Vexpa is a demon lord who lives in her layer of the abyss. She controls her army of minions, and her layer bends to her will. In appearance, she appears to be a large, green, wasp. She is a magic user, but her magic only extends to her plane of existence. She can leave, but she is weak outside of her plane. As she is in her plane, Vexpa shrinks all guests down to size, making them easy to dispatch. When in her lair, she can take humanoid form. Vexpa is often acceptive of fey creatures, and may allow them into her plane, as they often use size changing magic and hate large folk. When Vexpa leaves her layer, she loses most of her power and uses her normal statistics.
