SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Four-Legged Lope. When the vexxeh uses its action to Dash, it moves at three times its speed.
  • Weak Willed. The vexxeh has disadvantage on saving throws against being charmed.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The vexxeh makes two claw attacks.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d10 + 5) slashing damage.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d8 + 5) piercing damage and 7 (2d6) poison damage.
  • Rend. If the vexxeh hits a creature with two claw attacks in one round, it does an extra 14 (4d6) damage.

ABOUT

This bestial creature would stand over 15 feet tall if erect but is more comfortable crouched with its knuckles resting on the ground. It wears a pair of trousers and a vest, both obviously made for someone much smaller than it, and a shallow, round?topped brimmed hat rests on its head. Its cunning eyes belie a malignant intelligence.

Bound to Service. Though they are not devils, vexxeh are natives of the Eleven Hells. Their susceptibility to magical domination makes them ideal lieutenants for evil spellcasters. Once a vexxeh has agreed to serve a master, it adheres to the letter of the agreement that has been struck and will not break the contract even under the threat of destruction.

Lovers of Carnage. Vexxeh only know joy when they are harming living creatures. They relish battle, enjoying the opportunity to shed blood and break bones. More than combat, however, vexxeh enjoy torturing mortals, especially if there is no purpose to it. The psychic distress and trauma suffered by the victims of their torture makes vexxeh gleeful.

Fiendishly Polite. Despite their love of violence, vexxeh are unfailingly polite. They mimic the etiquette and social norms of the culture their current master belongs to, going so far as to affect mannerisms of nobility. Even when rending a creature into bloody chunks, a vexxeh seems regretful and apologetic.
