Summoned Daemon is a piece in the Chess Event in Karazhan that takes the place of a Rook for the Horde side. It is a reference to the daemon (see below) of the warlock units in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. The model used for this mob is that of a doomguard, which fits with speculation that the daemons of the first two Warcraft games are, in fact, ered'ruin.

Summon Daemon SpellEditThis section concerns content exclusive to Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (aka Warcraft I).
- The most powerful spell ever rumored to exist. Legends say that the caster would have the ability to summon forth a daemon by allowing his body to be sacrificed to enable its existence in this plane. The daemon would then be guided by the spirit of the caster to do his bidding, but should the daemon be destroyed, the warlock’s life would be forfeit. The truth to this tale is questionable, but the incantations and rituals used to summon the creature may lay in some lost runic writings. The dream of every follower of the underworld is to rediscover these incantations and be able to command the power of the daemon. ( )
