The Volatile Imp can be a handy little creature that helps you through a quest or in battle. They are fairly small and go unnoticed by most mortals and creatures, but if you can control enough of them, they can be very distracting.
They have very low intelligence, and will eat anything they can get their tiny hands on. Purple, leathery skin, small wings, and a mouth of razor sharp teeth make them annoying in small groups, but fairly dangerous in large packs.
Called to Eucos from a demonic realm, they are unable to control their own spells or energy, but that doesn’t stop them from trying. Inexperience and low intelligence usually mean they blow themselves up. It’s possible to convince one to fight, but it has to be done before they have time to think on their own. When that happens, someone is bound to get a little hurt by collateral damage from the tiny explosion.
