  • Aggressive. As a bonus action, the Divirulent Hound can move up to their speed toward a hostile creature they can see.
  • Shapechanger. The Divirulent Hound can use their action to polymorph into a wolf or back. Their statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment they are wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. The Divirulent Hound reverts to their true form if they die or are cured of their disease (divine virulence), a process much more involved than casting restoration or remove curse.
  • Solar Curse. While in sunlight, the Divirulent Hound can only assume its hybrid form or wolf form.
  • Touch of Darrius. The Divirulent Hound has advantage on saving throws to resist the charmed condition.


  • Multiattack. The Divirulent Hound makes three attacks: one with their bite and two with their claws (or if in wolf form, twice with their bite).
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8+3) magical piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) radiant damage. If the Divirulent Hound is in wolf form and the target is a creature, the target must succeed on a DC 12 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
  • Claws (Hybrid Form Only). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 8 (2d4+3) magical slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) radiant damage.


A golden glow emanates from this albino werewolf.

There is little public knowledge of the transformation into a Divirulent Hound except that the process is extremely painful, often compared to death and rebirth but not feared because the vast majority of citizens remain blissfully unaware of their full effects of their sickness (if they even know they have it).
