Powers and Abilities

Scrags can fly telekinetically.

They can also fire high-pressure streams of acid.



These savage beasts are the result of mystical experimentation by Shub-Niggurath. As such, they are ubiquitous throughout Shub-Niggurath’s realms.


Scrags are vastly mutated humanoids. What used to be arms are now horned stumps and their legs converge into a tail. Their skin is translucent white and rubbery like a slug’s. Their heads merge directly into their shoulders with no visible neck.

Their yellowed red-pupiled eyes burn with rage and horror at the cruel fate that they have suffered. Scrags cannot move on the ground and instead float through the air with a terrible languid grace.

DC Universe History

Any malevolent mystical entity could seize control of a S.T.A.R. Labs teleportation experiment. These beats would haunt the invader’s dimension in great numbers, posing a great threat to unwary PCs.
