Special Traits

  • Incorporeal Movement. The bright wraith 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.
  • Radiant Form. The bright wraith’s armor class is equal to 10 + its Dexterity modifier + its Charisma modifier (already included above). Additionally, it sheds bright light to a radius of 30 feet, and dim light for another 30 feet.
  • Redeeming Light. If a wraith or specter is slain by radiant damage dealt by the bright wraith, it reconstitutes on its next turn as a Bright Mote under the bright wraith’s control. The bright wraith can’t have more than 14 bright motes under its control at a time.


  • Searing Touch. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 36 (8d8) radiant damage. If the target is undead or a fiend, it must succeed on a DC 16 Constitution saving throw, or its hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the creature finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.
  • Radiant Burst (Recharge 5-6). The bright wraith, emits a burst of radiant energy. Creatures within 30 feet of the bright wraith must make a DC 16 Constitution saving throw, becoming blinded for 1 minute and taking 45 (10d8) radiant damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, removing its blindness on a success.
