Hatred of Mirrors A wrecker demon loathes the sight of its own reflection. When a creature Interacts with a mirror within sight of the wrecker demon, the demon takes a -2 penalty to Will saves against Intimidation checks. A wrecker demon that ends its turn adjacent to a mirror or that is attacked by a creature holding a mirror takes 1d6 mental damage (this usually leads wrecker demons to focus their efforts on destroying nearby mirrors using Wreck).

Divine Rituals Abyssal pact

Mutilating Bite (curse, divine, necromancy) When the wrecker demon hits a creature with a jaws Strike, the creature must succeed at a DC 21 Fortitude save or become physically mutilated. The creature then takes a -1 status penalty to Charisma-based checks.

This penalty is cumulative up to -3, and remains even if the wounds are healed.

The penalty is reduced by 1 every 24 hours until it reaches 0.

Wreck [one-action] The wrecker demon makes two claw Strikes against an object (if the object is worn or held by a creature, this action gains the manipulate trait). If both Strikes hit, combine their damage for the purpose of overcoming its Hardness. These Strikes do not count toward the wrecker demon’s multiple attack penalty, nor does that penalty apply to these Strikes.

About

Wrecker demons, also known as abrikandilus, despise beautiful things and do everything in their power to destroy both people and objects that might be regarded as such. An abrikandilu forms from the soul of a mortal who in life was a vandal or defacer of artworks, particularly if those acts of destruction stemmed from feelings of powerful envy.

The only thing an abrikandilu loathes more than beauty is its own visage. The mere sight of its own face-reflected in a mirror, a shield, or even a pool of water-is enough to send a wrecker demon into a rage.

Many demon slayers use this tactic to their advantage, venturing into battle with polished steel shields and cold iron blades at the ready.

Coroners and priests in demon-infested lands know immediately that they’re dealing with a vermlek when they’re brought a corpse that is little more than a sack of skin.
