Special Traits

  • Assassinate. During its first turn, the kaukasios has advantage on attack rolls against any creature that hasn’t taken a turn. Any hit the kaukasios scores against a surprised creature is a critical hit.
  • Keen Sight. The kaukasios has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.
  • Maintainable. Repairing 1 hit point of damage to the kaukasios takes 1 hour and requires replacement parts, which can be bought in a large city for 20 st. If the kaukasios drops to 0 hit points, it is destroyed and unrepairable.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The kaukasios makes two attacks: one with its beak and one with its talons.
  • Beak. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 27 (4d8 + 9) piercing damage.
  • Talons. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 23 (4d6 + 9) slashing damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 22). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the kaukasios can’t use its talons on another target.

About

A massive, magnificent construct, this gigantic eagle has golden plumage from head to tail. Its glittering eyes are made of gemstones.

These enormous creatures are 30 feet long from the beak to the base of the tail, with wingspans as wide as 80 feet. A Kaukasios weighs about 8,000 pounds.

Made for Torture. The chief purpose of kaukasios golems is to torture titans, feasting on their flesh despite not gaining any nourishment from it.

A Kaukasios attacks from the air, swooping earthward to snatch prey in its powerful talons and carry it off for itself and its young to devour.
