Devil, Alastor (Executioner of Hell)

This entity stands at least 16 feet tall and its body is entirely cloaked in hellish red and yellow flames. Huge bat-like wings spread from its scaled body. Its arms end in clawed hands which hold a tight grip on a wickedly curved battleaxe of iron. Its eyes are black with red pupils and its mouth is filled with rows of fangs.

Alastor rarely engages in combat; not because he cannot, but because most such encounters are trivial to him and he becomes bored with it very easily. If pressed into battle, he uses his power word kill ability immediately against his closest opponent. Next, he unleashes a meteor storm, followed by a fireball, before finishing his spell-like abilities with a mass hold monster against as many foes as possible. Next he wades into battle with Grimfang and his array of natural attacks. When he finally becomes bored with the battle, he seeks to quickly end it by calling in other devils to finish off any remaining opponents. Should Alastor be in danger at any time, he uses his greater teleport to escape, remembering his foes for a later time, which he will invariably hunt down with a retinue of pit fiends and kill.

Unique Item: Grimfang

A creature subjected to the vorpal effects of Grimfang can only be returned to life by the casting of a miracle, wish, or a true resurrection spell (the last of which must be cast on consecrated ground).
