Special Traits

  • Dark Devotion. A deep one hybrid cultist has advantage on saving throws against being charmed or frightened.
  • Final Change. A deep one hybrid ages faster than a human. A mere 1d12 months after a deep one hybrid reaches venerable age at 60 years old, it dies a painful, agonizing death, only to have its body transform into that of a mature deep one. This transformation functions as the reincarnate spell.
  • Hold Breath. The deep one hybrid can hold its breath for 15 minutes.
  • Sea Longing. Every 24 hours a deep one hybrid spends more than 10 miles from the sea, it must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw. On a failure, the deep one hybrid has disadvantage on ability checks, attack rolls, and saving throw. If the deep one hybrid is already suffering this penalty, it takes 1d6 psychic damage on a failure. The deep one hybrid no longer suffers this disadvantage once it has spent 24 hours within 10 miles of the sea.


  • Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, 5 ft. reach. Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) slashing damage.
