When a deep one hybrid finally undergoes the change, it transforms in a painful but mercifully swift series of mutations into a deep one scion. Humanoids who undergo this change are usually indistinguishable from full-blooded deep ones, but other creatures that become deep one scions can take a wide range of unpleasant and disturbing forms.
