  • Petrifying Gaze When a creature that can see Euryale’s eyes starts its turn within 30 feet of Euryale, she can force it to make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw if Euryale isn’t incapacitated and can see the creature. If the saving throw fails by 5 or more, the creature is instantly petrified. Otherwise, a creature that fails the save begins to turn to stone and is restrained. The restrained creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn, becoming petrified on a failure or ending the effect on a success. The petrification lasts until the creature is freed by the greater restoration spell or other magic. Unless surprised, a creature can avert its eyes to avoid the saving throw at the start of its turn. If the creature does so, it can’t see Euryale until the start of its next turn, when it can avert its eyes again. If the creature looks at Euryale in the meantime, it must immediately make the save. If Euryale sees herself reflected on a polished surface within 30 feet of her and in an area of bright light, Euryale, due to her curse, is affected by her own gaze.


  • Cacophonous Screech (Recharge 5-6). Euryale emits a piercing cry. All creatures within 60 feet of Euryale must make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw, becoming deafened and taking 55 (10d10) thunder damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. If a petrified creature is reduced to half their maximum hit points or less by this damage, they die as their stone body crumbles to dust.
  • Multiattack. Euryale makes either three melee attacks-one with her snake hair and two with her short sword-or two ranged attacks with her longbow.
  • Snake Hair. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 9 (1d6 + 6) piercing damage plus 21 (6d6) poison damage.
  • Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d6 + 6) piercing damage.
  • Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d8 + 6) piercing damage plus 14 (4d6) poison damage.


An elder sister of Medusa, Euryale is a fierce gorgon that shares her late sister’s curse. Though Medusa’s murderer, Perseus, is long dead, she has spent much of her immortal life in mourning for the sister she failed to save. Euryale has a burning hatred for those who call themselves “heroes,” turning them to stone and shattering them with her powerful voice at every opportunity.
