Iksloss Plague Weaver and Larvae by Methuselah3000 Iksloss Plague Weaver and Larvae by Methuselah3000
The iksloss are the spawn and servants of the Nether goddess Ikthaydris. Iksloss plague weavers gained their names from their detested tendency of transmitting deadly infections via their long proboscis. These noxious contagions can quickly sweep through the body of a man within the span of just a few hours. This flesh eating virus painfully consumes the body of its host and transforms the flesh into a horrid fungus growth. This fungus is what the iksloss use to feed their swarming larvae which nest in great hives deep within the damp earth.

Iksloss plague weavers stand approximately the height of a man. Their long powerful limbs allow them to traverse chaotic terrain with ease with extra balance gained from the flexible tentacles which sprout near their elbows. The fanlike wings of plague weavers allow them to glide swiftly towards their prey when perched in trees or atop a cliff. These wings also end with sharp talons which can prove deadly in combat, although these creatures prefer to kill by simply contaminating their victims with one single touch. Plague weavers lack eyes and rely solely on sonar and an extremely powerful sense of smell for precise navigation. They are also known for carrying their defenceless children with them by gripping them tightly with the clusters of tentacles that dangle below their pelvis.

Ikthaydris and her children constructed their foul temple-hive named Kulkersik in the hidden marsh country of Dwimergar. That temple was destroyed and the iksloss were slaughtered on that forgotten day ages ago when the warriors of Ludivok and Dyrth rose up to strike a blow against the dark beings of Nether with the celestial aid of the great Maker gods. Ikthaydris was destroyed that day and her beloved master Vaal'zakhuum was imprisoned deep below her demolished temple.

Has a pleasant Lovecraftian flavor to it.
