The sqoods were born from me not being able to control my tongue and saying sqood in place of something else. Sqoods live in clutches, led by a queen. They eat magic, are intelligent enough to use magic themselves, and are nearly immune to magical attacks. Some sqoods have the ability to teleport great distances, and sqood clutch queens are able to turn themselves invisble. Wizards, sorcerers and many types of magical beasts can find themselves the target of a sqood clutch hungry for magic. Sqoods are not malicious or naturally aggressive, but they fail to understand that most other creatures don't have their natural resistance to magic and so can be quite easily killed.A wizard, if capable enough, can keep a sqood as a familiar, provided that the sqood doesn't accidentally eat the wizard's spellbook or staff. Dragons have been known to place sqoods as guardians of magical treasure troves, though the sqoods may get out of hand and simply devour the hoard.In short, don't mess with the sqood.
