Despite its small size as a kraken, the Cephalopolop compensated with cunning, secrecy and ambition.
The Cephalopolop was a kraken from the seas of the surface until it arrived in Sloopdilmonpolop, where in time it assumed secret control of the kuo-toa.
For a long time, Cephalopolop plotted against a kraken that ruled the seas off the coasts of Calimshan. In 1363 DR, the Cephalopolop's plans were weakened when, in the Nelanther Isles, a third kraken killed and replaced the dragon turtle known as the Curse of Irphong. Now with two potential rivals, the Cephalopolop became more cautious.
