Breath Weapon [two-actions] (divine, evocation, fire) The brimorak spits their boiling blood in a 20-foot line that deals 6d6 fire damage (DC 21 basic Reflex save). The brimorak can’t use their

Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds. The ground within this area becomes slippery, with the effects of a grease spell targeting an area until it’s cleaned up or the brimorak is able to use their Breath Weapon again, whichever comes first.

Flaming Weapon (divine, evocation, fire) A brimorak’s hooves and any weapon they wield burst into flame, dealing an extra 1d6 fire damage with each hit. If they don’t have a weapon, they can create a flaming sword of fire and steel (see flaming sword Strike in Melee entry above).

Fume [two-actions] (divine, evocation, fire) The brimorak emits a cloud of thick black smoke in a 10-foot burst that remains in place for 1d4 rounds. All creatures within the smoke become concealed, and all creatures outside the smoke become concealed to creatures within it. A creature that enters or begins its turn within the smoke it must succeed at a DC 21 Fortitude save or become sickened 1 (sickened 2 on a critical failure).


These goat-headed demons have glowing red eyes and flaming hooves but measure only about 3 feet in height. Born from the souls of arsonists, the fiery brimoraks continue the work they pursued in life, as everything they touch quickly burns.

As a general rule, brimoraks are ill-tempered even for demons, although their spite turns to glee in the face of a growing fire. Those who have survived encounters with these fiends report that they remember the braying sound of the brimoraks’ laughter as clearly as the heat of the flames or the choking scent of smoke.

Many underestimate brimoraks due to their size, forgetting that tiny embers can blow into raging infernos in the blink of an eye. Brimoraks believe that they grow larger with each fire they set, though larger arson demons have yet to be seen.
