An ogre mage scion of Kyuss is an intelligent, evil foe. It excels in cruelty and cunning. About 10 feet tall, an ogre mage scion of Kyuss looks like a rotting zombie festooned with worms and maggots. The jet black skin that the creature had in life looks a putrescent gray-green and its dark eyes burn with malevolence. Ogre mage scions of Kyuss speak Giant and Common.
