Imps are small, unattractive humanoids with a tail and bat-like wings. Their tail ends in a barb that can deliver a toxin that saps the will of its victim. Like most devils, they have a pair of horns which can range from conical and stubby, to extravagant ram horns.
Playing an Imp
Imps are created from a larva in Hell or Acheron. They are very minor devils created to spread evil, often summoned as familiars for wizards. Occasionally an imp will find itself masterless and for whatever reason does not or cannot return to its home plane. Such adventuring imps tend to be mischievous rather than evil. They are fond of pranks and misleading people. A generous rationale for this behaviour is that imps can feel lonely, and this is their way of attracting the attention of humans. Inevitably the target of their attention becomes irritated by such tomfoolery and spurns the imp.
With their ability to become invisible and their penchant for skulduggery, they can find employment as informants or spies with those who can tolerate their company.
