Skreesires are insidious horrors that
lurk in the rocky reaches of the
universe. They are omnivorous and
consume all manner of matter, but they prefer the same
diet of plants that sustains and empowers their progeny—
nasty winged creatures known as skreelings (see page 56).
Skreesires round bodies are bulky and intimidating. Their
wings are nonfunctional, and they use their tentacles for
grabbing prey. They stand up to 10 feet tall and weigh up to
500 pounds.

Unlike their young, skreesires live solitary lives and
are fiercely protective of their territories, even from other
skreesires. They view any intrusion from a sentient creature
as a threat, and thus they often use their infamous mental
abilities to twist intruders’ minds and cause those creatures
to flee. If that fails, they descend on the trespasser with teeth
and tentacles.

Skreesires are hermaphroditic and can self-fertilize,
though they usually do so only after particularly large
feasts, as extra genetic material they harvest from their
food helps to mitigate the effects of inbreeding. They tend
to lay their clutches of eggs in the corpses of the creatures
they have just fed upon, but they use soft sand or tangles
of vines if needed.
