The screecher is a monster introduced in The Ancient Gods, Part Two. It is a variant of the Hell zombie identifiable by its purple aura.

Tactical analysis

On their own screechers are no more dangerous than regular zombies, but when killed they unleash a scream that empowers all other demons in the arena, making them stronger, faster and harder to kill. If possible, leave the screechers for last.

Lore

Screechers were human worshippers of a cult called Ra'Itha Va'Tuum, but instead of being rewarded they were instead tortured in the Citadel of Anguish for millennia. Frustration at being deceived caused them to mutate, turning their screams of anger into an intoxicating power desired by all other demons.
