Special Traits

  • Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces Pinfin to 0 hit points, it must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 + the damage taken, unless the damage is radiant or from a critical hit. On a success, it drops to 1 hit point instead.
  • Undead Nature. Pinfin doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.


  • Multiattack. Pinfin makes three melee attacks: one with its decaying bite and two with its claws.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6+6) slashing damage.
  • Decaying Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 25 (3d12+6) piercing damage plus 7 (2d6) necrotic damage. The target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be cursed with perpetual decay. The cursed target can’t regain hit points until the curse is lifted by the remove curse spell or similar magic, or until it succeeds on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw at the end of a long rest. In addition, if the target is a Medium or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 16). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained and Pinfin can’t bite another target.


A young spinosaurus who aspires to grow large and fearsome, Pinfin looks forward to the day when he might lead the pack while lacking the understanding to see that he will never grow.

Pinfin hunts with ruthless efficiency and relentless enthusiasm, speaking to his prey in the voice of a small and excited child even as he eats them alive.
