Quelaunts are aberrations that feed on negative emotions and are known to associate with the Dominion of the Black creatures, like jah-tohls.12


Quelaunts have no discernible facial features. Their three arms and legs are distributed evenly across their body, making it impossible to determine a quelaunt's orientation.12


A quelaunt attacks groups in a whirlwind of its three claws or, alternatively, with emotion-associated spells, with the added affect of planting seeds of negative emotions in a victim that remove feelings of hope or positivity. While under any kind of emotional unrest, the quelaunt can feed on it from a short distance, leaving the prey mentally damaged and the quelaunt reinvigorated.12

A quelaunt is itself very resistant to having its own mind affected, especially its own emotions.12


Quelaunts sow negative emotions upon their prey, revelling in and feasting on them, gaining strength and sustenance from their suffering. The more the prey suffers, the more the quelaunt feeds, and no act is too depraved for quelaunts.12

It is theorized that quelaunts hail from a dimension of pure thought and feeling, and they have no physical body in their natural state. Few dare research further: the only person known to have performed an autopsy on a quelaunt committed suicide a few days later, and all the notes were mysteriously destroyed.12
