The Cookie Monster (one must always refer to this fearsome being as such, for there is only one such creature in all of the realms) is a man-sized blue cookie-eating fanatic, whose single purpose, apparently, is the destruction of well-baked kuchen goods. It is unknown if The Cookie Monster is male or female, but it seems to have a preference for consumables with peanut butter or chocolate chips - many a baker has feared the utterance of The Cookie Monster's only known war-cry: "C is for Cookie, its good enough for Me!" Despite the appalling lack of goodwill shown to children through munching any, and all, cookies possible, they seem to be attracted to the beast - perhaps the bobbling eyes and soft blue fur make them at ease... or it is a fell guise of the most demonic sort - none, so far, have been willing to investigate. The Cookie Monster seems to lack any teeth, perhaps rotted away from the senseless forays into mad sugar consumption have affected it, leaving it with a voracious maw of non-stop demand.
Combat: Unless one is a cookie, one has little to fear from The Cookie Monster. However, in those instances, The Cookie Monster is unstoppable. It attacks with vengeance borne from madness and hunger, an insatiable drive to crunch and taste that would make even the most edacious sick with envy.
Sugar Rush: Should The Cookie Monster devour a cookie, regardless of the amount, type, size, or flavor, it gains all the abilities of a 20th level barbarian and monk, and can use its bite attack as many times as there are cookies to be eaten; these additional attacks must be directed at the cookies, fortunately.
Cookie Monster: The Cookie Monster can swallow any cookie on a natural attack roll of 12 or higher, even if that would ordinarily miss the armor class of the cookie - in this case, the cookie is not destroyed instantly, but suffers three times normal damage. Lastly, should another try to steal, or take a cookie away from The Cookie Monster, The Cookie Monster is considered a 30 HD monster, or 10 levels higher than the would-be thief, whichever is higher.
Special: Due to its great experience with, and connoisseurship of all things cookie, there is a wealth of information available from The Cookie Monster. In its lair, rumored to be a hidden bakery somewhere on Sesame Street, there resides a tome of pastry significance. Within its pages lie the recipes for every known cookie, several of magical ability, and more of as-yet undiscovered quality and property. Any culinary student would be amazed at its contents. Castle Keepers are advised to treat this enchiridion as an artifact of immense power.
