A magically created and animated plant once used in religious and medicinal rituals by a tropical civilization, the nepenthereal has long since escaped into the wild and begun reproducing. It exudes a poisonous pheromone, which it can manipulate to form weak appendages or surprisingly detailed images and shapes. Although not directly carnivorous, the heads of prey are held in its body pouch, where they ferment and decay to produce nutrients which feed the nepenthereal.
