She loved nothing, but witnessing the chaos and blood-shed that resulted from her well-devised tactics. That is, until that marilith saw the brave and bloodthirsty barbarian human that sought only war. They came for battle, but ended in copulation.

Physical Description[edit]

A half-marilith looks mostly like their demonic parent in that they have a human-like torso with extra arms and a serpent bottom instead of legs. The difference is that instead of six arms they only have a total of four. While they are large like a marilith, they are a bit smaller than a full blood marilith.


Most half-mariliths are born from a marilith mother that gave birth back in the abyssal plane. There, the half-marilith will likely embrace a chaotic nature due to the unacceptance from humans and other humanoid mortals.


While military tactics remain as a favorite of these creatures, half-mariliths embrace more of the intellectual aspects as opposed to the chaotic bloodshed. This is largely due to a lack of strength when compared to regular mariliths. Half-mariliths will try to dominate when they can, however this race will keep close watch on other fiendish ‘allies’ that may attempt to overthrow them. In cases like this, half-mariliths will logically calculate and attempt the best outcome to keep them alive, even if it allows the stronger foe to take over or for the half-marilith to leave all together.

Half-Marilith Names[edit]

Half-mariliths will receive a name relevant to their mother’s society since the parents are unlikely to stay together.
