Double Attack [one-action] The kraken makes two Strikes with two different arms or tentacles, each limb targeting a different creature. Double Attack counts as two attacks toward the kraken’s multiple attack penalty for further actions, but the penalty doesn’t increase until after both attacks are made. If the kraken subsequently uses the Grab action, it Grabs any number of creatures it hit with Double Attack.

Ink Cloud [one-action] The kraken emits a cloud of black, venomous ink in an 80-foot emanation. This cloud has no effect outside water. Creatures inside the ink cloud are exposed to kraken ink poison and are undetected while inside the cloud. The kraken can’t use Ink Cloud again for 2d6 rounds, and the cloud dissipates after 1 minute.

Jet [one-action] (move) The kraken moves through the water up to 280 feet in a straight line without triggering reactions.

About

A kraken is an enormous, squid-like leviathan with a cruel intelligence. It hunts ships, whales, and heroes alike. The hatred and envy krakens hold for their rivals, the alghollthus, has led many krakens to make their lairs in sunken cities, where they can sift through ancient lore for long-lost arcane secrets.
