Greater Hellhound[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

You see a creature looming above you. Her body is oddly aluring. Her fur black as night, her skin darker then a drow. Her eyes seem to glow like fire the more you stare. Her tail, soft and covered in hair, wags as she looks at you, her claws already around you. The fur is soft and some patches seem to have red tips at the ends of them, you realize, it's just you and her. You are hers now.


Greater hellhounds were an accident. Being created when a succubus had a child with a hellhound. The baby was oddly adorable to the succubus, so she kept it. Soon other succubi and inccubi learned of the cute furred children, so they decided to make more greater hellhounds, making a great number of them to the point the greater hellhounds started to get out to the material plane in large numbers. Greater hellhounds are a very feared and sometimes loved race of fiends as they particularly enjoy taking those of other races and forcing them to make more children. Some do manage to hold the urge and live normally in a town or city, but a vast majority love to do the most evil thing worse than murder, forcing themselves on their victim, rape. If you can make a friend with a greater hellhound, you have someone who will burn cities for you. If you find love in them they will want many children from you and will be very loyal.


Greater hellhounds usually live alone or with their parents. They often leave thier parents when they reach 25. When they are alone they usually live in caves, kidnapping a man or woman for themselves, turning these victims into what they perceive to be a mate. Often the mate will fall in love back, this is possibly due to the succubus/incubus heritage. When with a parent, that parent could either be a succubus, incubus, or a mother/father greater hellhound and another race of the opposite gender usually in a small town to a somewhat large city. Rarely would someone find one alone in a city. If the mate can calm the greater hellhound, there is a chance they'll agree to living in a large city with the mate

Hellhound Names[edit]

Greater hellhounds share names with mostly their succubi and inccubi ancestors. Sometimes different names could be made such as the ones below

Male: Brim, Icarron, Flame, Pehker, Maize, Rush.

Female: Yeltania, Rose, Balze, Rapanna, Vageira, Cinder.

These names can be seen as innuendos, this is because of how lewd and loudly inappropriate the greater hellhounds are.
