  • Cunning Action. On each of its turns, the master spy can use a bonus action to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.
  • Evasion. When the master spy is subjected to an effect that allows it to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, the it instead takes no damage if the save is successful, and only half damage if the roll is a failure.
  • Martial Advantage. Once per turn, the master spy can deal an extra 10 (3d6) damage to a creature it hits with a weapon attack if that creature is within 5 feet of an ally of the master spy that isn’t incapacitated.
