According to folklore, Drowned Ones are the fate that awaits those who curse the gods with their last breath after falling victim to Drogor's temper. Unholy forces lurking in the ocean snatch the god-forsaken corpses and puppeteer them to some wicked end. This bloated corpse in particular features a warped posture as if slain mid-transformation.
In the open sea beyond the Fang Cove, there lives a peculiar kind of parasitic jellyfish that induces unlife in its preferred hosts: warmblooded corpses. The creature is known to burrow deeply into the dead flesh, usually concealing itself until the cadaver is ruined -- at which time it vacates in its own dying spasms.
