  • Incorporeal Movement. The aoandon can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The aoandon’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 17, +9 to hit with spell attacks). She can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:


  • Multiattack. The aoandon makes 3 mote attacks.
  • Motes. Ranged Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, range 10 ft./30 ft. Hit: 14 (2d8 + 5) force damage and 14 (4d6) psychic damage.
  • Etherealness. The aoandon enters the Ethereal Plane from the Material Plane, or vice versa. She is visible on the Material Plane while it is in the Border Ethereal, and vice versa, yet she can’t affect or be affected by anything on the other plane.


An aoandon is an incorporeal outsider formed from the spirit of a woman who died pursuing some ill-fated relationship.

An aoandon waits for her chance to seek revenge on those who wronged her in her mortal life. If that person is dead, she finds a surrogate-someone who reminds her of the wrongdoer-and acts out her delusions with unrelenting vindictiveness. These spirits can also appear as a result of mishaps with calling spells, but such instances are rare. The aoandon appears as a translucent figure of a woman that begins fading below the neck and trails off entirely below the waist into scattered motes, shapes, and symbols of blue light.
