Claim Wealth [one-action] (conjuration, divine, extradimensional) The nalfeshnee steals all unattended items glowing with its Light of Avarice into an extradimensional space. The demon can Interact to regurgitate any number of these items into their hand or onto the ground. If the demon dies, is affected by a teleportation effect, or consumes an extradimensional space (such as a bag of holding), they vomit up all the items.

Light of Avarice [two-actions] (divine, enchantment, light, mental); Frequency once per hour; Effect Beams of unholy light shoot from the nalfeshnee toward four items within 60 feet. If someone is holding or wearing a targeted item, they can keep it from being affected with a successful DC 34 Reflex save. For 1 minute, the affected items glow in nauseating colors. Any non-demon is sickened 2 and slowed 1 as long as it holds, wears, or touches a glowing item. Recovering from the sickness requires a successful DC 29 Will save instead of a Fortitude save. Ending the sickness this way ends the slowed condition and makes the creature temporarily immune to Light of Avarice for 24 hours. If the creature removes or drops the item, both conditions end immediately but the creature doesn’t become immune to Light of Avarice.


Nalfeshnees are huge, corpulent, boar-headed demons that hoard treasures and knowledge alike and form from the souls of avaricious mortals. Few demons understand the inner workings of the Abyss itself like nalfeshnees, and it’s not unusual for a nalfeshnee to see itself as a servitor of the Abyss itself first rather than bow before a demon lord. Some claim stewardship over the fleshy realms that birth new demons, while others guard sites of particular significance deep in the plane’s secret reaches. A nalfeshnee’s realm in the Abyss can easily surpass the strength and size of the largest mortal kingdoms, for nalfeshnees display a singular gift for managing and manipulating the chaos of the Abyss.

Nalfeshnees covet knowledge as well as material goods, especially if such information can help satisfy the needs and desires of the Abyss. Each nalfeshnee has areas of interest in which they’re highly knowledgeable, but before a nalfeshnee reveals a secret, they typically demand a secret of at least equal value in return.
