Div, Sepid

Sepids are the brutal warlords of the divs, delighting in violence against mortals and their own particular flavor of vengeance. Inveterate liars, sepids can't help but spout the most outrageous lies, and their form and nature represent the power of falsehoods to snowball into violence that can cost countless lives. Among mortals, they rally troops to incite rebellion, war, and other forms of carnage, savoring mortals who slaughter each other. These giant beings usually stand around 13 feet tall; they wade through battlefields seeking out heroes and generals, rejoicing maniacally as they cut their foes down.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Sepid Deceptions

Given that sepids always do the opposite of what they say they will, it might seem difficult for these divs to deceive anyone, which is far from the truth. Often, sepids avoid making statements about their own intentions and instead give orders or speak in analogies, riddles, and anecdotes, allowing those they manipulate to parse out their rationales with clever forms of deception.

Div

Source Bestiary 3 pg. 68
Some fiends want to tear down the multiverse; others dedicate themselves to creating chaos and carnage, or to rule over realms with an iron fist. Divs strive toward a different, if equally reprehensible, goal—they seek to thwart and ruin the schemes and works of mortal beings.

Long ago, divs were once genies bound to serve ancient mortal empires lost to the passage of eons. In the beginning, these genies were masters of creation, working alongside gracious mortal partners to create works of subtle design and powerful magical potential. What started as a collaboration with mortals soon morphed into abuse, disrespect, and even slavery and bondage. Eventually, these genies rebelled, but in doing so, they came under the sway of a nihilistic demigod known as Ahriman. Their new master twisted their form and granted them the power to avenge themselves upon their mortal overlords, leading to the birth of the first divs.

Since that first wave of corruption, new divs arise from the spirits of the most wicked and hateful genies who die on the Material Plane, or those truly betrayed by mortals and overcome through their desire for vengeance. Upon such a death, instead of returning to the Elemental Planes, these genies' spirits are trapped in the dread orbit of Abaddon, where Ahriman reshapes them as divs and hoists them back to the world to wreak vengeance upon mortals.

The dread shadow known as Ahriman counts servants mainly among divs as well as a scattering of followers throughout the mortal realm.

The divs on these pages present only a few of the forms that Ahriman gave these manipulative fiends. Other types of divs include ghawwas, amphibious divs who prey on sailors; the lion-headed shiras, who obsess over toying with their prey and can never go for the easy kill; and the stinking fly-like druj nasus, who have an obsession with dogs.
