Multilimbed denizens of the ocean, sea monks prove a constant annoyance to peaceful fishermen and intrepid adventurers alike. They have large "wings," which appear to be nothing more than fins, but, amazingly, they are able to float above surfaces. Carnivorous by nature, it's no wonder that they are often seen attacking ferry riders, fishermen, and parties that they float upon. Sea Monks appear in two colors, a yellow species and an azure species, but both share the same characteristic stripes across their bodies.
With so many limbs at their disposal, Sea Monks prove formidable combatants. They have moderate control over water, but rely mostly on their physical prowess. It should be noted that sea monks are also capable of regeneration as well as shooting out blinding ink from their beaks.
Before any of you adventurers pick up your utensils for some fresh calamari, be aware that you won't be finding anything edible on these oversized sea creatures. Flesh from sea monks doesn't appear to be anywhere near edible, but their skin is sometimes used by leathercrafters for specialty items. Other than the random seashell, you won't find much of use or value on them. Interestingly though, several notorious sea monks are known to drop very rare weapons, including a legendary club that mimics their eight-armed combat style.
The sea monk was a sea monster found off the coast of Denmark almost certainly in 1546. It was said to be a "fish" that looked superficially like a monk. It was described and pictured in the fourth volume of Conrad Gesner's famous Historia Animalium.
