Mulop is a Great Beast that dwells in one of the Hundred Isles. He is a dark orange octopus with green eyes, and is very large, like every other Great Beast (apart from the Four Fallen).
In the Fall of the Beasts series, he is summoned by a girl named Niri. Their bond gives Niri the power of telepathy, which she uses to communicate with Kovo. Their bond is temporarily severed when Mulop is infected by a Wyrm parasite but he is eventually restored to Niri in the end.
Main artcle: Talismans
Mulop's talisman is the Coral Octopus. It makes the user's body gelatinous, so that they are able to squeeze through spaces that they usually couldn't. It also allows the user to breathe underwater.
In the Books
The Kingray is called by the Sacred conches in order to find Mulop. When they arrive at the island that Mulop resides on, Rollan climbs into a large hole with Arax's talisman, the Granite Ram, on. From there, when all of them climb down, they find Mulop. Mulop gives them The Coral Octopus willingly, and also gives the team a challenge. Conor accepts it and tries out the talisman, and soon after, he goes missing. After that, the Conquerors find them, and Meilin betrays them because she was revealed to have drank the Bile. She takes Abeke with her to the Conquerors' side.
Mulop along with the other spirit animals sacrifice the themselves to stop Kovo from getting complete control of Erdas.
