Humanoid in shape, this gaunt, hairless creature has mottled gray skin, a hunched posture, and long, dangerous-looking talons for hands. Its face is a thing out of a nightmare, a flattened octopoid head with four long, writhing tentacles where the mouth should be. Its colorless eyes glitter with feral hunger.

Vampiric mind flayers are enigmas. Their origins are unknown, as they cannot spawn other vampires. They need both fresh blood and fresh brains to survive. Furthermore, they are feral, unreasoning killers, with no hint of the formidable intellect they possessed in life. Whatever process transforms a mind flayer into a vampiric state also destroys its rationality.

An illithid vampire presents a dire threat to any living thing it encounters. Its hunger for blood and brains is limitless and beyond reason. While it lacks the cold genius it once possessed, the creature is astoundingly cunning, and its inventiveness is marched only by its savagery.

A vampire mind flayer is a unique and specific form of undead more like a wight or a wraith than a vampire. It is not derived from adding the vampire template to a mind flayer.
