Illithids, or "mind flayers", as they are known, are mysterious beings
with extraordinary mental powers. They are the dimensional travelers, and
are rumored to have traveled to Erion from dimensions with unutterable
Illithids are cold, logical and calculating. They do not often show
emotion, unless it is the grim satisfaction in utterly dominating an enemy.
They are wholly evil and manipulative, using their keen intellect to
overcome their overall physical weakness. They possess many great secrets,
and would use their powers to enslave an entire race, if need be. Some say
that to trust an Illithid is to court death.
Illithids are bipedal humanoids with heads that could only be described as
squid‑like. Their skin is smooth, slimy and grayish, and they have
tentacles that hang down the front of their face. Their eyes are unnerving,
with pale, milky globes that seem to bore right into the mind of an
observer. When an illithid speaks, it is with an otherworldly voice. They
are often in conflict with the drow and duergar, their traditional
competitors for space in the underworld.
