SPECIAL TRAITS

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The sphinx makes one Bite attack and one Claws attack.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) slashing damage.
  • Roar (2/day). The sphinx emits a magical roar. Each time it roars before finishing a long rest, the roar is louder and the effect is different, as detailed below. Each creature within 200 feet of the sphinx that is able to hear the roar must make a saving throw.
  • First Roar. Each creature must make a DC 16 Constitution saving throw, taking 18 (4d8) radiant damage on a failure and half as much on a success. Fiends and undead have disadvantage on this saving throw.
  • Second Roar. Each creature must make a DC 16 Constitution saving throw, taking 27 (6d8) radiant damage on a failure and half as much on a success. Fiends and undead have disadvantage on this saving throw. Creatures that fail their saving throws are also blinded for one minute. A blinded creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

ABOUT

Seelie sphinxes are relatives of other sphinxes. Each seelie sphinx has a leonine torso, great forepaws, and large feathered wings. The head of a seelie sphinx varies greatly from individual to individual, and may be that of a beetle, a bovine, a ram, a turtle, a baboon, a dog, a fish, an owl, a bennu, a falcon, a human, or an ibis. While seelie sphinxes have no particular love of humanity, they are concerned with the welfare of those of just disposition. If a seelie sphinx encounters humans, it generally reserves judgment until it can evaluate their alignment with the forces of good and evil.
