Special Traits

  • Keen Smell. The morlock has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Light Sensitivity. While in bright light, the morlock has disadvantage on attack rolls and Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.
  • Pounce. If the morlock moves at least 15 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a bite attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the morlock can make another bite attack against it as a bonus action.
  • Martial Advantage. Once per turn, the morlock can deal an extra 7 (2d6) damage to a creature it hits with a weapon attack if that creature is within 5 feet of an ally of the morlock that isn’t incapacitated.
