All demons, regardless of ancestry, home, or creed, recognize the Obsidian Throne of Lyeria as the royal demon line. Imperial Demons will compete in a Throne Gambit whenever an Emperor passes on; the winning demon is awarded Emperorship by proving themselves in battle. A significant amount of subterfuge is employed among the houses to see that a chosen son or nephew ascends to the Obsidian Throne. Younger members of the royal houses (typically those nowhere near their house's line of inheritance) are more likely to adventure outside of Lyeria.
Imperial Demons come in a wide variety of physical appearances. They have enhanced strength, speed, stamina and many have unique abilities that typically focus on possession, mind control, lower elemental use, and body manipulation. While some imperial demons opt to morph their bodies to be beautiful and godlike others take inspiration from monstrosities.
