Turaglas is a horror without fixed shape, an enormous tide of viscous flesh replete with a hundred mouths of every shape and size. Its form constantly shifts and moves, and ranges from flesh-pink to sickly green to the pallid gray of a rotting corpse. Those unfortunate enough to stare into one of its gaping maws see nothing but teeth of bone and iron and an endless corridor of blood and blackened flesh. Turaglas is the grotesque embodiment of the Abyss's chaotic fury and ravening hunger.
Lo, here I stand upon Abyssal verge, bottomless vast that would all things consume. Batten it upon all life, all light, all souls, still never be it slaked. An eternal hunger that can never die, into far worlds it reaches, always seeking, ever feasting. Cry "Demon!" Cry "Devourer!" Cry "Ebon Maw!" Name it as you will, it heeds not your names. He needs only you, and yours, and all your world. Eternal hunger that can never die, never be it slaked. For it is the Abyss, and it is he, and all that is, is naught but its provender.
