These bottom-dwelling sea creatures are dangerous only to their prey. If disturbed, they usually try to escape. An octopus can emit a cloud of jet-black ink ten feet high by ten feet wide by ten feet long once per minute. The cloud provides total concealment, which the octopus normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured. An octopus can jet backward at great speed, moving in a straight line. An octopus can change colors, allowing it hide. An octopus also can squeeze and contort its body to escape threats. The ink from octopi is used for writing.
It is speculated that octopus were created by the Old Gods.
