A dybbuk resembled a jellyfish with a simply sketched human face. Dybbuks could possess and control dead bodies, so they spent a lot of time looking for a "perfect" host body to animate—one that died without violence or major injury, and preferably one that was handsome or beautiful. After taking the control of a perfect body, dybbuks would try to insert themselves into the society of the victim, plunging into depravity and hedonism until their possessed body broke down and was ruined. When a perfect body was not available, a dybbuk would take a less desirable body and continue to search for a better host. Dybbuks were lonely creatures, and could be found in groups only where there were many corpses to possess, such as on a recent battlefield. They tended to avoid undead, because already-animated bodies were of no use to them.
