Special Traits

  • Innate Spellcasting. The trickster demon’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 15). The trickster demon can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
  • Magic Resistance. The trickster demon has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Shadow Stealth. While in dim light or darkness, the trickster demon can take the Hide action as a bonus action.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The trickster demon makes two Disfiguring Touch attacks.
  • Disfiguring Touch. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., creature. Hit: 17 (4d6 + 3) necrotic damage, and the target’s Charisma score is reduced by 1d4. The target is incapacitated if this reduces its Charisma to 0. Otherwise, the reduction lasts until the target finishes a short or long rest.

Reactions

  • Clumsy Advance. When a creature the trickster demon can see moves within 10 feet of the demon, the creature must succeed on a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw or be knocked prone as it trips over its own feet, over a sudden flaw in the ground where it walks, or experiences some other clumsy stumble as it moves toward the demon.
