|First appearance||Monstrous Compendium Planescape Compendium III (1998)|
In the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the belker is an elemental creature with a body composed mainly of smoke from the Elemental Plane of air.
The belker first appeared in second edition for the Planescape campaign setting in Monstrous Compendium Planescape Compendium III (1998).
In the Dungeons & Dragons game, a belker's body is composed primarily of smoke, ash and grit. It is bean shaped, with a wisp of steam for a tail, demonic looking bat's wings, red eyes, and two smoggy arms with claws.
Though belkers in the game are undeniably evil, they are reclusive and have very little interest in the affairs of others. If angered, however, it attacks without mercy. Sometimes, it attacks with its teeth and claws, and can blind opponents with its stinging ash, but there is another way. If a person inhales a belker, it solidifies and tears them apart from the inside. Coughing one back up is the only way to escape this horrible death. Most of the time the belker has a solid form, but it can assume a smoke form at a whim, allowing it to be inhaled for the inside attack, and to fly more easily.
The belker appeared in Paizo Publishing's book Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary 2 (2010), on page 45.
