Legends tell of an ancient cuttlefish man, a terrifying sea creature that surpassed all other forgotten beasts in both size and strength. This cuttlefish man was known to incite random fits of madness in nearby fortresses and to inspire dark cults to worship it. It is widely believed by these cults that this ancient cuttlefish man will rise from the ocean at the end of time, only to destroy all of civilization. Only time will tell if this is true, and whether any weapons of mortal man will be able to destroy such a creature. However, this dreaded creature is known to have one weakness, with which to drive it back to its home in the depths: the humble steam boat. Pray to Armok that boats are added to the game before this nightmare becomes a reality. This monstrosity lives in a legendary place, constructed with alien geometry, named R'lyeh.

Some elderly cuttlefish men have been observed aiding trainee squid men soldiers in their war against the octopus men.
