Quickstrike is possibly the last specimen of slug-like[1] creatures called gravecrawler or ancestor worms.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Qucikstrike has a gray, plump, segmented body with a hairless and eyeless man-like head. His physiology allows him a crawling movement only.[3] He is eminating an aura of petrification causing agony and paralysis in living creatures and turing any living or dead creature to stone in due time.[1]

HistoryEdit

He was left to guard the catacombs of a long gone kingdom that once existed in the Sunrise Mountains in Thay. The builder's of the catacombs were afraid of their dead to be raised as zombies. Quickstrike's duty was to petrify the corpses and make them impossible to reanimate as undead.[1] In the first years of his existence he ate the flesh of the corpses, absorbing their knowledge and wisdom.[4] In 1375 DR, the bard Bareris Anskuld stumbled upon Quickstrike during his escape from undead pursuers.[3]
