Typhon is a deceased archdevil, the former ruler of Avernus, the first layer of Hell. Ruling from the garden domain of Arima, he was slain by the empyreal lord Ragathiel, possibly at the urging of Asmodeus as punishment for a dalliance with the demon lord Lamashtu. Typhon was succeeded as Lord of the First by Barbatos.1
Typhon had dragon-like wings, a serpentine tail, and poisonous claws.3
