Consume Likeness

5th-level transmutation

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Touch

Components: V, S

Duration: Concentration, up to 8 hours

The face and appearance of a creature you touch changes to match that of another creature of the same size and creature type that you clearly recall from memory. If you have eaten any of a corpse, you can produce an appearance resembling the creature that corpse once was (at any age) even if you have never seen the creature alive. If the target creature is unwilling, it can negate this spell with a successful Constitution saving throw. The target creature’s height, weight, facial features, voice, hair length, coloration, and distinguishing characteristics match the new likeness, although a successful Wisdom (Perception) or Intelligence (Investigation) check against the spell save DC can find subtle imperfections.

In addition, this spell affects how the target performs physically in ways that resemble those of the likeness.

When you cast the spell, note which of the likeness’s physical ability scores (Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution) is highest and which is lowest. In case of ties, the target picks one of the tied abilities. The target’s ability scores don’t change, but the target becomes weakened with its ability corresponding to the likeness’s lowest score and becomes strengthened with its ability corresponding to the likeness’s highest score. When the target makes an attack roll, saving throw, or ability check using the strengthened ability, that roll is made with advantage. Likewise, when the target makes an attack roll, saving throw, or ability check using the weakened ability, that roll is made with disadvantage. If there is a tie between ability scores, the target chooses among the tied scores which is the likeness’s strength or weakness.
