Shaktari is a demon lord, in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game.

Publication history[edit]

Shaktari was first mentioned in the adventure "Nemesis" in Dungeon #60 (July/August 1996).[1]

Shaktari received further details in third edition in Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss (2006).[2] Shaktari received a full description in the "Demonomicon of Iggwilv: Apocrypha" edition in Dragon #359 (2007).[3]


Shaktari is known as the Queen of Mariliths.

Shaktari is a marilith of gargantuan proportions, with flaming red eyes and skin of blackest night. This dark fiend is said to devour all that she sees, although she spends most of her time 'sleeping' in the crimson oceans of her realm.

She is also one of the few souls who's managed to escape from the Wells of Darkness.



She lives on the 531 layer of the Abyss, called Vudra.
