Ultros is an intelligent purple octopus-like creature that has the personality of a lecherous old man. His motives are often an enigma, showing up when least expected. He was first seen attacking adventurers in a river delta. Another time he attacked an opera house. Ultros was last seen selling tickets to a gladiatorial area where adventurers pit themselves against supernatural horrors.

Ultros attacks with six tentacles, using his other two to anchor himself. Each tentacles does 1d6 damage. If hit, opponents must save versus breath weapon or be grabbed by a tentacle and be pulled toward Ultros’s mouth. The tentacle’s grip with an 18/20 strength. Each tentacle has 10 hit points to severe and release an opponent. Ultros can also bite for 2d6 damage.

Ultros can spray a cone of black ink 60 foot long, toward opponents on land who must save versus breath weapon or be blinded for 1d3+1 rounds. In water, this ink produces a cloud 40 height by 60 feet wide by 60 feet long with obscures vision.

He also has the following spell-like abilities: haste, confusion, and Melf’s acid arrow. He can also regenerate 3 hit point per round, but takes double-damage from fire attacks. 

If reduced to 30 hit points or less, he retreats or somehow has an obscure death to return to attack the PCs in the future.
