In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, the gathra is an extraplanar magical beast. They dwell on Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells of Baator.


Gathra are dangerous pack animals which hunt down and devour any creature unlucky enough to be caught in the open. Devils sometimes use them as mounts.


Though predominantly found on Avernus in Baator, gathra can also be found underground on the Material Plane.

Typical physical characteristics[]

Gathra resemble a blend of boar and bull. They have the body of a huge, black, ugly, fiendish bovine, with a boar-like head. They have an enormous pair of horns which curve inwards on each other, and two lower tusks which stick straight up and give the impression of large, upside-down sabre-like teeth.


Gathra, being natives of Baator, are lawful evil in alignment.

Creative origins[]

Gathra appeared in the 3rd Edition Fiend Folio.
