Special Attack. The marilith makes one attack with its longsword. On a hit, it chooses one of the following effects to occur.
Disarming Attack. The target must succeed on a DC 20 Strength saving throw or drop an item of the marilith's choice that it is holding, which lands at its feet.
Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (2d12 + 5) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 20) Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, the marilith can automatically hit the target with its tail, and the marilith can't make a tail attack against another target.

Maneuver. The marilith uses its Special Attack.
Marilith black bloods are mariliths that through endless slaughter, even of other demons, have evolved into a higher form of themselves, becoming faster, stronger, and smarter. Through the use of decisive maneuvers, they can cleave through squads of soldiers in an instant. A black blooded marilith is a very rare anomaly that occurs only in one in a million mariliths.
