SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Fiendish Health. The cacodaemon is immune to disease.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The cacodaemon’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 11). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring only verbal components:
  • Shapechanger. The cacodaemon can use its action to polymorph into a beast form that resembles a lizard (speed 15 ft.), octopus (5 ft., swim 30 ft.), a small scorpion (15 ft., climb 15 ft.), venomous snake (15 ft., swim 15 ft.), or back into its true form. Its statistics are the same in each form, except for the speed changes note. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

ACTIONS

  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4+2) piercing damage, and the creature must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw against disease or become poisoned until the disease is cured. Every 24 hours that elapse, the target must repeat the saving throw. A creature is cured after three successful saving throws. If a creature dies while it is poisoned and diseased in this way, its soul automatically becomes trapped as a soul gem in the cacodaemon’s gut.

REACTIONS

  • Soul Lock. When a sentient creature dies within 60 feet of the cacodaemon, it can ingest its spirit. This causes a soul gem to grow inside of the cacodaemon’s gut, which it can regurgitate as an action. A soul gem is a fine sized object with 1 hit point. Destroying a soul gem frees the soul, though it does not return the deceased creature to life. Attempting to resurrect a creature who’se soul is in a cacodaemon’s soul gem requires the caster of the spell to make a spellcasting ability score check with a DC of 9. If the check succeeds, the soul gem shatters, and the creature is resurrected as normal.
