The arcanadaemon appears as a robed human with the head of a fanged jackal or war dog. Ivory white horns jut from the top of its head.


The arcanadaemon attacks using its spells, psionics, and spell-like abilities. In melee combat it utilizes its claws, bite, and horns.

Spells: Arcanadaemons can replicate spells as 12th-level sorcerers (save DC 13 + spell level).

Summon Daemons (Sp): Once per day an arcanadaemon can automatically summon two piscodaemons or hydrodaemons or one mezzodaemon, nycadaemon, or another arcanadaemon.
