Those dead which go to the 666 layers of the demonic abyss become
manes. The most evil of them are confined in the tiers of flames of
Gehenna. They are only semi-intelligent and attack any non-demon with
nails and teeth. Killing them simply dissipates them into stinking clouds of
vapor which reform into manes in one day. Demon lords and princes
sometimes feed upon these creatures, destroying them utterly. Treat them
as undead with regard to sleep, charm, and similar spells.

Certain manes will be used to form shadows or ghosts, (qqv), depending
upon the greatness of their evil in material life. They can also be sent forth
by a lord or prince to exist on the material plane for a day. These are
typically those from Gehenna.
