Site Title

Skum are misbegotten creatures created by aboleths to serve as beasts of burden and slaves. They are derived from human stock, making them even more loathsome.
Skum look exactly like what they are: an abominable crossbreed of human and fish. Their fins have grown into twisted arms and legs; their bent backs are crowned with a long, spiny frill. A slender, muscular tail makes them powerful swimmers, while bulbous eyes give them good vision both in and out of the water.
Skum can breathe both air and water. They speak Aquan.
