Phyllis the Pain Elemental is a Champion Demon the in the service of Deag Grav. She is played by Anjali Bhimani in the DOOM Eternal One-Shot.

Description[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Phyllis is the least humanoid of the demons deployed to Armaros Base. She has no legs or feet,[3] and only three fingers on each hand.[4] Her mini also shows her to have horns and a single eye in the center of her body.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Phyllis is the most careful and cautious of the demons deployed to the Armaros Base, often preferring to use her soul shield for defense rather than making attacks. She steals and eats the souls of humans and similarly "took" the name Phyllis after hearing it offworld.[5] During the early stages of the infiltration of Armaros, she comes to consider the musician souls in her collection to be "lucky",[6] and preferentially calls on them for the remainder of her adventure.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

As a Champion Demon in the service of Deag Grav, Phyllis assisted in the conquest of Earth and helped in the destruction of the Knight Sentinels of Argent.[7]

"DOOM Eternal One-Shot" (OSx37)[edit | edit source]

Phyllis was selected by Deag Grav to be part of a group of demons tasked with infiltrating the Armaros Base, killing Dr. Samuel Hayden, and destroying the Argent weapon he'd been working on within the base. She met with the rest of the group on the steps of the Blood Temple before traveling to the base. During the infiltration Phyllis was often the one checking for base personnel and other dangers before the demons entered various areas. After failing to stop the activation of the Argent Hammer, Phyllis was permanently weakened by its effects. After the arrival of the Doom Slayer Phyllis bore the brunt of his assault due to her slow movement speed making it difficult for her to evade him, however she was able to endure it thanks to her regenerating soul shield. She was finally knocked unconscious by the Doom Slayer while she was attempting to destroy the Armaros Base teleporter relay, resulting in her death when the base was destroyed.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Soul Shield: Phyllis can call forth the souls she's eaten to protect herself as an Action, granting her 3d8+8 temporary HP.[8]
  • Soul Shield Projectile: Phyllis can, as an Action, project her Soul Shield towards a target, forcing them to make a Dexterity saving throw. The target takes necrotic damage equal to the temp HP granted by the Soul Shield on a failed save, and half as much on a success. Doing this causes Phyllis to lose the temporary HP granted by the Soul Shield.[9]
  • Lost Soul: Phyllis can use on of the souls in her collection to make a ranged attack (range 60/120) as an Action, dealing 2d8 necrotic damage on a hit.[10]
  • Summon Advanced Demon: Phyllis can summon a Cacodemon as an Action.[11]
