SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Drain Pain. Each creature within 15 feet of the ukradolo has advantage on their saving throws against effects that inflict pain to harm or impede them.
  • Shapechanger. The fiend can use its action to polymorph into a Small or Medium humanoid, or back into its true form. Other than its size, its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The ukradolo makes two melee weapon attacks.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d6 +1) slashing damage.
  • Psychic Scream. The ukradolo screams in pain, which is audible from as far away as 300 feet. Each creature within 30 feet of the ukradolo must make a DC 12 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 3 (1d6) psychic damage and is deafened, or takes half as much damage and isn’t deafened on a successful one.

ABOUT

Ukradolos are among evil’s failed projects. They were created to roam the Material Plane and feed on the pain of mortals.

Ironically, when they feed on pain, they make it go away, offering comfort to their “victim”. Even more ironically, these “victims” sense that something is wrong when their pain drains away, which mostly leads to the discovery of the fiend and its destruction.

Goodness by Mistake. Ukradolos are cowardly creatures. When mortals started seeking them out to kill them, they changed their methods and started to masquerade as good beings. They started to help other creatures in disguise to offer comfort and while doing so, they also drained their pain without them noticing.

Goodness by Choice. An ukradolo masquerading as a traveling merchant offering free blankets to freezing adventurers, disguising oneself as a cook that offers warm food to the poor, or impersonating a healer tending the wounds of a warrior are all common occurrences that go unnoticed by most. What started as a means of preservation ages ago has evolved into sincere acts of kindness, further improved by draining pain away.

Heretics amongst Heretics. Fiends (other than ukradolos) who come across ukradolos, try to kill them on site, without so much as a second thought. Having betrayed their very nature as well as the purpose of their creators, ukradolos are even worse than celestials from the standpoint of any other kind of fiend.

Misunderstood. These fiends are also hunted down and killed by mortals. Even though their intentions are good, mortals usually do not notice, as they are distracted by their horror of ukradolos’ fiendish features. Most ukradolos adopt a new humanoid form, because of which they become delusional; starting to think that their new form is their natural one. The truth mostly reveals itself when an ukradolo has a child from a mortal, or when it dies.
