Legendary Resistance (3/day). If the vignar fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.

Turn Resistance. The vignar has advantage on saving throws against any effect that turns undead.

ACTIONS

Multiattack. The vignar makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d10 + 7) piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) necrotic damage.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d6 + 7) slashing damage.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d8 + 7) bludgeoning damage.

Frightful Presence. Each creature of the vignar's choice that is within 120 feet of the vignar and aware of it must succeed on a DC 15 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 the vignar's Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Miasmic Breath (Recharge 5-6). The vignar exhales a black, withering mist in a 30-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw, taking 54 (12d8) necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

A humanoid killed by this effect rises at the start of the vignar's next turn as a skeleton under the vignar's control, and follows verbal orders to the best of its ability.


Translating from draconic as "the ash of his black flame", arixen vutha vignar - shortened to vignar - are undead dragonoids created by the dragon god of undeath, Falazure. These beasts are often sent to act as servants to favored followers of the dragon god. Though they follow their new masters' orders to the letter, their only true loyalty is to Falazure himself. More than once an upstart dragon worshiper has found themselves betrayed and torn apart by the vignar for overstepping their bounds.

An arixen vutha vignar appears similar to a sickly thin dragon, standing up on its hind legs like a humanoid. With translucent and colorless scales, and twisted asymmetrical horns, it is impossible to tell what type of dragon the creature was when it was alive, if indeed it ever was a true dragon to begin with. Indeed, arixen vutha vignar seem to possess characteristics from all the known types of chromatic dragons.

In truth, no one knows for certain where the vignar originally came from. One popular theory states that this wretched fate is imposed upon those dragons who manage to earn Falazure's wrath. Others say that the vignar were never actually living beings, but sprouted forth when Falazure breathed into the earth itself. Falazure himself declines to answer, preferring the mystery as a part of his own vain allure.
