Death Leech

by John Walter Biles

Death Leeches are shapeshifting undead, able to take on the form of any humanoid undead creature. In their true form, they are a giant flattish translucent amoeba with 8 long tendrils. If slain in a shifted form, they retain it until touched, then collapse into their true form and swiftly rot. They typically take on their true form when they fight. They come from the planes of Entropy and often serve creatures of Entropy.
