  • Multiattack. The osphranteal makes two attacks: one with its kick and one with its slam.
  • Kick. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d10 + 5) bludgeoning damage plus 10 (3d6) radiant damage.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d6 + 5) bludgeoning damage plus 10 (3d6) radiant damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 15) if the target is a Medium or smaller creature and the osphranteal isn’t grappling a different creature.
  • Double Kick. The osphranteal makes two kick attacks against one target it can see. If one attack hits, the target is pushed up to 5 feet away from the osphranteal. If both attacks hit, the target is pushed up to 10 feet away. If the osphranteal is grappling the target or the target is otherwise unable to move away from the osphranteal, the target instead takes an extra 10 (3d6) slashing damage from the osphranteal’s massive hind claws.
  • Prodigious Leap. The osphranteal jumps up to 20 feet vertically and 40 feet horizontally. At any point during the leap, the osphranteal can make a kick attack.
  • Protective Pouch. The osphranteal puts a willing or helpless Medium or smaller creature into its pouch or removes a creature from its pouch. While inside the pouch, the creature has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the pouch, has advantage on saving throws, and regains 1 hit point at the start of each of its turns. The pouch can hold a single creature.


  • Mob Defense. If a creature within 5 feet of the osphranteal that the osphranteal can see is subjected to a critical hit, the osphranteal turns it into a normal hit.


Osphranteals are majestic marsupials that roam the celestial plains of the plane of Nirvana. An osphranteal stands noble on fearsome hind legs, supported by a massive tail. Its upper torso is that of a muscular, deeply tanned humanoid, with a serene facial expression that belies the danger posed to evildoers by its powerful limbs.

Osphranteals cherish healthy growth and appreciate a selfless nature. They have strong protective feelings toward non-evil creatures smaller than themselves, whom they strive at all times to shelter from harm to the best of their ability.

During times of peace, highly ritualized brawling tournaments are an honored osphranteal pastime. In such tournaments, osphranteals duke it out among their own kind and with any other willing creatures deemed to be worthy challengers.

There is no grand prize at stake, only the knowledge that the tourney’s winner is the best suited individual to protect others-a status for which many osphranteals would fight tirelessly.

While osphranteals despise any kind of evil, they hold a special enmity toward daemons in general and meladaemons in particular, whom they seek to defeat at every opportunity. No one knows where the ancient grudge between osphranteals and meladaemons came from, though the daemons of starvation are only too happy to return their celestial counterparts’ hatred.
