With a flattened, lupine face and skin pulled taught over its skeletal frame, the creature is terrible to behold. It wears entrails and bones of previous victims over its dark red fur and has black spikes jutting from its spine.

Favor Warlike Lords. While demon lords are popular overlords for yek demons, at other times they swear themselves to hierophant liches, umbral vampires, or anyone else who can guarantee them a steady supply of fresh, strong bone, frequent combat, and wanton destruction.

Pack of Cannibals. Yek are loathsome fiends, hated by other demons because of their cannibalistic tendencies. They are creatures that do not care what flesh they feed upon but prefer it to be raw and wriggling. Though vicious fighters alone, they are rarely encountered without their pack. Even the most powerful of fiends can be brought down by a pack of yek.

Pack Loyalties. The lesser yek demons are completely subservient to their pack leader, sometimes called the alpha yek, and follow that leader’s direction in all things. This includes targets to attack, to which demon lord to swear obeisance, and when to betray one demonic warlord for another. They always move together as a group, directed by the strongest. When a yek pack leader is slain, the lesser yek scatter in complete disarray. They choose another leader within a few days, celebrating the occasion with an unholy feast. Some demonologists have confirmed that the weakest member of the pack is devoured by the new leader during this feast.
