Celestial Diva

Divas are magical beings that can be summoned only through elaborate makeup sigil tattoos, which allow them to possess a mortal host. Though they can take a host of any gender, most divas are feminine in nature and express themselves as such, which they make known to the host prior to summoning. Their home realm is a dreary place, and they become frustrated with mortals who choose similarly dull lives dictated by the expectations of others. Many divas could be considered cultural anarchists, though their extravagant acts come from a place of love for the Mortal Plane.

Traits

Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 2, and your Wisdom score increases by 1.

Age. Divas manifest as adults and do not age. Their hosts do age, but at half the normal rate. Divas rarely abandon a host, but when one dies, they are likely to choose another if they are resummoned.

Alignment. Divas seek what they want when they want it, regardless of the moral or societal consequences. Most divas are chaotic neutral.

Rarity. Unknown.

Size. As an active humanoid creature, a diva is the size of the host but weighs 10 to 20 pounds less than they would appear. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Attitude. You are the master of passive-aggressive snark and backhanded compliments. You know the vicious mockery cantrip. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for it.

Fabulous. You have proficiency in the Persuasion and Performance (singing) skills, and in the use of a disguise kit.

Heritage (Celestial). You are a humanoid, but you are considered to be a celestial whenever it is detrimental for you.

Stage Presence. You know the dancing lights cantrip, but the lights appear as four moving spotlights that can focus on you when you speak.

Languages. You speak, read, and write Common and Astral. Depending on where the diva’s consciousness resides when without a host, some divas might also know Celestial or Whimsy.
