The Sovereign of Wave and Whelm, The Devourer represents the raw destructive power of nature. The Devourer lords over the deep and as such sailors of all walks of life often pay him lip service for safe voyages. Aquatic races such as sahuagin and lizardfolk also revere the Devourer.
Brother of Arawai and Balinor, the Devourer raped his sister Arawai and fathered The Fury. The Devourer is portrayed as a human or merfolk with seaweed in his hair and beard, a sahuagin, an enormous shark, or a dragon turtle.
