SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Innate Spellcasting (Psionics). The elali’s innate spellcasting ability is Intelligence (save DC 14). The elali can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components.
  • Magic Resistance. The elali has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Psychic Enhancement. The elali’s weapon attacks are magical. When an elali hits with a weapon attack, it deals an extra 3d6 psychic damage (included in the attack).

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The elali makes two dagger attacks.
  • Dagger. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d4+3) piercing damage plus 3d6 (10) psychic damage.
  • Mental Paralysis. The elali mentally assaults a creature within 30 feet that it can see. The creature must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or become paralyzed for up to 1 minute. The elali must maintain concentration on this ability as if concentrating on a spell. At the end of the creature’s turn, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. If the creature makes its saving throw or the effect ends for it, it is immune to the elali’s Mental Paralysis for the next 24 hours.

ABOUT

A powerful psychic species—and the elder statesmen of the Bellanic Accord—elali have long cultivated a reputation as benevolent shepherds of the multiverse. Ages ago, they evolved on a lush, mountainous world with vicious predators, forced to rely on cunning and intellect to survive. As a result, they also prefer to remain in the shadows of interplanetary affairs, often shaping events on other worlds through proxies and intermediaries until native species are ready to accept their presence. The true agenda of the elali is sustain the master plans and prophecies of the ascended Patrons, moving the multiverse towards a similar enlightenment and joint commonality.

Gentle Psychics. Capable of channeling their psychic talents in impressive displays of mental dominance and deception, the elali loathe to use their powers on the unwilling. This selfimposed ban on the unethical abuse of their abilities—as well as their dwindling population and slow reproductive cycle—is all that keeps them from becoming a conquering force in the universe; a well-known fact by other species, especially their enemies among the Ultari Hegemony. Only marginally shorter in stature than an average-sized human, elali commonly stand 5-1/2 feet tall and weigh around 120 pounds, with strange tattoos covering their skin, yet their most distinctive feature is how the crown of their heads splits open like a flower to expose brains covered in a thin layer of lavender skin.
