Cloakers are intelligent creatures who dwell underground and resemble large flying manta rays when active. At rest, they look like a black cloak, hence their name.[3] Although they are usually found in a flock of twelve or fewer individuals they are thought to have built the Underdark city Ikemmu[4]

Cloakers often wait in ambush for their prey and generally attempt to engulf an opponent with their wings. They also have the ability to emit a subsonic moan which can cause fear or nausea in opponents and can shift shadows to conceal themselves or create a mirror image.[3]


Cloakers are strange and mysterious aberrations that dwell in the dark and shadowed places of the world. They often make their home in the realm below the surface of the world, where they can use their abilities to manipulate shadows and produce terrifying moans to their greatest effect.

Much like their namesake, cloakers appear to be cloak-shaped creatures. Their bodies, when unfurled are like those of a manta ray, but when relaxed, they appear to be a black cloak. The ivory talons at the ends of their wings even appear to be clasps. Cloakers will often use this disguise to surprise potential prey. The average cloaker has an 8-foot wingspan and weighs about 100 pounds.

Cloakers are xenophobic and reclusive. They are reputed to worship ancient Elder Evils and noisome Old Gods. The goals of the cloakers are unknown, but these creatures are undeniably evil and seek to eliminate mortals from the world.[citation needed]
