  • Innate Spellcasting. The lovely sveldive’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 12, +4 to hit with spell attacks). The lovely sveldive can innately cast the following spells like a 1st-level spellcaster, requiring no material components:


The svetudilven is a sort of flying, bioluminescent cnidarian that floats gracefully across damp, unventilated caves. It lives in colonies of up to a hundred individuals. Feeding off spores and small insects, it contributes to purifying infested areas, but also hinders the growth of mushroom beds that certain communities subsist on.

Sensitive to airborne vibrations, a svetudilven pulses in tune with any music or singing around it. Naturally white-colored, it can alter the hue and intensity of its glow when it feels threatened. Thus, in the proximity of an unknown creature larger than it, the svetudilven will take on a dark blue or deep purple color to fade into the protective darkness. In the presence of a predator or dissonant noises, it can even turn completely transparent.

The sveldive, both lovely and solemn, is known to guide souls, finding them in the Ethereal Plane that it commonly visits. A humanoid that dies within 60 feet of a sveldive will be taken by it to the nearest maelossa, where the departed can be reborn as a sidhe. The sveldive will act toward the sidhe like a sort of mother, watching it, caring for it, and comforting it.
