Bestiary‎ > ‎(Bestiary) By Type‎ > ‎Aberrations‎ > ‎


This vaguely humanoid creature has a head that resembles a large jelly fish. Extending down from its large head is a manlike torso and arms that again change into a long knot of feathery writhing tentacles which it uses as a means of propulsion beneath the waves. Its lower torso is a mass of writhing and twitching tentacles.
