Legendary Resistance (5/Day). If Lady Illugas fails a saving throw, she can choose to succeed instead.

Ethereal Sight. Lady Illugas can see 60 feet into the Ethereal Plane when it is on the Material Plane, and vice versa.

Incorporeal Movement. Lady Illugas can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. She takes 16 (3d6) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object, any creature Lady Illugas moves through in this way must make a DC 24 Wisdom saving throw or take 18 (4d6) necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces Lady Illugas to 0 hit points, she must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 + the damage taken, unless the damage is radiant or from a critical hit. On a success, Lady Illugas drops to 1 hit point instead.

Detect Life. Lady Illugas can magically sense the presence of living creatures up to 10 miles away that aren't undead or constructs. Lady Illugas knows the general direction they're in but not their exact locations.

Magic Resistance. Lady Illugas has advantage on saving throws against magic and magical effects.

Turn Immunity. Lady Illugas is immune to any effect that turns undead.

Unholy Toughness. Lady Illugas gains extra hit points equal to its Charisma modifier times its number of Hit Dice (included in the hit points).

Negative Energy Aura. When a living creature within 120 feet of the Lady Illugas would regain hit points, it regains half as much instead.

Marshal Undead. Undead creatures within a 60 feet of Lady Illugas have advantage on saving throws against effects that turn undead.

Shapechanger. Lady Illugas can use an action to polymorph into any undead creature, a humanoid or back into her true form.

  • While in the form of an undead creature equal to or less than her CR, other than her self, she takes on all the traits and actions of the creature but maintains her Legendary Resistance, Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma scores and spellcasting. Otherwise, she is that creature.
  • While in its humanoid form, Lady Illugas has no restriction to the abilities she can use but prefers to keep a low profile. She can take the form of any humanoid she has seen.

Regeneration. Lady Illugas regains 40 hit points at the start of her turn. If Lady Illugas takes radiant damage, this trait doesn't function at the start of her next turn. Lady Illugas only dies if she starts her turn with 0 hit points, doesn't regenerate and does not have an active phylactery.

Rejuvenation. If Lady Illugas has a phylactery, she gains a new body in 1d10 days, regaining all her hit points and becoming active again. The new body appears within 5 feet of the phylactery.

Shadow Stealth. While in dim light or darkness, Lady Illugas can take the Hide action as a bonus action.

Consume Life. As a bonus action, Lady Illugas can target one creature it can see within 5 feet of it that has 0 hit points and is still alive. The target must succeed on a DC 24 Constitution saving throw against this magic or die. If the target dies, Lady Illugas regains 21 (6d6) hit points.

Invocations. Lady Illugas has the following warlock invocations:

Spellcasting. Lady Illugas is an 18th-level spellcaster. Her spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 24, +16 to hit with spell attacks). Any spells cast by Lady Illugas are cast as if they are cast using a 5th level spell slot. All four spell slots can be used to cast any 1st level to 5th level spell Lady Illugas has prepared. Lady Illugas can has the following warlock spells known:

Cantrips (at will): eldritch blast, chill touch, mage hand, poison spray

6th level (1/day): circle of death
7th level (1/day): finger of death
8th level (1/day): demiplane
9th level (1/day): power word kill


Multiattack. Lady Illugas can cast 2 cantrips and 1 spell at 5th level or she can make 4 Deathly Touch attacks.

Deathly Touch. Melee Spell Attack: +16 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 38 (4d10) + 7 necrotic damage. The target must succeed on a DC 24 Constitution saving throw or its hit point maximum is reduced by the amount of damage taken until greater restoration or similar magic is cast on the creature and she regains the amount of necrotic damage as hit points. If the creature fails the save by 5 or more, they are also paralyzed for up to 1 minute. The target can repeat the saving throw at the beginning of each of its turns to end the paralyzed condition. If the hit points she gains exceeds her maximum hit pints, she gains the remaining as temporary hit points. In addition, the target's Strength score is reduced by 2d4. The target dies if this reduces its Strength to 0. Otherwise the reduction lasts until greater restoration or similar magic is cast on the creature. A humanoid slain by this attack rises as a wraith under Lady Illugas' control. She can have up to 7 wraiths under her control from this action.

Shadow Stride. Lady Illugas and up to seven willing creatures within 5 feet of it magically enter Shadowfell from the Material Plane, or vice versa.

Necrotic Breath (Recharge 5). Lady Ilugas exhales shadowy energy in a 60-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 26 Dexterity saving throw, taking 54 (12d8) necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. A humanoid slain by this attack rises 24 hours later as an undead creature under Lady Illugas' control, unless the humanoid is restored to life or its body is destroyed. Roll a 1d6 to determine what undead creature they become: 1 - shadow, 2 - specter, 3 - ghoul, 4 - ghast, 5 - ghost, 6 - wraith.

Possession (Recharge 5-6). One humanoid that Lady Illugas can see within 5 feet of it must succeed on a DC 24 Charisma saving throw or be possessed by Lady Illugas; she then disappears, and the target is incapacitated and loses control of its body. She now controls the body but doesn't deprive the target of awareness. She can't be targeted by any attack, spell, or other effect, and she retains her alignment, Intelligence, Wisdom, Charisma, and condition immunities. She otherwise uses the possessed target's statistics, but doesn't gain access to the target's knowledge, class features, or proficiencies.
The possession lasts until the body drops to 0 hit points, she ends it as a bonus action or she is forced out by effects like the dispel evil and good spell. When the possession ends, she reappears in an unoccupied space within 5 feet of the body. The target is immune to her Possession for 24 hours after succeeding on the saving throw or after the possession ends.

Wail (2/Day). Lady Illugas releases a deafening wail, provided that she isn't in sunlight. This wail has no effect on constructs or undead. All other creatures within 30 feet of her that can hear her must make a DC 24 Constitution saving throw. On failure, a creature drops to 0 hit points. On a success, a creature takes 70 (20d6) psychic damage.

Death Gaze. Each creature of Lady Illugas' choice that is within 30 feet of her and aware of it must succeed on a DC 26 Constitution saving throw or die. If a creature's saving throw is successful, the creature is immune to her Death Gaze for the next 24 hours.

Horrifying Visage. Each non-undead creature within 60 feet of Lady Illugas that can see it must succeed on a DC 24 Wisdom saving throw or be frightened for 1 minute. If the save fails by 5 or more, the target also ages 2d4 × 10 years. A frightened target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the frightened condition on itself on a success. If a target's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the target is immune to her Horrifying Visage for the next 24 hours. The aging effect can be reversed with a greater restoration spell, but only within 24 hours of it occurring.

Iron Maiden(3/day). Each creature of Lady Illugas' choice that is within 50 feet of her must succeed on a DC 26 Dexterity saving throw or die instantly. This is one of Lady Illugas favorite equipment of torturing creatures.

Replicate. As an action, Lady Illugas can take on traits or actions from an undead creature with 0 hit points within 5 feet of it. She can have a maximum of double her Charisma modifier traits and double herCharisma modifier actions replicated in this way. All DCs gained from traits or actions are Charisma based. Innate Spellcasting and Spellcasting can not be replicated.

"Let me hear your pain"

Lady Illugas is the first demizen. She has lived so long that she has the capability to layer the abilities she claims from the undead. She revels in the fun of torture, finding pleasure in the pain of others. Her voice is wispy and echoes or can become as loud as a dragons roar to the point of ear splitting pain. Her mere presence is able to age people to dust. Her gaze is strong enough to kill. Her breath is able to make the dead rise as undead monstrosities of there former selves. Her touch is so deadly it drives the spirit of the fallen to become a vile spirit of violence abiding her every whim. Her body becomes translucent and as she floats to her enemies she can take control and becomes them. Her home plane is that of never ending shadows, she travels back and forth as she desires. She is the Scourge of Pain, be afraid...very afraid.
