Kuo-toa (pronounced: /kˈtɑːkoo-o-TO-a[5]) were a debased monstrous humanoid fish-like race that dwelt in the Underdark. They had human-like bodies and fish-like heads.[6]

ReligionEdit

Most kuo-toa worshiped the goddess Blibdoolpoolp,[7] though a few remote tribes worshiped Demogorgon.[8] Blibdoolpoolp was the focus of the kuo-toas' lives,[7] and even had her own monstrous, deformed kuo-toa breed: the giant kuo-toa leviathan.[9]

SocietyEdit

Their priests could cast magic, due to the fervent belief they held in their gods manifesting itself into raw power.[1] "Whip" was the name given to clerics of Blibdoolpoolp.[10] "Monitor" was the name given to those that had trained to fight with nothing but their bodies since birth.[11]

Kuo-toa were antagonistic with almost every other subterranean race and all surface dwellers. They had no qualms about kidnapping others and sacrificing them to their gods or using them as slave labor. However, the benefits of trade made them willing to deal with anyone that could provide goods and services that they desired. The exception to this was mind flayers and their allies; kuo-toans invariably attacked them without warning.[12]

One of their cities was Sloopdilmonpolp, the City of Pools.[13][14] Others were Looblishar[15] and Olleth.[16]

Kuo-toa almost never wore armor, as they disliked the feel of it on their bodies.[citation needed]
