These serpentine demons are Belial's favored servants, and he has granted them some of his skill in cunning and illusion. Deceivers will cloak themselves in the familiar forms of their enemy's companions and friends, waiting to strike when the moment is opportune. It is only then that their true forms are revealed.

Deceivers are annoying creatures that can easily kill the unprepared. Not only do they hit hard and fast, but will Cloak when not near their target removing any advantage from using range attacks against them. They can spawn in huge packs in some areas so care must be taken.

Despite sharing a serpentine resemblance to Claw Vipers from Diablo II, they are unrelated in any way. Claw Vipers are animal like creatures with origins that may have come from Demonic magic. Deceivers are the Demon servants of the lesser evil Belial and likely served him in the burning Hells before coming to Sanctuary.
