Ravenous from the very second of their birth, Vile Children are disgusting, fleshy, legless beasts that wriggle across the planes of Hell at alarming speed, propelling themselves forward with their two arms. These fetid beasts swarm to any potential food source. Unfortunately, for their victims, this is usually an adventurer who has strayed too far from the safety of the Pandemonium Fortress. A single Vile Child is no threat to anyone tough enough to brave the pits of Hell, but a wall of them can pose a threat to an adventurer.
Vile Children appear in Act IV and play a minor role at the beginning of Act III, where they are spawned by the Dark Wanderer. They move with great speed towards their enemies. They have a melee attack that isn't too harmful, however, Vile Children rarely appear alone. They are fragile and are easily slain, but attack in hordes.
