Raign the Kyton


Raign the Kyton is an ancient Kyton demon who have been cursed by his former master with a soul.

Special Equipment:


Raign dresses in large, raggy robes to prevent commoners from noticing he is a demon.


Raign the Kyton is a powerful ancient demon. He was one of Lazlanann Zubgur’s generals in the war know to elves as An’tol Ohta. Raign was actually one of the youngest generals among Zubgur’s army (when not counting the few human generals).  In that war Raign lead one of the larger armies of orcs and trolls, the 3rd bataljon. His whole army was anhialated by the dwarves in Bardûm, but Raign escaped the battlefield along with 5 of his trusted bodyguards. But Zubgur rarely rewards defeat, and he never rewards cowardice generals. Zubgur did the worst thing you could ever do to a demon that “lives” on peoples fear and terror, he cursed him with a soul and a conscience.

For nearly two centuries, Raign spent all his time in solitude feeling remorse for his actions, when finally he decided that he would no longer feel sorry for himself. He would try and right his wrongs by helping those in need.
But it was hard to gain peoples trust, when you look like such a terrifying creature as a Kyton demon. Raign started dressing himself in bandages and robes to hide his appearence, but his chains still make some noise underneath his clothing.

Roleplaying Notes:

Raign keeps his appearance hidden at all times and tries to keep his chains from rattling as well, but if a person is very aware of his presence and concentrates hard on listening and seeing, they would most likely see the physiological differences between a normal human and this grotesque demon. Raign try to avoid using his demonic powers, when humans, or other creatures like them, are near.

Actually a creative way to punish someone ... how did the demon lord know this was so bad? Perhaps he had a soul once before himself?
Anyway, this sure is not bad. Have to decide whether to give 3 or 4.

Its simple, but it does wrap it up nicely. I'd like to know the physical description of the demon - all we gather is that its form differs from humans, but not so much he cant hide them, and that he also has chains of some sort grafted to him...?

From what I understand, the Kyton is a demon that's wrapped in chains or something. I'm not sure though.
Pretty short and sweet. It's allright.

I think this one is the definition of a three score. There are some questions we would like answered, but they are all minor enough that we can make up our own answers without harming the integrity of the piece. The character's use is "open ended" and can be dropped in just about any campaign with a minimum of tweeking. The language and punctuation are all correct (or close enough that nobody is going to whine about it). Yep. It is a three.

There is a bit more background to this character, as I see you've noticed quite quickly. The info about the Kyton Demon in general can be found in D&D 3rd edition Creatures Handbook (or whatever it's called). The Kyton Demon is my favorite "monster" of them all.

And as a little idea here comes what I've used him for in my campaign:
Raign is a character I've "condemned" to follow (maybe just for a short while) with a group of Pelionic Monks and Paladins (Pelion is the "Look-at-me-I'm-so-rightous" kinda deity in my campaign.) Only one of the monks (a PC) do not know that he is a demon, but he quickly finds that something is amiss (a lot of fun when the PC player is very edgy about these things). As soon as the PC finds out he is a Kyton Demon, a servant of evil, he quickly condemn the beast. The only thing is that the PC is actually a half-orc raised among the Monks in the monestary... You can maybe imagine the point I wish to show the PC. If not: DO NOT JUDGE BEFORE YOU KNOW THE TALE!

I used this in the first "Intro" campaign session which I ran alone with this PC. I had sensed that the PC player had a bit "odd" views on how he would play his PC. So just to give him a little hint of what the consequences of his actions would be, I made this little intro story just for his character.

I am upping this one to a 4 on my scale because it is such a solid idea and is so easy to insert into pretty much anything.

What is the significance of the chains?

The chains grow out from different places on is body and is wrapped around him, functioning as armor and can be used as assualt weapons. If you want to know about the Kyton Demon look it up in D&D Monsters Guide for 3rd ed.
July 5, 2004, 19:51
Yeah... well... about looking it up... ^^

I kinda don't have any roleplaying books ;)
But I get the picture.

I know you can find information on the Kyton demon many places on the net, just search on google...

Tortured souls wrapped in chains? Makes me think of Hellraiser, and how much it made me squirm the first time I saw it. Could be a very untrustworthy informant, or ally. Sure he has a conscience, and a soul, but a demon is a still a demon, right.

Always fun to muddy up the water, so to speak.

A demon is, and will always be, a demon... Nothing can change that... But I'll leave the rest of the character to whom ever finds it usefull in their story...

Uh.. Kytons are devils, not demons.. Demons are chaotic evil, devils are lawful evil, and the two reside on different planes and loathe eachother with a passion.

Does it really matter? What matters is the idea, which is not bad, for worlds that have demons aplenty.

An interesting demon, with actual role-playing possibilities. Folks - try to avoid subs that require knowledge of specific systems, and especially specific creatures.

In the days of old, before the dominance of humanity, the giants were the supreme rulers of the world and their crafts were considered to be the best. These beings venerated the god of the forge above all others and their swords and armors were the best that could be had even in the days of their decline. A hero seeking a masterwork sword might have to voyage long and hard to find a surviving giant smith or cache of rare and valuable giantcraft weapons.
