Utukkus are a race of shapechanging qlippoth that build cults to remove sinful souls from the cycle of mortal life.[1]


In its true form, an utukku looks like a 7-foot-tall, 200-pound-heavy scaled humanoid with a single eye where a face should be, surrounded by wriggling tendrils. Its arms are sucker-tipped tentacles.[1]


When an utukku attacks a humanoid, it siphons away some of the victim's humanity, leaving it warped and deformed. It can falsely replicate the granted powers of two domains as if it were a cleric.[1]


An utukku teaches its followers that they will be rewarded not via transformation into an outsider, but by assimilation into the Great Beyond itself. After death and Pharasma's judgement, the souls of an utukku's cultists are converted into quintessence that then merges with and bolsters the Abyss instead of becoming petitioners, denying the demons a soul that they can use to create more of their kind.[1]

Some utukkus are employed by thulgants to collect preserved victims from the Material Plane or other Abyssal realms.[2]
