Special Traits

  • Innate Spellcasting. The proud’s spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 11). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components.
  • Overbearing Charge. If the proud moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a melee attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The proud makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws, or one with its spear and two with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) slashing damage.
  • Spear. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) piercing damage, or 7 (1d8 + 3) piercing damage if used in two hands.

Tactics

The proud usually hunt in prides during the earliest and latest hours of the day as lions do, although nocturnal attacks are not uncommon. When attacking traveling targets, the proud pick off stragglers and scouts, harrying the main group at regular intervals until the targets’ nerves are ragged. This repetitive hounding can cause prey to develop a kind of defensive rhythm — which allows the proud to attack in full force when the enemy least expects it. They often recruit prides of lions to bolster their numbers during larger raids. The proud are savage warriors, giving no quarter and expecting none. Still, they may retreat if they find themselves significantly outmatched.

Description

The proud are a race of centaur-like creatures with the upper body of a human and the torso of a lion. Their faces are generally feline, with males sporting manes and women having slightly larger eyes. Not much is known about proud life expectancy or their complex tribal interactions since few proud are willing to explain such things to outsiders, and especially not to the divine races or the Redeemed.
