An uchuulon, sometimes known as a slime chuul, was a chuul implanted with an illithid tadpole. They were used by illithids as hunters and guardians.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Uchuulons resembled ordinary chuuls, except for their slimy and mucous carapaces and sluggish movements. They were physically weaker than chuuls, but continuously excreted a paralyzing mucus.[1]

Ecology[edit | edit source]

When a chuul was implanted with an illithid tadpole, the resulting process was an incomplete form of ceremorphosis which invariably killed the tadpole, but that carried out a sufficient transformation on the host to render it more manageable to serve the mind flayers' purposes as lair guardians and hunters.[1]
