Special Traits

  • Divine Aura. The paragon knight or a friendly creature within 10 feet of it cannot be charmed or frightened, and has a +4 bonus to any saving throw it makes. These benefits cease to function is paragon knight is unconscious or slain.
  • Divine Blessings. The paragon knight is immune to disease.
  • Divine Smite. When the paragon knight hits with a melee weapon attack, it can expend a spell slot to deal additional radiant damage to the target, in addition to the weapon’s damage. The extra damage is 9 (2d8) for a 1st-level spell slot, plus 4 (1d8) for each spell level higher than 1st, to a maximum of 21 (5d8). The damage increases by 4 (1d8) if the target is a fiend or undead.
  • Spellcasting. The paragon knight is a 12th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 15). It has the following paladin spells prepared.


  • Multiattack. The paragon knight makes two Longsword attacks.
  • Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) slashing damage, or 9 (1d10 + 4) slashing damage if used with two hands to make a melee attack, plus 4 (1d8) radiant damage.
  • Lay on Hands. The paragon knight has a pool of 60 hit points to use with its lay on hands ability. It regains spent hit points from this pool when it takes a long rest. It can use this ability to cause a creature within 5 feet of it or itself to regain any number of hit points, up to its hit point maximum or the paragon knight’s pool of hit points is reduced to 0.
  • Sacred Weapon (1/short or long rest). The paragon knight adds +4 to hit attack and damage rolls for 1 minute, and its weapon is considered magical for the purposes of damage resistances.
  • Turn the Unholy (1/short or long rest). Each fiend or undead that can see or hear the paragon knight within 30 feet of the knight must make a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw. On a failed saving throw, it is turned for 1 minute. While turned, the creature must use its turns trying to move as far away from the paragon knight as it can, and it can’t willingly move into a space within 30 feet of the knight. It cannot take reactions, and can only take the Dash action, or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving.
