Now you see me. As a bonus action on his turn Asmodeus can teleport anywhere within his line of sight or in the nine hells.


The Asmodeus can take 5 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn.

The Mouth remains open for 3 rounds. A Hell's Mouth appears as a great, diabolically evil human male face with jagged, chewing teeth. Flames burst from the gaping maw as it attempts to suck in unlucky victims. The gate is two way and remains open for five rounds (suction only during first round).

Contract established (Costs 1 action). Asmodeus on touching a humanoid or a piece of dead humanoid calls its soul back and forms a new adult body for the soul to enter. If the target isn’t willing to do so the spell fails. The body that is formed for the soul is a Tiefling’s body. The soul retains all it’s memories and experiences and is friendly towards Asmodeus (his memories are altered such that it obeys Asmodeus).

Christopher Moeller

Asmodeus is the strongest, most cunning, and most handsome of all devils. (1) He is physically stronger than any other devil (as strong as a storm giant) and the most cunning and artful.He is typically described as appearing as a giant human, over 13 feet tall, with dark skin and hair, red eyes, handsome features, and small horns on his forehead. He dresses in regal finery of unimaginable expense; a single article of clothing worn by Asmodeus is worth more money than an average nation will spend on food in a year. Beneath his clothing, Asmodeus' body is covered in bloody wounds which he sustained when he fell from the Upper Planes. His wounds ooze blood daily, and any drop of blood which touches the ground grows into a powerful devil. He is described as a "calm, chillingly reasonable" being with a modest appearance that hides his true power. (1) 1st Ed AD&D page 20
