The darkmantle appeared in the fourth edition Monster Manual 2 (2009).
A darkmantle resembles something akin to a dark brown colored squid, roughly 4 feet long, with webs of membrane between the tentacles. Its part is shelled, and it has a muscular "foot" on the top of it. Though darkmantles have eyes, they "see" by using echolocation, much the way a bat does. Using a mixture of telekinetic ability and the flapping of its webbed tentacles, it can perform low level flying.
Habitat and society
The darkmantle attacks by attaching itself to the ceiling of a cave and disguising itself as a stalactite. It waits until someone is underneath, and then drops down, wrapping its tentacles around the head of the victim. It smothers them, and then proceeds to eat them from a mouth located under its head. Darkmantles also have an offensive/defensive ability in the ability to suck the light out of an area.
Darkmantles cannot speak.
They are neutral in alignment.
