Bludsquid has a large, deep purple head resembling the shape of a teardrop. Towards the top of its head are red marks, one elliptical mark at the top, and one resembling somewhat of a unibrow underneath it. It has two large eyes, with blue pupils, separated by their mouth. Unlike the Dracusquid, Bludsquid's mouth is rather undeveloped and has no teeth. However, they have suctioning lips, which have an easy time sticking to opponents, allowing the Bludsquid to drain them of their blood rather easily. On the sides of their heads are fins, which allow them to glide through water much more easily. Bludsquids only have two tentacles, with three red spots on them. Rather than suction cups, Bludsquids have large spikes at the ends of their tentacles, which assist the Bludsquid in remaining attached to their prey by digging the spikes deep into their skin.
In the deep seas of Collusia and Complanet, Bludsquids are undoubtedly one of the most common predators. While they may not look too menacing, these looks can be somewhat deceiving, as their main purpose is to drain other creatures of their energy. In the sense of a traditional vampire, the Bludsquid craves blood, as reflected in its name. While Bludsquids will attack almost anything they come across, their primary prey are the Lumigae, since their heads are quite easy to tear through with their spiky tentacles, and the pods located inside are extremely nutritious, even though their somewhat plant-like bodies lack the blood most Bludsquids typically crave. However, since their mouths are rather small and undeveloped, oftentimes they need the assistance of a Dracusquid to help them out.
Bludsquids travel in large schools, usually at a minimum of twenty members, led by a Dracusquid. Only male Bludsquids can grow into a Dracusquid, which seems to cause difficulty when breeding. However, since Bludsquids often lay several eggs at a time, they are very far from extinction. If a Dracusquid dies, the primary male Bludsquid of a school will take its place, and grow into the new form over time. The leading Dracusquid is often necessary for the Bludsquids, since they often need their food divided into several smaller pieces for proper digestion. Dracusquids are noted to have much higher levels of sapience, and thus are most well fit to lead the schools that Bludsquids form.
While Bludsquids will often attempt tearing through the Lumigae colonies they encounter, the Lumigae have evolved to have a defense mechanism to protect their bodies in the form of their bioluminescence. Since the eyes of Bludsquid are extremely sensitive to light, it is relatively easy for them to ward off attacking Bludsquids by increasing the intensity of their lights to a heavy degree, scaring the Bludsquids and causing them to flee. Some Dracusquids attempt to endure this by attacking the Lumigae regardless and digesting their insides, though even then, the Dracusquid will often flee when in contact with a Maringel.
