Girsh Shug'ruith the Burrower

A creature of immensity mounts the upper eyeline. Tunnel-steeled rings of extruded wormgut belch shale dust like cavern rain, and a colony of starspines grow across its sloping world-back. In a wreath around its pitting mouth, a hundredish eyes have grown to drink every photon out the jeweled and sunless haunts of yesterearth. Finally, irisdual light churning under its tx-glass skin is filtered to a smoke and citrine hue and radiates out of body in lituus spirals.
