The Otyugh has a strangely alien appearance, with many eyes and tentacles. They are omnivorous scavengers, eating and living in piles of filth and carrion. But Otyughs will prey on fresh meat if the opportunity arises. Because of their filthy habitats, the bite of an Otyugh is truly gruesome, inflicting diseases and almost always infecting the wound. Next to their bite, their tentacles are just as dangerous. When in combat, an Otyugh will lash its tentacles everywhere, trying to latch their spines into the enemy. Another attack of the Otyugh is surprise. A Otyugh sits under a pile of trash, with its eye stalk resting above ground, then, when a victim walks near, the Otyugh leaps out of hiding and devours the victim.
