Giant Silverfish

Some silverfish can grow as large as a pig, particularly in magic colleges and ancient vault-libraries, where they terrify hapless students and destroy precious tomes. Popular academic lore attributes their unusual size to a steady diet of spellbooks.

A common pest with a silvery carapace and an undulating, fishlike scuttle, the nocturnal silverfish infests homes and libraries throughout Golarion. These insects aren't typically dangerous, but their tendency to devour books and clothing often puts them at odds with larger creatures.

Sidebar - Treasure and Rewards Silverfish Molts

In an interesting twist to the pest's life cycle, some spellcasters incorporate giant silverfish moltings into their spellbooks and scrolls. These shed skins have the consistency of onionskin and are valuable due to the superstition that they contain residual magic from texts the silverfish consumed. Regardless of whether a silverfish molt has any intrinsic magical power, many tenured mages feel that proof of a book-devouring vermin's demise is worthy of a reward. Thus, such a trophy is guaranteed to fetch a tidy sum from the right buyer.
