Special Traits


  • Multiattack. Lucifer uses his Frightful Presence. He then makes three melee attacks or he uses Soulsucking Touch and makes two melee attacks.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +19 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 28 (4d8+10) slashing damage plus 39 (6d12) necrotic damage. The target’s hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the necrotic damage taken, and Lucifer regains hit points equal to that amount. The reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0. If a humanoid is slain in this way, a fiend (with a CR equal to its CR + 3 or its level + 2) rises from the corpse 1 minute later. If a deva, planetar, or solar is slain in this way, a new fallen angel rises from the corpse 1d4 minutes later.
  • Frightful Presence. Each creature of Lucifer’s choice that is within 300 feet of him and aware of him must succeed on a DC 27 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to Lucifer’s Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.
  • Soulsucking Touch. Lucifer reaches out at a creature within 50 feet that he can see, drawing away its life force. The target makes a DC 27 Charisma saving throw or reduces its Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores by 1d8 (roll separately for each). On a failure by 5 or more, the target rolls d10s instead. The target dies if this reduces an ability score to 0. Otherwise, the reduction lasts until the target finishes a short or long rest. If a humanoid is slain in this way, a fiend (with a CR equal to its CR + 3 or its level +2) rises from the corpse 1 round later. If a deva, planetar, or solar is slain in this way, a new fallen angel rises from the corpse 1 minute later.
  • Change Shape. Lucifer magically polymorphs into any creature that has a challenge rating no higher than his own, or back into his true form. Lucifer reverts to his true form if he dies. Any equipment he is wearing or carrying is absorbed or borne by the new form (his choice). In a new form, Lucifer retains his alignment, hit points, Hit Dice, ability to speak, proficiencies, Legendary Resistance, lair actions, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores, as well as this action. His statistics and capabilities are otherwise replaced by those of the new form, including any lair actions of that form.

Legendary Actions

Lucifer can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. He regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

  • Attack. Lucifer makes a melee attack.
  • Spell (Costs 2 Actions). Lucifer innately casts a spell.
  • Conjure Fiend (Costs 3 Actions). Lucifer summons a fiend of challenge rating 15 or lower, which appears in an unoccupied space that he can see within 90 feet. The fiend disappears when it drops to 0 hit points. It obeys any verbal commands that Lucifer issues to it (no action required by him). If he doesn’t issue any commands to the fiend, it acts freely.


Lucifer. The name means “light-bringer” or “morning star”, but this powerful archfiend is the true prince of darkness. The Devil goes by many names: Satan, Beelzebub, Mephistopheles, the Lord of the Flies, the Father of Lies, or simply The Beast or The Adversary. He is the ultimate personification of evil and the Lord of Hell.

A beautiful angel, Lucifer led a rebellion against God. His fall from grace was dramatic, when God banished the archangel and all his allies, damning them to rule in Hell forever more.

Lucifer is often associated with the serpent who deceived Adam and Eve. Deception is a large part of The Devil’s remit, and his appearance varies as often as his name. Dante portrayed him as a giant, winged creature frozen from the waist-down in ice, his three faces each devouring a famous traitor—Judas, Brutus, and Longinus. Later descriptions portray a horned, trident-wielding
