  • Multiattack. The encantado makes two melee weapon attacks with either its intoxicating slap or its spear.
  • Intoxicating Slap. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 3 (1d6) psychic damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 16 Charisma saving throw or become charmed
  • Spear. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage, or 8 (1d10 + 3) piercing damage if used with two hands to make a melee attack.
  • Change Shape. The encantado magically polymorphs into a dolphin or Medium humanoid that has a challenge rating equal to or less than its own, or back into its true form. It reverts to its true form if it dies. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying is absorbed or borne by the new form (the encantado’s choice). In a new form, the encantado retains its game statistics and ability to speak, but its AC, movement modes, Strength, Dexterity, and other actions are replaced by those of the new form, and it gains any statistics and capabilities (except class features, legendary actions, and lair actions) that the new form has but that it lacks.


In their natural form, these graceful shapechangers combine the features of a human and a bright pink river dolphin. These fey live on the fringes of humanoid societies. They are attracted to parties and change form into attractive humanoids to infiltrate celebrations. When in dolphin form, encantados can still manipulate objects with their flippers as if the flippers were hands.

Partygoers. When warm, humid nights in the jungle turn into jubilant celebrations, one can be sure that an encantado can be found nearby. Skilled musicians and dancers, encantados blend into the festivities seamlessly. When encantados shapeshift, their blowholes are still present, so they usually wear hats or wigs, or arrange their hair into elaborate coiffures, to conceal this feature.

Fey Attraction. Many encantados are kind creatures who want only to celebrate joy, but others take their inclinations to influence others to an extreme, kidnapping the objects of their obsession and taking them away to their river dens. They usually tire swiftly of such dalliances, however, and may thoughtlessly abandon their erstwhile crush in the wild along the river as their attention wanders elsewhere.
