Design details

Typhus is an altraloth, a unique magically augmented yugoloth, in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

Publication history[edit]

Typhus was first mentioned by name only in the daemon entry in the original Monster Manual II (1983) as one of the chief beings challenging Anthraxus for the position of Oinoloth.[1]

Typhus appeared as one of the altraloths in Dragon Annual #2 (1997).[2]


Resembling a hunch-backed mezzoloth, Typhus is a powerful general who commands an army known as the Infernal Front.[2]


Typhus was empowered to defeat Mellifleur's armies, back when the lich-god was attempting to seize control of the larva trade.[2]
