Overview

This article or section contains lore-related information.
Though not strictly necessary for playing the game, you are encouraged to read this section if you wish to have a better understanding of the game's universe.

Demonic creatures are employees of Hell, Inc., the Demonic faction.

Archdaemons are the evolved form of maldukes, as well as the final and most powerful form that can eventually be reached by an imp. Averaging at 7 foot 3 inches and 300 pounds, the archdaemon is the tallest demonic creature in the Mazes. The skin tones of an archdaemon re brighter and more vivid than most other demonic creatures, ranging between crimson and scarlet. Like maldukes, archdaemons are sharply-dressed and very conscious of their appearance, wearing largely the same type of outfit; a black business suit over a red office shirt (tie optional), black office pants, and black leather shoes. Some can also be seen wearing shades, usually red-tinted aviators or black round glasses.

As the strongest of demonic creatures in the Mazes, they are perhaps one of the most resilient creatures in the world. It was once estimated that an archdaemon could withstand as many as 20 direct hits of 7.62x39mm FMJ fire to the chest, and still be standing and capable of fighting. This comes with the assumption that any potential opponents will be able to land that many hits at once on them; they possess a huge pool of Demonic Energy, most start with enough DE to immediately cast Hell-gating. They are also capable of performing the unique Hellfireblast attack, an offensive Demonic power which consists of the Archdaemon spitting huge gouts of black flames, said to burn hotter and longer than even dragon fire.

Within the demonic hierarchy, they are classified as Echelon 3 or Managers, above maldukes, and incinerators. There are no other creatures of the same rank, and archdaemons answer directly to Hell's leaders, the Board of Directors. They are even more rarely seen than maldukes, and it is often said that if an archdaemon is on the field, it means Hell is about to make an important move. While not always strictly true, this is evocative of the archdaemon's great powers and responsibilities.
