Blaad' Os (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The ogre traveled down the path, laughing at smaller creatures and confident he would pillage the next small village.
"You won't get to our town!" A small goblin said, "We have a guardian!"
"Oh, and who is this gauwdian?" The ogre asked in a mocking tone as he strangled the squirming goblin.
"Over----th-ere!" The goblin choked out.
The guardian looked like a small squid in the distance.
"Ha ha! And dat is yow puny gawdian?? HA HA HA H- uh...," The ogre was cut short.
"Say another word and I'll eat your head whole!" The cephalopod-like thing said telepathically in a gurgly, raspy voice.
A Blaad'O surrounds itself in light and teleports behind the orc chieftain, then stabs him straight through the middle. He falls over, and the other orcs turn around surprised. The Blaad'O then proceeds to raise a small blue chunk of a slug, an orb of acid emitting from it. All the orcs disintegrate into ash as the Blaad'O rolls away, nearly unscathed.
As the warrior squids fend off the quadrones, the high priestess summons a swarm of insects. They quickly devour the quadrones whole, as well as the Blaad'O. She walks into the temple, sad about the outcome, but resumes her usual temple prayer.
Blaad' Os are a race of humanoid squid with three glowing red eyes on their face. Their head looks like the head of a large, fat squid. They have a curved, fat body and strong, floppy arms with small, sharp tentacles for fingers at the ends of their arms. Rather than normal legs, they have rubbery trunk-like tentacles that are thicker than the others which have the structure to allow them to stand upright. On their face is some mouth tentacles that obscure their beak of a mouth. The skin of a blaad'o is always slimy with special mucus, and it comes in a variety of colors. Because blaad'os do not have traditional skeletal structures, they can squeeze into spaces other creatures their size have trouble with. But they remain quite large and meaty, and can be taller than a human on average.
The history of this race is shrouded in secrecy. Only through hushed whispers in dark places do you hear mentions of the terrible Underdark experiments that illithids performed to create these horrid guardians from the deep. Although their exact history isn't clear, what is known is awful and full of torture to harmless animals and people. They are a race spawned from evil and malice and that is enough history for most who choose to avoid these hulking beasts. Despite the evil of their original creators, blaad'os manage to remain somewhat morally upright, even if they are very angry people in general.
Blaad' Os live in what they call "Gathks", which have 5 leaders, and 2 "subleaders." These Gathks are akin to villages. There are rumoredly 20 Gathks in total, scattered around the world. Each of the 20 villages has fifteen healers, and 20-30 warriors. Healers are typically female blaad'os and warriors are usually male. This extends into their preference for jobs and classes, but is not binding by any means. Blaad'Os have some religiosity remaining from their time under the illithids. They worship a god which is a rumored cephalopod being from the Far Plane. This deity is supposedly a conjuration of their festering hatred from their experimentation. It is unknown if this is a malevolent curse.
