The jermlaine is a monster that first appeared in SLASH 6, the precursor to SLASH'EM. It is not part of NetHack 3.4.3. Code for the monster appears in the source for SLASH'EM, but the code is commented out, making it a deferred feature.
The jermlaine is a weak creature with a single melee attack. A single jermlaine is relatively harmless, but the large groups of jermlaine which usually appear are a bigger threat.
Jermlaine come from D&D. They are small, humanoid fey creatures that dwell underground.
