Quaggoths are a race of bear-like creatures native to the Underdark.
It is originally believed the drow created the quaggoth as a slave race. They escaped and found their own place in the Underdark. The race's origin is unknown though. Sages claimed they were once semi-civilized people which once dominated over the Underdark through conquest and ritual sacrifice, until the drow and gray dwarves broke their power. Others presume they had land on the surface but were driven underground. They did one time have an underground kingdom named Ursadunthar. Ursanduthar was under the Spine of the World and fell once the duergar invaded it. The quaggoth have no known fears, though they are dangerous hunters and prey for other Underdark predators. If captured early in life they can be trained to be guards or servants. A good amount of the quaggoth tribes do not use weapons but instead use their sharp claws.
