Known Glabrezu Edit

A glabrezu named Jurazel had infiltrated the palace of Sovereign Uriel Tal'Dorei III in Emon.[2] Vox Machina made a pact with it in exchange for a Wish, which they used before completing the bargain—wishing to cancel the contract.[3] The party attacked Jurazel, but during the fight, Pike was slain by a critical hit as the glabrezu picked her up in its pincer-like hand and cut her in half.[4][5]
