Caarcrinolaas is a Duke of Hell in the service of Mammon, in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

Publication history[edit]

Caarcrinolaas first appears in Ed Greenwood's article "The Nine Hells Part I" in Dragon #75 (1983).[1]

Caarcrinolaas was briefly detailed in Fiendish Codex II: Tyrants of the Nine Hells (2006).[2]

Description[edit]

Caarcrinolaas is a gray/brown-furred, dog-headed humanoid with scarlet bat-like wings, upright scarlet horns protruding from a bony brow-ridge above each temple, black hooves, and a scarlet, forked tail. In the center of his brow is a third horn. He has strong, bony, scarred hands of human appearance, and glittering yellow eyes.

Relationships[edit]

Caarcrinolaas is a lesser commander in the service of Mammon. Before the Reckoning of Hell, he primarily kept his head down and followed orders, leaving it to others to stick their necks out in the name of ambition. Caarcrinolaas instead merely waited patiently for his opportunity to come.

Since then, he seems to have run out of patience, and he is currently conspiring with Melchon, a fellow servant of Mammon, to murder the duke Bael and seize control of his legions, then use these additional troops to launch a coup against Mammon himself. Little do they know that they are actually doing the will of Glasya, who wishes to destroy Mammon, her former lover, and add his layer to her own.

Vassals[edit]

Caarcrinolaas is served by 36 companies of barbed devils. Each company includes 333 soldiers.
