This gigantic, mauve worm has a hooked mouth with multiple circular bands of teeth and four barbed tongues. A wielder of terrible occult powers and a vast alien intellect, the neothelid serves the ageless horrors that dwell in strange dimensions beyond known reality—the Outer Gods and Great Old Ones of the Elder Mythos. Neothelids pass down these mysteries to the eerie wormlike creatures they spawn and create in preparation for a future where the worms below shall rule—a time when all other life is nothing more than food.

Sidebar - Locations Denebrum

Most neothelids on Golarion reside in the Vault of Derebrum, deep within the Darklands. Here, in a vast cavern of fetid pools of stinking swamps and surreal forests of poisonous fungi, neothelid hives nestle among twisted spires of hardened resin that look as horrific as the monstrous worms themselves. Tended by armies of worm-like minions who worship them as gods, they endlessly plot, scheme, and wage war.
