  • Amphibious. The Aquarian Queen can breathe air and water.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The Aquarian Queen’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 15, +7 to spell attacks). She can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Slippery. The Aquarian Queen has advantage on ability checks and saving throws made to escape a grapple.


  • Multiattack. The Aquarian Queen makes four tentacle attacks.
  • Tentacles. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d8 + 6) bludgeoning damage.
  • Ink Cloud (Recharges after a Short Rest). A 60-foot-radius cloud of ink extends all around her if she is underwater. The area is heavily obscured for 1 minute, although a significant current can disperse the ink. After releasing the ink, she can use the Dash action as a bonus action.


The cold, heartless leader of the aquarians is the Aquarian Queen. She rules with an iron fist and crushes any opposition by force. Her four tentacles are always busy grabbing objects and touching her surroundings.

Fish Queen. The queen lives in a massive sea cave. As she is one of the largest aquarians, her home is very spacious. She loves shiny, precious objects and hides them away in a large treasure vault.

Two Schools of Thought. A number of aquarians have left the sea to live on land amongst humans and other humanoids. However, the queen and most of the aquarian leadership are set against this. They want aquarians to live in the sea and remain part of their community.

Elite Entourage. A group of elite aquarian soldiers protects the queen. She also has a trio of coroctopi near her at all times. She has the support of most of her people, although this is based on fear.
