A big yellow slaad... my, what won't they think of next!
~ Vrock's Final Words

She floats freely in the roiling chaos-stuff of Limbo, a huge golden amoeba devouring anything that comes too close.
~ Dragon #221


Ssendam is the Lord of Madness and the oldest, most powerful Slaad in existence. As such, she is formed completely from the chaos of Limbo, floating through the cosmological entropy of Limbo, absorbing everything it comes into contact with. It is said her own sentience seems nonexistent because she is constantly in communion with the minds of other planes, causing the mortals there to become insane.

While she rarely interacts with anything or anybody, when she does she takes the form of a golden slaadi or a gold-skinned elf. Her intelligence is known to be so alien that it cannot be quantified by mortals, possibly due to her utter madness. As such she poses little cosmological threat, and rather merely exists as a form of chaos, and thus she is often ignored by all other Slaad lords.
