Found only in liquid Abyssal planes, type IX demons deliver a terrible bite (4-40) with a pronounced, gaping maw with horrid, foot-long tusks. Adventurers disturbing the foul waters and lands within a mile of the demon's lair will attract its attention.

All demons of this type (although only three are even known to exist) bestow the following spell-like powers: DARKNESS 20' RADIUS, CAUSE FEAR (with twice the potency of a FEAR wand), DETECT GOOD/MAGIC/INVISIBILITY, DISPEL MAGIC, cause HYDROTECHNICS (whirlpools, vortexes, fierce undertows, etc.), POLYMORPH SELF and OTHER (3x/day), PROJECT IMAGE, PART WATER, and HYPNOTISM (as 12th level Illusionist).

The lair of the beast would contain openly displayed gems among its other accumulated treasures. They each have a draconian pride in their wealth, despite a high intellect. The treasure is kept in magical pockets of poisonous air, deep within the boiling-water bowels of their tunneled coral mazes.

For more about the general characteristics of Demons, see MMI (p.16) and MMII (p.35).
