Ooze's & Engulfed

Situation -

A character is Engulfed by a Gelatinous Cube (found on page 202 in MM) and the party wants to get the character free.

Question: Since the description of the power treats it as a grab, should it follow all the grab rules?
Can not find any rules for Engulfed.

Now according to the grab rules, any type of forced movement can break a grab. So if you, example: hit the Cube with a Thunderwave, could you free that character?


At the moment I'm treating it as a grab and the force movement will break the engulfed. Just would like some solid rules to back this up.

Engulfed is not a condition, it is just the name of the power. If it was called "fuzzy white horses" it would still do the same thing.

Now as you said the power allows the GC to grab the character. Since forced movement ends a grab, you could free a creature by forcing either the GC or the grabbed creature to move.
