Lord of Hell himself.
