Escape: Difarim do not flee.
Sphere Lore (Beings from the Spheres)
- QL 1: Difarim are among the best-known demons. A nasty disease (swift difar) is named for them.
- QL 2: A difar is very effective against certain enemies, even though it is not a true combat demon.
- QL 3+: Even though it is only a lesser demon, it is extremely difficult to hit. This is probably due to its mutability.
Shapeless: The body of a difar is so shapeless that it can fit through tight bars, or even through a gap between boards in a door.
Frenzied: When a difar loses 5 LP, it becomes frenzied and gains the following modifiers: –2 DE, +2 AT, and +1 level Confusion to an opponent if the whir attack succeeds. This state remains in effect until the opponent is either killed or incapacitated through Confusion, but no longer than 30 minutes.
Fast: Due to their speed and constant motion, difarim are always deemed to be zigzagging when attacked via ranged combat (see Core Rules, page 242). Plus, difarim enjoy only the benefits of zigzagging, they do not suffer the movement penalties.
Demon Rules: Difarim use all general demon rules.
