The imps are a mischievous and nefarious race of small, fiendish creatures. The simplest of the summoning spells a warlock can learn is that of the imp. Before they are imparted to this, they must prove that they have the necessary magical and physical ability.[1] Though it lacks physical strength, it possesses powers and a cleverness that serve warlocks well.[2] All imps however are afraid of rainbows.[3]

Fel imps, although very similar to normal imps, are a more powerful demon.

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It is possible, based on the body structure similarities, that imps were evolved from the grell species. In which case, they may have evolved into demons during or after the War of the Ancients, much like how some elves were evolved into satyrs.
