The massive, bloated demon stands 15 feet tall, his immense frame a hideous combination of muscle and bloated flesh. Its head is that of a ram with a great maw filled with tusks, and its thick-furred legs end in cloven hooves. Leathery wings and a barb-tipped tail complete the picture of the archetypal demon.

Orcus is the powerful demon lord of the undead. He began, like many demon lords, as a wicked mortal- a powerful spellcaster. He slowly climbed the ranks of demonhood after his demise until he became Orcus, demon lord of the damned. He would eventually achieve godhood, although this was temporary as he was soon after slaughtered. Orcus has a terrible habit of returning from the dead and squabbling with his fellow demons. It is said that he is one of (if not the most) powerful demon lord, with massive physical strength coming from his massive frame (standing 15 ft tall and weighing 6,000 lbs).
