A bodak is a human who was changed to a monster after venturing somewhere upon the Lower Planes where mortals were not meant to be. The evil of the human’s nature and the exposure to hellish substances triggered a terrible metamorphosis from man to bodak.
The sexless bodak has dark gray, pearly skin. The muscular body has no hair, and the head is long with oddly distorted features. The eyes are milky-white,vertical ovals of large size.
