There were planned 3 types of Infernals, but so far only the first one was released, Crimson Infernal. The other two are titled Void Infernal and Savage or Oni Infernal. Infernals' signature environmental ability is creation of one-way portals for allies, but what unique abilities unreleased creatures had is unknown.


This creature supposedly didn't make even into Alpha phase as finished asset, or exists only in core test builds. However, all versions of the game contains its (draft, if not prototype) model and a ‘family’ icon.
