The Type VIII class of demon appears as an ugly, winged lion with oversized paws and a horned tail. They have brute strength and a remarkable cunning. In battle, the demon uses its forepaws, rending for 1-8 damage (+1-2 hp/rnd for 1-6 rounds due to blood loss). Its powerful jaws will then gorge the same opponent for 4-24 points.

This deadly being can use any these spell-like abilities at will: DARKNESS 10' RADIUS, DETECT MAGIC, DETECT INVISIBILITY, DETECT GOOD and EVIL, DISPEL MAGIC, POLYMORPH SELF, TELEKINESE 6500gp WEIGHT, use SYMBOLS OF DISCORD, FEAR, HOPELESSNESS, INSANITY, SLEEP, and STUNNING, and utter an UNHOLY WORD once per day.

Its most feared attack is its breath weapon: a 5-dice LIGHTNING BOLT with 100' range, which it can use three times per day. Also, this type of demon can GATE in a Type I (25%), II (20%), III (20%), IV (10%), V (10%), VI, VII, or VIII (5% each), with a 65% chance of success.
