Inktober Monstrosities: Q for Quasielemental (Lightning)

No comments
Q was an especially difficult letter to find a monster for, so the solution became the Lightning Quasielemental, and even that by stretching it a bit. Quasielementals are composite or near elementals that don't fit snugly into the classical distinction of the four base elements.

The lightning quasielemental first appeared as the only quasielemental in the Monster Manual II for first edition AD&D, and then again, this time along with the whole family in the third Monstrous Compendium for the Planescape setting for second edition.

For those interested, the whole family of quasielementals are divided into positive and negative , and include the ash, dust, salt, vacuum, lightning, mineral, radiance and steam elementals.
