When giant caterpillars reach a certain age, they spin silky cocoons and enter them, metamorphosing for up to a month, before emerging as beautiful — and quite large — butterflies. These giant butterflies have many wondrous colours all over their majestic wings, and their wing scales are highly prized for use in tonics and potions.

Variant: Poisonous Giant Butterfly

Sometimes, giant butterflies are poisonous, but the poisonous wing scales can be used as is or refined to make more potent toxins. The option presented here is a standard poisonous giant butterfly, but other variants exist, such as those with dizzying poisons that replicate the effects of a confusion spell in their victims. A poisonous giant butterfly has a CR of 1 (200 XP) and has the following action option:
Wing Scales (Recharge 6). The butterfly scatters toxic wing scales in a 15-foot cube centred around itself. Each creature in that area must succeed on a DC 11 Constitution saving throw or take 6 (1d12) poison damage and be poisoned for 1 minute. If a creature fails its saving throw by 5 or more, it is also paralysed while it is poisoned.
