Deva Wings

Wondrous item, artifact (requires attunement)

Sometimes, when an angel is slain by the forces of evil, his wings fall from his back and preserve the angel’s essence and purity. In these rare occasions, deva wings remain forever unspoiled, protected by a permanent gentle repose spell. The tragedy of such a heinous murder is palpable: anyone touching the wings for the first time is overcome with sadness and must make a DC 16 Wisdom saving throw or suffer disadvantage on ability and skill checks, attack rolls, and all saving throws for the next hour.

If you are good-aligned, you can don the deva wings as an action by placing the artifact on your back and making a prayer dedicated to the slain angel. The wings then attach themselves to you and remain affixed for as long as you desire. You may remove the wings as an action.

Random Properties: A set of Deva Wings has the following random properties:

  • 1 minor beneficial property
  • 1 minor detrimental property

Angelic Boon: Donning the deva wings grants you an insight on the deceased angel’s identity and circumstance of death. Once per day, as an action, you can issue a call for help across the planes; at the wearer’s choice, this cry can take the form of a sending spell or a 35% chance to summon a deva.

Divine Flight: You gain a fly speed of 50 ft.

Overwhelming Good: A nongood creature attempting to don the wings automatically fails and takes 35 (10d6) points of radiant damage; this ignores radiant resistance and radiant immunity.


Destroying the Deva Wings requires plucking their feathers one by one using tweezers made from the bones of a dead angel. The plucked feathers must then be doused in potent poison and fed to the demonic larvae of the netherworld.
