Search for 'Zalkor' on Amazon
An immensely power creature of unknown origin, it granted great power to a single being (its Kalorian), in exchange for that being feeding it the leaves of the beta-metaphysical plant-drug Skrimblatt. The Zalkor itself was addicted to Skrimblatt, but it was essentially immobile and could not feed itself. However, beyond this one limitation, it could apparently grant any ability to its Kalorian, though that being lost his soul in the process. The Zalkor and the Kalorian were bonded in a bizarre union in which both were master and slave. It could not recognize its Kalorian if that being possessed a soul.
In the distant past it was worshipped by the Zalgodian race, and it lived aboard an immense satellite orbiting an unnamed red planet. The Zalgodians mysteriously perished, and the Zalkor was left alone for centuries until being found by Abyss, who became its next Kalorian. Abyss transported the Zalkor to the belly of his palace, but after Abyss' banishment, it begged in vain for someone to bring it some Skrimblatt.
The Zalkor's might faded the farther he or his agent ventured from their own reality.
