Amphibious. The tako can breathe air and water.

Camouflage. The tako can change the color of its skin and mantle to match its surroundings, giving it advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks.


Multiattack. The tako makes three attacks; one with its handaxe, one with its spear, and one with its beak.

Beak. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage.

Constrict. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 7 (2d4 + 2) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 12). Until this grapple ends, the creature is restrained, and the tako can't constrict another target.

Handaxe. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60, one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) slashing damage.

Spear. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60, one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) piercing damage, or 6 (1d8 + 2) piercing damage if used with two hands to make a melee attack.

Hailing from the shores of Kara-Tur, the tako are a race of intelligent octopi who can move upon land and use weapons and other tools. Unlike their aqueus cousins however, the tako only have one golden eye centered in their head, though they still have a sharp beak resembling the bill of a parrot. They are known for being very territorial and for wielding a great variety of weapons simultaneously. Though normally docile, tako attack any creature who invades their territory. In addition, they have a strong sense of honor, and will avenge attacks and ally with members of other races who assist them.

Tako have no bones; their plump bodies are protected by a tough mantle of leathery skin, which they can change the color of to blend in with their surroundings or to speak their unique language, though the latter also involves the movement of its eight tentacles. When not hiding from monsters or to form an ambush, a mature male's natural color is light green, while a mature female's is orange-red. Young tako appear in a variety of colors, including black, brown, white, blue, and golden, but their color will eventually change to the standard of their sex once they reach adulthood.
