Abyss Hound is the Melee Damager of the Demons faction.


Abyss Hounds are the scouts and thrall hunters of the Demon Legion. They are demons who exist to track down and kill the prey. Demon Legates let them off the leash when it's necessary to catch escaped prisoners of the Abyss.

Their terrible fangs and claws are as sharp as blades. Abyss Hound can make bloodcurdling howl that paralyzes a victim and deprives it of last hope. No one would envy those who were caught by the Abyss Hounds.

By the standards of the Legion, the Hounds are not the most hard-bitten of the demons, but they compensate low health by their high speed and ability to control enemy heroes with their howl.
