A long time ago, all creatures spoke the same tongue and worshipped a single deity. Over time, man and beasts developed different tongues and then this deity was forgotten by almost everyone. The human shaman who still make sacrifices to it do so secretly, and the the beasts that still call it their master withdrew to a parallel realm. One of these beasts is called the black river demon, though that is not its true name. Those who know its true name can summon the demon and send it out to hunt and kill. Outside its realm, the black river demon has an unsteady form and appears to be part man-like creature and part reptile. Its surrounded by green and blue flames that burns cold and doesn't shed light, and has long sharp talons.

From "Beyond the Black River", Robert E. Howard, 1935
