Source: Underdark (p.35)
Illithid Body Tamers follow a discipline called the "Tamer Creed" which says that only a potent military force will ensure Illithid society's future existence. They maintain that only by abstaining from psionics will they strengthen their considerably frail bodies sufficiently enough to become accomplished fighters.
- Code of Mental Abstinence
- By training the body for combat and forgoing the use of their psionic abilities, Illithid Body Tamers can actually improve the fortitude of their bodies. Needless to say, such a payoff is valuable for a race of admittedly physically weak individuals.
- Strength of Arms
- An Illithid Body Tamer can use both its tentacles and its weapon to make a devastating attack against its opponent.
- Death Whirlwind
- An Illithid Body Tamer can psionically power a whirlwind attack, which can potentially kill its opponent instantly.
