37 NEISS'S ROOM. Neiss, an unusually large fangtooth fishman, makes his lair here.
Neiss, Unpopular Fangtooth Fish Man (AC 3; MV 9”//18”; HD 5+5; hp 36; #AT 2 claws and 1 bite; D 1-8/1-8/2-16; XP 366)
He is disliked by the other fangtooths due to his cannibalistic tendencies. He wears a huge gold torc with a black pearl inset (4500 gold crescent value).
Despite how he appears, Neiss is actually exceptionally intelligent and can be reasoned with if approached from a position of strength. While not quite a leader, he was previously very influential in the fishman community (such as it is) before the arrival of Slackenslav (Room 41), who displaced him. He hates Slackenslav and covets her staff. He also desires to kill and eat her.
