Morituri was a demon species of green arachnid creatures from a hell dimension. Lacking higher brain function, they were bred for inter-hell conflicts and suicide missions, to kill as many of the enemy as possible before being brought down itself.
Physiology & Powers
Morituri demons had green skin, sharp teeth, no eyes, and a long tail that shoot poisonous thorns. Despite bipedal creatures, their four piercing claws allowed them to crawl, climb, and hang themselves.
Their skin was thick enough to resist blade, but being caught on fire by trespassing a protective spell made it easy to decapitate.
Behind the Scenes
- The name "Morituri" is Latin for “those who are about to die,” as in the phrase “Ave, Imperator, morituri te salutant.”
