Mazzik (Demon)--Montporte Dungeon Campaign Critter

MAZZIK

The mazzik (plural mazzikii) is a human who has been tainted by the demonic. This usually happens when a human spends its childhood in close proximity to demons and the demonic. A mazzik lives a Jekyll & Hyde existence, living among humans in its human form but occasionally becoming monstrous and demonic.  A mazzik will position itself so that it can prey upon humans, usually by putting itself in a position of trust and leadership in a community.

The mazzik can go for several years with its demonic form in dormant state. The demonic form, when it comes forth, usually creates a feeding frenzy over the course of several days or weeks. The mazzik only has partial control of itself, with the changing to the demonic happening when it is least likely to be observed.
