The Ytibbrikee is a nightmarish Cthulhuan offshoot dwelling just about in any plane. Their political ties are cloudy, having common interests with demons and devils as much as they have with the Old Ones. They are infrequently seen alone, and are either in the company of lesser Cthulhi (such as Byakhees or possibly Shoggoths) when on the Prime, or with assemblages of planar natives otherwise.

These nightmarish beings resemble bovines as much as they do spiders, Pit Fiends, and Wyverns mixed into one horrendous form. Their ten-foot tentacles lash out with barbed-wire deadliness (2-12 each), choking or otherwise tearing flesh terribly for double damage on "to hit" rolls of 18 or better. Otherwise it bears down with its scorpion-like tail (2-20), attacking with it as a 16HD monster, and injecting deadly nerve toxins into the afflicted. The poisonous substance causes instant death unless a save is made, not even allowing time for a CURE spell to be cast.

The gaze of an Ytibbrikee causes either FEAR, STUN, CHARM, SLEEP, or any other mind-based attack which might suit the situation. In addition, its optical acuteness affords it a natural state as the spell TRUE SEEING. These are magical beings, only hit by +2 or better magical weapons.

All victims of the Ytibbrikee are devoured without a trace, and it would sooner kill itself than bargain with anyone. The monster prefers anonymity and will tirelessly pursue anyone who has seen it.
