Lupercio is a demon lord, known as the Baron of Sloth, in the Dungeons and Dragons role playing game.
Lupercio is ebon-colored, indistinct in form. Because he projects darkness around him for ten miles, it is impossible to distinguish the darkness of his body from its surroundings. That is, except for three signs: his smiling maw, his basso tittering laugh, and his incredible strength. Shadow fiends swarm about, feeding on the shadows surrounding him. Lupercio vacillates between periods of utter indolence and periods of manic activity in which he speeds through tasks with blinding precision.
Lupercio's home layer, the Slugbed, is a foggy domain containing shallow seas, forests, and subterranean vaults. All of it teams with fiendish gastropods. High overhead, above the concealing fog, are majestic castles filled with angelic beings, that some believe are attempting to convert Slugbed into a realm of good. Lupercio doesn't care.
Lupercio has small lairs on other layers ranging from cramped hovels, to graceful castles, to dung-filled riverbeds.
Lupercio's lengthy periods of inactivity prevent him from gaining a following.
Lupercio was first mentioned in Faces of Evil: The Fiends (1997). Lupercio received further details in third edition in Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss (2006). Lupercio received further description in the fourth edition book Demonomicon (2010).
