Mind Flayer Race

From DDO Compendium


Mind flayers, also known as illithids, are evil and sadistic aberrations, feared by sentient creatures on many worlds across the multiverse due to their powerful innate psionic abilities. Dwellers of deep Underdark areas, these alien humanoid-looking beings seek to expand their dominion over all other creatures, controlling their minds to use them as hopeless slaves and devouring their brains for sustenance.

Their natural psionic abilities also make mind flayers respected in the eyes of the drow, beholders, duergar, and other dominant races of the Underdark.

Mind flayers are humanoid in appearance but with an octopus-like, ridged head with four tentacles surrounding a lamprey-like mouth. They are warm-blooded amphibians, whose blood had a silvery-white color.

Their hands have long, reddish fingers and lacked the index finger, and their feet are two-toed and webbed. Mind flayer eyes are extremely sensitive to bright light, and they considered it painful.

Mind flayers that are healthy from brain-rich diets excreted a kind of slimy mucous substance that coated their mauve skins.
