Mindflayers come from the Dark of the Underworld, far from the light of the sun. Their tentacled heads contain evil genius unmatched in any other of the world's races. Said to feed on the brains of the fallen, mindflayers are also reputed to gain psionic power by feeding thus. Mindflayers are highly magical, and can cast magics unknown to any other mortal.

Their voices are guttural, and they have a hard time pronouncing certain words.
