The first arrow demons came about in the Demon Spawn War. They were created from expert goblin archers captured from the Orulûn Divison. This unit was part of the Quara'tun Covenant military forces, and greatly feared by their demon foes. Those goblins that were captured by the demons were taken back to the Abyss and tossed in spawning vats. In these vats they were mixed with abyssal energies. The result after several dozen deaths was the creation of a four armed demon humanoid with an innate ability to fire two bows at once with superb skill.
