Prowling demons are created from demons that have failed demon lords as servants for their mortal followers that perform truly evil deeds. They look something like eels with two long tentacles covered in eyes, and they slither on the ground like snakes. Those struck by the prowling demon's tentacles momentarily experience the demon's shattered psyche, and are often haunted by the memories for hours, if not days afterwards.
A prowling demon is driven to prove itself to the master it displeased, but as it has no recollection of its previous existence, it blindly follows urges it barely comprehends, serving its mortal master mindlessly.
