|gelapod anatomy chart
|| A drawing of a gelapod with all both eyestalks splayed covers this chart. Overlaid on the figure is a proportions grid demonstrating body relationships. Detailed cutaway illustrations scattered around the main drawing show different levels of exoskeleton and viscera from various parts of the body. Small notations beside each body part offer a short description.
Read: Close cousin to the glutinous lipopod, this gelapod has risen slightly higher on the evolutionary ladder. Carnivorous by nature, it has developed a series of sharp, razor-like teeth, which effectively shred the gelapod's victims. Primitive eyes on short stalks protruding from either side of its gelatinous forehead give it a deceptively docile appearance, like that of a slug. Surviving predominantly in still, brackish waters, it will often infiltrate the moats and streams surrounding abandoned castles. Despite a lack of vocal cords, the gelapod manages to emit a primitive, pulsing, thumping sound. It does this by manipulating several small portions of its body into air pockets, which it then squeezes with a kind of shivering motion.
