Creatures of loss, Sorrowsworn demons appear only after a war or battle has finished. They prey on the feelings of great sorrow that permeate a region after the loss of its youth and promise.
A sorrowsworn demon stands between 12 and 15 feet high and weighs about 500 pounds. Its skin is always dusky black, and its face always appears as a mocking visage of great sadness.
A sorrowsworn demon preys on the weakness of others, and its tactics reflect this preface. It nearly always strikes from hiding, attempting to bring its aura of loss to bear on as many foes as possible. It then uses it mind reading abilities to determine what its foes most fear losing, then uses its whispers of loss to further weaken its opponents before ripping into them.
They often lurk in shattered temples dedicated to dead gods such as Myrkul and Bhaal, feeding on despair of forsaken clerics. They also hide among masses, feeding on the anguish of Thayans, Rashemaar, Cormyrians, Sembians, and other people who lost loved ones to the Tuigan Horde and similar invaders.
Favored haunts of sorrowsworn demons include mass graves, orphanages, hospitals, and the homes of those who have lost loved ones to battle. Wherever one can find the greatest concentration of souls suffering from loss, one can also often find a lurking sorrowsworn demon, encouraging those feelings and sating itself on them.
