I wouldn't know. I just recently got into Legend and do not own that book or anything else Glorantha related. Glorantha just never seemed to spark my inspiration and stick with me.

I am gonna put my neck out and post some information of the description of Yrrigav from the C&M book.
Description: This foul being appears as a huge, muscular male Gorgon with large bat-like wings, and a long, barbed tail. He is 10' tall, and wields a flaming two-handed sword.
Lifestyle: Yrrigav is the least awesome of the three Demon Lords presented here, but is still extremely powerful. He is accompanied everywhere he goes by a Terrorite Demon, and many other servants. He has been known to ride a Dragon Construct as a mount. He claims no “sphere of influence” like the other two, but still commands respect and instills fear in all but the most powerful beings. His agenda is unknown, but one thing is certain—his power is growing.
That is the description from the book and like to keep it close to that. But some tweaking is allowed. For example I had no plans on using Terrorite Demons and Dragon Constructs in my campaign. But some other kind of Demonic follower and a Demonic Dragon to replace the construct.
Just need to take the Dragon from Monsters of Legend and slap on some chaotic features and voila a new appropriate dragon mount for Yrrigav. Was also thinking of replacing the Terrorite Demon with a Demonic Gorgon as servant (Gorgon with Chaotic Features slapped on). But all this is another topic, the stuff I need is input on was how to create a suitable cult for these fellas but hopefully now you have a better image of Yrrigav. Since he doesn't have a "sphere of influence" so his followers/cult should be quite easy to create. Was thinking about a cult/order that grants powers similar to what he can do. Many traits can be pulled from his physical description to find powers related to those. Flying (Bat Wings), making weapons burst into flames (flaming sword), inflict poisonous wound (barbed tail), cause fear (fearsome appearance) and boost STR (big muscles).
