  • Brute. A melee weapon deals one extra die of its damage when the lemurkala hits with it (included in the attack).
  • Innate Spellcasting. The lemurkala’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 11). The lemurkala can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Magic Weapons. The lemurkala’s weapon attacks are magical.


  • Multiattack. The lemurkala can use its Allied Swarm if able. It then makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 16 (2d12 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 10 (2d6 + 3) slashing damage.
  • Etherealness. The lemurkala shifts from the Material Plane to the Ethereal Plane, or vice versa.
  • Allied Swarm (Recharge 6). The lemurkala shakes itself, spreading a swarm of undervermin or a swarm of heliconias. The swarm appears in a space of the lemurkala’s choice within 5 feet of it. The swarm acts as an ally of the lemurkala and attacks its enemies on the lemurkala’s turn. The swarm remains for 1 hour, or until the lemurkala dismisses it as a bonus action. The lemurkala can be helped by only one allied swarm at a time.


The lemurkala is an enrooted fey whose appearance may be humorous… until it becomes frightening. This tetrapod is about five feet tall, with a rounded, awkward shape. It is covered with thick, green-brown fur, in which moss grows and small insects abound. Its flexible, agile paws are outfitted with impressive curved claws. Its head is topped by small, rounded, fuzzy ears, and even more striking are its two large, shining, protruding yellow eyes, which never seem capable of staying fixed on the same thing. Its face is elongated, with a wrinkled nose atop a very large mouth. The latter is kept closed most of the time, but when the lemurkala is angered, it opens its maw wide, showing how huge it is, filled with razorsharp teeth.

Eater of Bad Souls

Walking on thick roots that grow in its path and disappear after it, the lemurkala seems to have a restful, unconcerned existence, but in truth, it is a predator of undead, with a focus on incorporeal ones. It can devour these immaterial creatures that reject the natural cycle, and send them right back into it from the depths of its very peculiar stomach. As for corporeal undead, it has no appetite for their flesh, instead shredding them apart with its fearsome claws then gulping down the spiritual fragments that spill out.

It is surmised that this type of scavenger of souls multiplied after the Dawn War. And given how Cankerous activity and subterranean wars provided fertile grounds for the appearance of tormented souls, lemurkalas are far from done cleaning the Netherworld.

Traveler Between Ether and Astral

The lemurkala is a plane-shifting fey. It can open a portal to the Ethereal Plane on any wall or shadow of the Netherworld’s wilderness, and goes there to feast upon tasty specters. It can also open a portal to the Astral Plane in the same fashion.

A Troublesome Spiritual Guide

It is believed that lemurkalas know many things and that they can aid those undertaking an arduous quest. But as knowledgeable as they are, they are not very amenable. They do not facilitate efforts to find them, and even seem to take mischievous pleasure in zipping into the Ethereal Plane when they are approached. When they cannot avoid interaction, they listen with a facade of vacant patience, putting on such convincingly empty-headed airs that one might question their intelligence. This game can stop quickly, however. Though humanoids may have a hard time telling them apart, lemurkalas have distinct personalities, and may thus have very different senses of humor, or even be entirely devoid of one.
