  • Ghost Form (1/Day). As a bonus action, a sharavene can transform into an insubstantial yet unremarkable-looking mortal of any race. The sharavene returns to its true form if it takes any amount of damage or if it uses its bonus action to do so.
  • Heart of Evermaw. Living creatures within 15 feet of the sharavene are vulnerable to necrotic damage. A creature killed by necrotic damage while within 15 feet of the sharavene rises as ghost at the beginning of its next turn. Ghosts that rise because of this feature will not attack the sharavene.
  • Incorporeal Movement. The sharavene can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.
  • Spirit’s Wrath. The sharavene’s presence enrages undead that are capable of incorporeal movement. Such an undead that is within 20 feet of the sharavene cannot be reasoned with or interacted with diplomatically. Additionally, the undead deals an extra 7 (2d6) necrotic damage with any attack it makes that deals necrotic damage.


  • Corrupting Touch. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft., one creature. Hit: 31 (8d6 + 3) necrotic damage. The target must also succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or be unable to benefit from magical healing for 1 hour. A creature that makes this saving throw is immune to the nondamaging aspects of this feature for 24 hours.
  • Frightful Moan (Recharge 5-6). Each nonundead creature within 30 feet of the sharavene that can hear it must make a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw, taking 28 (8d6) psychic damage on a failed save or half as much damage on a successful one. A creature that fails its saving throw is also frightened for 1 minute. A creature frightened by this feature can make a new Wisdom saving throw at the end of each of its turns, overcoming the condition on a successful save.


  • Escape the Light. If the sharavene takes radiant damage, it can use its reaction to teleport to an unoccupied space it can see within 150 feet of it.


Hundreds of eyes dot the insubstantial, moth-like body of this creature. The unsettling orbs blink open and closed at irregular intervals. The sharavene’s wings become even less substantial at the outer edges where they appear to fade away into the gray pall that shrouds the creature.

Sharavenes feel more of an animosity toward ghosts and other insubstantial undead than an affinity for them. The mere presence of a sharavene causes incorporeal undead to attack any living creature near them in a near-mindless frenzy. Sharavenes prefer to remain hidden in areas where ghosts can’t interact with them but where they are close enough that any humanoid slain by the ghost rises as a new ghost itself.

Despite their disdain for ghosts and their ilk, sharavenes enjoy using their ability to take on a ghostly aspect to manipulate mortals. A favorite tactic of theirs is to take up residence in the home of a mortal and convince them they are a deceased relative or former resident. They then ask their roommate to undertake a series of tasks, often of bizarre or unsettling nature, in order to put their spirit to rest. When the unfortunate victim of their prank realizes they are being toyed with, the sharavene kills them and raises them as a ghost that they quickly abandon.
