    Default Need help finding a creature

    Trying to find a creature that I once saw, it's a jet black aberration with 3 eyeless mouths, I remember reading about it and thinking "that's going to be great in my next game" but unfortunately I can't find it again, any help would be appreciated. I'm pretty sure it was a creature from 4th edition d&d or 3.5/pathfinder.

    Well, since I didn't have it open already, it's not in Monster Manual 3 for D&D 3.5.

    We're not talking about a displacer beast, are we? Those spikes on its tentacles look a bit like mouths in some versions.

    It looked vaguely ooze-like hovering in the air with three seperate mouths protruding from a central mass. The head/mouths were smooth oval shaped like the xenomorphs from Alien.

    Sounds like the sharn.
    Like most monsters in D&D it's from well before 3.x.

    The Overseer from Lords of Madness is also black and also has three mouths:

    Spoiler: Overseer
    Show


    Like the Sharn - its eyes are not close to each mouth. The Sharn's eyes are in the palm of each hand, the Overseer's eyes are on stalks way above the mouths.

    The above description

    does fit the Sharn a bit better than the Overseer though.
