Skum appear to be monstrous humanoids; combining the physical characteristics of humanoids and various piscean creatures. They are loathed by other sentient species.

Aboleths will have a number of skum as minions to do their bidding. These wretched beings are evolved from humanoids that were transformed ages ago into a slave race for the aboleths. They obey their aquatic masters without question. Unlike the aboleths, skum are amphibious; being able to move freely outside of the water. As such, they enact their masters’ plans outside of their native environment.
