About

These nightmarish creatures resemble a foul union of humanoid, praying mantis, and perhaps some other insect. They are the color of dried blood and shadowy underbrush, their dark reddish-green armored exoskeletons covered in sharp spines.

Blood reapers stand 8 to 10 feet tall and weigh over 350 pounds.

Spawn of Blood. These creatures are infused with a terrible bloodlust and an insatiable desire to hunt. They remain a constant danger today to anyone unfortunate enough to encounter them. The only good thing one might report about them today is that they are thankfully rare.

Fearless Berserker. A blood reaper is a ferocious fighter that leaps into battle heedlessly, wounding as many foes as possible with its scythe-like claws. Blood reapers never willingly retreat from combat.
