Special Traits

  • Dive Attack. If the pegasos is flying and dives at least 30 ft. straight toward a target and then hits it with a melee weapon attack, the attack deals an extra 9 (2d8) piercing damage on a hit.
  • Flyby. The pegasos doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks when it flies out of an enemy’s reach.
  • Shape Water. The pegasos can cast control water at will, requiring no components. Its spellcasting ability for it is Charisma. This use of the spell has a range of 30 feet and can affect a cube of water no larger than 30 feet on a side.

Actions

  • Hooves. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage.
  • Water Lash. The pegasos stamps it hoof on the ground. IT causes a 5-foot cube of water in front of it to strike a target up to 60 feet away. The target must make a DC 14 Strength saving throw. On a failed save, it takes 16 (4d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage, and if it is a Large or smaller creature, it is pushed up to 15 feet in a straight line or is knocked prone (nereid’s choice). On a successful save, the target takes half as much damage and isn’t pushed or knocked prone.

About

This majestic horse has two huge, feathery wings jutting from its shoulders.

The original Pegasos was born of the blood of Medusa when the hero Perseus chopped off her head. Its coat usually has a gleam of silver.

The hero Bellerophon managed to catch Pegasos at the spring of Pirene on Acrocorinth and broke him in. These two experienced many adventures and when Bellerophon was killed, Pegasos ascended to Olympus where Zeus places Pegasos among the constellations. Fortunately, there are many other Ethiopian descendants that have a similar appearance.

Servants of Zeus. As the carriers of Zeus’ thunderbolts, they are immune to the threats of the sky like thunder and lightning. As bringers of water, a stomp of their hoof can wreck devastation to their foes.

A typical pegasos stands 6 feet high at the shoulder, weighs 1,500 pounds, and has a wingspan of 20 feet.
