Aldinach, Lady of Change, is a demon lord.

Description

Aldinach is a reclusive demon princess who delights in the perversion of the pure and innocent. She appears as a lithe humanoid woman with her face covered by an alabaster mask, and with polished mahogany skin and long fingers that end in needles. She uses these needles to inject putrid sap into her victims.

Relationships

Realm

Aldinach lives on the layer of Pazunia, from the fortress of Aldinach's Egg by the edge of the Grand Abyss. This towering structure is packed with grim laboratories, operating theaters, and hideous audience chambers draped in the skins of failed experiments. Guests who stay too long are fed to the Brethren, a score of chaos beasts who dwell in the Egg's uppermost Forbidden Chambers.

Aldinach is one of several demon lords who claims stretch of the Grand Abyss.

Worshipers

Aldinach commands a growing cult on several Material Plane worlds that is concerned with the abduction of righteous holy figures or sacred beasts such as ki-rins or lammasus, which are taken to Aldinach's Egg to endure vile experiments which corrupt their nature and enslave them to Aldinach's whims. Those strong enough to survive Pazunia defend the territory within a mile of Aldinach's Egg.
