Pride demons are incredibly powerful demons, the corrupted form of wisdom and faith spirits. They are among the most powerful demons known to Thedas, and most insidious.

Such is their strength that possessing a corpse doesn't produce another shambling warrior, but a respectively powerful revenant or arcane horror.

Background Edit

The most powerful demons yet encountered are the pride demons, perhaps because they, among all their kind, most resemble men; as clever and manipulative as the desire demon, with a penchant for cruel irony that is almost human. While the demons of desire largely engage in the bribery of mortals, pride will use mortals' own best nature against them. Clever men outwit themselves. Strong men crush themselves. Humble men forget themselves. Jealous men fear themselves. They turn corruption and ruin into an art. —From Beyond the Veil: Spirits and Demons by Enchanter Mirdromel
—From Codex entry: Pride Demon

  • An example of this is the pride demon in the quest Asunder. The Fade beast lies dormant until the Warden assembles its body parts, at which point it will attempt to barter for its freedom.
  • Another notable pride demon is the one encountered in the Circle Tower when the abominations are unleashed within. Uldred attempted to summon demons under his control but like many before him succumbed to its will and became an abomination himself.
  • During The Harrowing in the Mage Origin, another pride demon seems to make an appearance. In the Fade, after the Spirit of Rage is defeated, Mouse will ask for help to leave. If the mage decides against it, he will tell them that they have just passed the true test and will transform into a Pride demon
