A burning star falling from the void or a petitioner on fire? It makes no difference; both are equally beautiful to me.
~ Helekanalaith, keeper of the Tower Arcane


Arcanaloths are covetous, manipulative, cunning, and sly greater yugoloths originating from Oinos, the first layer of Hades. Among the yugoloths, they serve as lesser leaders and are renowned for their particular penchant for the arcane (hence their name). Arcanaloths have an in-depth sense of style that counteracts against their jackal-like appearance, which most consider off-putting; thus, most arcanaloths, if caught in negotiations, will transform into a more fitting humanoid shape, with a charming smile and glint in their eye.

Arcanaloths, much like all yugoloths, constantly seek to ascend to the next rank of their society- thus, in all of their conniving and trickery, arcanaloths seek the stepping stone to the rank of ultroloth, the faceless overlords of the yugoloths.
