  • Radiant Form. The elemental can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing. A creature that touches the elemental or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 5 (1d10) radiant damage. In addition, the elemental can enter a hostile creature’s space and stop there. The first time it enters a creature’s space on a turn, that creature takes 5 (1d10) radiant damage.
  • Illumination. The elemental sheds bright light in a 50-foot radius and dim light in an additional 50 feet.


  • Multiattack. The elemental makes two radiant touch attacks.
  • Radiant TouchMelee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) radiant damage.
  • Solar Flash (Recharge 4–6). The elemental releases a brilliant flash of light in a 20-foot radius centered on itself. Each creature in that light must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 6 (1d6 +3) radiant damage and is blinded until the end of the elemental’s next turn. On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and isn’t blinded.


Solar elementals flock to the coronas of stars and can also be found in glowing nebulas of distant corners of the galaxy or Astral plane. They look like a vaguely humanoid glow. Their intense light is so strong that against the black of space, they are often mistaken for stars themselves.
