Armaros is an outcast Duke of Hell, one of the Rabble of Devilkin, in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

Publication history[edit]

Armaros first appears in Ed Greenwood's article "The Nine Hells Revisited" in Dragon #91 (November 1984).[1]

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


Armaros the "Resolver of Enchantments," is one of the most powerful beings in Baator. A very skilled arcane spellcaster, his spellcasting power is rumored to be greater than any other devil, even Asmodeus. For this reason, it is said, the Lord of Nessus exiled Armaros to Avernus and forbids any other Dukes to have contact with the exile. Armaros is content with his condition and wants nothing more than being left alone to practice his magic undisturbed. Armaros appears as a gray-skinned, handsome human male with dark gray wings and luminescent blue eyes.


Armaros is one of the Rabble of Devilkin. He could have served Asmodeus directly but due to his feuds with the other generals of Baator's Overlord (especially Adramalech and Phongor), this is not possible. He's said to be visited by Asmodeus quite often.
