ACTIONS

  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d4 + 4) poison damage. The target must make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw or be poisoned until the beginning of the fei shei’s next turn.
  • Dazzle (recharges 5–6). The fei shei opens a brightly-hued neck fan and subjects targets to a burst of disorienting colors. All targets within a 15-foot cone are affected as if by a color spray spell; roll 6d10 to determine how many hit points are affected and targets are blinded until the start of the fei shei’s next turn in order of their hit points, as per the spell.

ABOUT

Fei shei are greenish tree snakes that live in warm temperate and tropical regions in and around the Xha’en Hegemony. They normally feed on small rodents, birds, eggs, and other snakes. They are also highly territorial. If approached, a fei shi drops from its perch, unfurls a pair of bat-like wings, and attacks intruders with poisonous fangs.

Fei shei possess expanding throat fans that emit a burst of bright, disorienting colors at threatening enemies. This dazzling display can incapacitate most predators and can also endanger humans who inadvertently blunder into a nest of the serpents.
