Demon Lords


The Faceless Lord
CE male demon lord of ooze monsters, poison, and sloth


Unholy Symbol: a melting red eye
Domains: Chaos, Evil, Destruction, Madness
Favored Weapon: None
Temple: Caverns, junkyards, sewers
Worshipers: Drow, drug users, poisoners, the slothful
Minions: Oozes
Obedience: Submerge a small, severed piece of a human body in a vial of acid and chant praise to Jubilex as the flesh dissolves. Gain a +4 profane bonus on all saving throws against poison. Up to 3 times per day, you may use the poison as a spell-like ability. If you make an attack with a melee weapon, you may activate this ability as a swift action as part of your attack, targeting the foe struck with the effect. You may use this ability at a caster level equal to your character level.

Of the demon lords listed here, Jubilex is perhaps the one least concerned with maintaining a cult. His favored minions, the omoxes (Pathfinder Adventure Path #16), do more to spread his cults than he does—in fact, it’s debatable whether Jubilex even realizes he has worshipers. Only among the drow is his faith particularly popular and pervasive. Certainly, those who worship him tend not to think of him as an entity to be venerated as much as a source of power. Yet despite the Faceless Lord’s lack of interest in his faithful, he certainly knows of the Material Plane and enjoys absorbing the bodies of unwilling mortals into his protoplasmic bulk.

Jubilex appears as a shapeless green mass of ooze shot through with dark ribbons of tar and hundreds of glaring red eyes the size of a man’s head. His realm on the Abyss is called the Undersump, and consists of a tangled warren of sewer-like catacombs and tunnels that winds below dozens of other Abyssal realms—many creatures use the Undersump as a method of covertly moving from one such realm to the other, but they must take care to avoid Jubilex’s awareness when they do. Of course, Jubilex’s wanderings and attention to the regions of the Undersump are basically random, and certain parts of the realm are so rarely visited by the Faceless Lord that other strange and dangerous creatures have claimed them.
