These creatures are the result of the unnatural fusion between a humanoid and a velvet worm. While quite powerful, the terripatus moves at a careful, sloth-like pace, preferring to hang by its clawed arms from branches or scaffolding and wait patiently for prey to come within range of its poisonous glue streams. Living to be several hundred years old, these creatures project an air of serenity, sage wisdom and a oneness with nature even as it slaughters prey. Depending on the species of worm used and the temperament of the individual, they may hunt alone or in social groups of up to fifteen individuals, usually closely related, which will typically live and hunt together.

Terripatus skin is quite strong, but with a soft, velvety texture and quite valuable when molted. Terripatus skin robes, capes and scarves are even enjoyed by the monsters themselves.
