“Its ravenous hunger is not blunted by the lack of a mouth, and this fact makes the spectacle of a golothoma feeding frenzy all the more horriﬁc.”-From the Demonomicon of Iggwilv
Anatomy & Morphology
A golothoma has a vaguely serpentine body, although its ﬂanks bulge in odd places and horns protrude from random locations along its knotted length. Its tail rises up into the air like a scorpion’s, and even without a stinger it drips with black, steaming acid. The creature’s face is little more than a single yellow snake’s eye. Arrayed around this eye in a radial pattern are its ﬁve insectoid arms, each with three joints and covered with horns and ridges. Each arm ends in a nest of talons and claws. The creature’s shadow is misshapen and doesn’t match its body.
Ecology and Habitats
As a demon, Golothomas are found, and only live in the The Abyssal Realms usually found in the deeper lairs of the demonic hordes.
Dietary Needs and Habits
As normal for demons, Demons do not need to eat, however, they can consume endless amounts of food if they desire, and particularly enjoy eating sacrifices.
Geographic Origin and Distribution
In the The Abyssal Realms the Golthomas are usually found on the 177th layer.
Average IntelligenceGolthomas are not particularly intelligent creatures. They know when to fight, when to run, and a little smattering of words in Abyssal.
Although golothomas understand a few words in Abyssal, they are only barely intelligent enough to belch them out in a mockery of conversation. They are hardly more than horriﬁc predators driven only by a ceaseless hunger to feed, not from any biological requirement but from a deeper need simply to consume the bodies of other creatures.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Golothoma have the capabilities to see normally, but also has the magical ability to see through any illusion, on how things truely are and not how they appear to be.
