The sahuagin, also called sea devils and devil men of the deep, are a fish-like monstrous humanoid species.
Sahuagin are marine predators superbly adapted to their niche. They venture ashore on moonless nights to plunder coastal towns.
Sahuagin are egg-laying creatures, with multiple hatchlings the rule. They fertilize internally and hatch after three months. Hatchlings are around ten inches long at birth and eat voraciously. The sea devils deal very harshly with offspring who are not robust or aggressive enough -- they are eliminated by compulsory fighting to the death between young sahuagin. Sahuagin seem fixated on all aspects of consumption, and are eager to weed out anything they see as weak or unworthy to compete for resources. Savage fighters, sahuagin ask for and give no quarter. When swimming, a sahuagin is able to tear with its sharp feet, using them as weapons. About half of any group of sahuagin are also armed with nets, and many also wield spears or tridents.
