The demon lord of portals and riddles, Areshkagal (pronounced uh-RESH-ka-gal)[1] is found in the Abyssal realm realm of the Blood Clefts.[2]


Areshkagal is a faceless, six-legged female sphinx whose midnight-blue fur is sparse enough that her very pale skin can be seen through it. Draconic wings sprout from her shoulder blades and her tail is the front half of a viper.[2]


Areshkagal's mightier, younger half-sister, Aldinach, ousted her from her former domain in the Sea of Whispering Sands. Their shared mother, Lamashtu, pays no heed to the strife between the two demon lords, so Areshkagal constantly sends groups of demonic sphinxes and other denizens of her realm against Aldinach without fear of repercussion.[2]

Worshipers and Followers[]

Areshkagal has fewer worshipers than her sister, since after her defeat she lost many of her powers. On the Material Plane she has followers in the drow house of Vonnarc in Zirnakirkyn. Other possible creatures that may acknowledge her include evil maftets, sphinxes, portal-mages, and lamias in Osirion and Katapesh.[3]
