Catabolignes are the living siege engines of the qlippoth.[1]


The cataboligne is a six-legged creature, with spiked clubs at each end of its body in place of heads or tails. A spiky growth sticks up from its back, and a mouth yawns in its belly and drools a terrible flesh-eating poison. A cataboligne is 30 feet tall and 40 feet long, and weighs 16 tons.[1]


A cataboligne can unleash a concentrated beam of entropic power from the spiky tree-like growth on its back, capable of turning all it touches to dust. Creatures that succumb to a cataboligne's horrific appearance feel as though their bodies were falling to pieces.[1]


Serving as siege engines, catabolignes rampage among demonic fortifications, unmaking everything in their path. For some reason, they are not hostile towards proteans, and the proteans in turn often merrily lead catabolignes on destructive sprees.[1]
