Rayu are wierd monsters combining the features of a dwarf, praying mantis, gorilla, horse and spider. They are highly intelligent and seemingly plot only to harm all other's welfare, but aside from this, their motivations are largely unknown, as is their origins. Perhaps they are outsiders native to some distant plane, or are magical creations of some wizard's experiments? Regardless, their origins are murky and unknown. Rayu inhabit steamy jungles and rainforests, cajoling all other evil beasts to get them to do their bidding. Rayu make their homes in large shacks containing their possessions. There is an 80% chance that a Rayu's shack contains 1d4+1 eighth-level treasures, in addition to the Rayu's standard treasure, and is guarded by 1d4+1 empowered, maximized mass charmed trolls, orcs, and wererats. Rayu speak their own language, Rayu, in addition to common, abyssal, and infernal.
