Details

A kraken can seem godlike to folk who have witnessed
its fury. Those who mistake its might for divine power
and those who seek to appease the monster through
veneration are sometimes rewarded with power, to
serve thereafter as kraken priests.
The kraken can make itself dimly aware of a kraken
priest's thoughts if the two are on the same plane of ex--
istence, and it can then push aside the priest's personality and control it. Kraken priests can thereby act as eyes
and ears for their masters, and when the kraken has
something to say, the priest becomes its mouthpiece.
Every kraken priest undergoes a change in appearance that reflects the kraken's influence, although each
one differs in how its reverence is displayed. One kraken
priest might have ink-black eyes and a suckered tentacle
for a tongue, while another has a featureless face and a
body covered in eyes and mouths that dribble seawater.
These horrific manifestations intensify when the kraken
possesses its minion to utter its dire pronouncements.
