A scylla has the upper body of a beautiful woman, and a lower body of wolf heads and tentacles.
There are many conflicting accounts of the scylla's origin: the result of demonic flesh-crafting and arcane experiments, a curse handed down by a vengeful deity, or the monstrous spawn of a mortal and a god.
Scyllas dwell along major shipping lanes, often near coastlines, and lure entire ships to their doom. Though intelligent, they are consumed by hunger and self-loathing. They rarely use weapons, preferring to wield magic items on their two human-like hands.
