These invertebrate parasitic relatives of the worm lurk in stagnant or slow-moving water, waiting for a suitable host. Giant leeches appear as larger versions of the common leech.

A giant leech attacks any living creature that comes within 30 feet of it. There is a 50% chance that any leech encountered carries filth fever.
