Krakens is a large, ocean-dwelling magical beast. They are akin to squids except larger in size, almost 80' long; they have a similar body, with a ring of tentacles surrounding a mouth connected to a conical central body. Two of its ten tentacles are longer than the rest and have deadly barbs. The kraken has very large eyes, and fins protrude from the upper part of its elongated central body.
Krakens cannot speak the languages of surface dwelling races, but might speak Aquan, or a language of their own similar to that of whales.
Krakens are highly destructive and evil creatures. With their strong tentacles and massive strength, they can pull an entire ship down into the ocean. They have often completely wiped tropical islands of all life, and deep beneath the ocean, they have cavernous lairs where they breed human slaves to feed and tend them. Krakens were supposedly once the rulers of the sea, but eventually the forces of good drove them back, though legends say they will one day rise again. Krakens attack predominantly with their tentacles. They can both constrict opponents, and bring them into the reaches of the creature's huge jaws. In addition, Krakens can also release an enormous cloud of jet-black ink, regenerate severed limbs, and can even cast spells.
