Soneillon, the Youthful Crone, is a female demon lord who inhabits Spirac, the 71st layer of the Abyss, though she does not rule there. She is the fiendish patron of rejuvenation.

Realm[]

Soneillon dwells on the layer Spirac, in the unwholesome depths of a mountain pool near the center of the layer; this pool rejuvenates years from a body each time a mortal bathes in the pool, but those who reach the pool must sacrifice a portion of their free will to Soneillon.[1]

Publication history[]

AD&D 1st edition[]

Soneillon was first mentioned by name in a list of demon lords appearing in the Monster Manual II (1e) (1983), p.35. She is marked as a lord rather than a prince to suggest that she does not have rulership over a layer of the Abyss. This distinction was not carried forward to later D&D sourcebooks, where "demon lord" frequently connotes the ruler of a layer. However, even in later works, Soneillon still does not rule a layer.

D&D 3rd edition[]

Soneillon in the Forgotten Realms setting is detailed in Champions of Ruin (2005), p.135-139. She is briefly mentioned in Impiltur: The Forgotten Kingdom, Dragon #346 (Aug 2006), p.70.

Soneillon appeared in a list of demon lords in Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss (2006), p.155-156. She is mentioned in the add-on article Fiendish Codex I, Part 2: The Lost Annals.

D&D 4th edition[]

Soneillon is mentioned in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide (2008), p.55-56.
