Baatamidars are drawn to destroy planar communities on the fringes where the Outer Planes touch the chaos of the Maelstrom. They resemble floating blobs of undulating, prismatic ooze with four quivering tentacles and dribbles of oily slime that always drip upwards.

Baatamidar represent a tangible and imminent crisis to planar communities. When a baatamidar drifts into a region, locating and defeating it becomes a top priority for leaders of any alignment. Thus, celestial and infernal commanders alike make defeating baatamidars a priority, sometimes even joining together to exterminate the common threat.
