Ed's Notes: In HELL... If the Spinagons are like the Kobolds, and the Abishai the Goblins then these guys are like ORCS. Except, not really as they kick WAY too much ass for that. And they're a LOT smarter - than Orcs, yes, but also  smarter than they LOOK too! But if you're looking from Front Line / Shock Troops in Baator, look no further!

Unless otherwise noted, Special Abilities can be used once per round.
