The Choremonster

The Choremonster's natural gargles, wails, and hoots inadvertently sound like the shouts of an angry old crone, yelling for you to "Pick up your clothes! Mop the floors! Wash the dog! etc". When villagers hear these calls, they immediately follow the instructions as a sort of homage or offering for fear that the wrath of the Choremonster will come down upon them otherwise. For this reason, the Choremonster might be the only demon to leave not death and destruction in its wake but the cleanest, most quaint villages that you might ever come across. It is said that, "He who can ride the Choremonster lives a life free from its calls to hard labor."
