Gargantuan dragon, neutral evil
Saving Throws Str +17, Dex +11, Con +16, Wis +12
Innate Spellcasting. The gleeok's innate spellcasting ability is Constitution (spell save DC 24, +16 to hit with spell attacks). The gleeok can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
At will: chromatic orb, fire bolt, magic missile, scorching ray
Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If the gleeok fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.
Multiattack: The gleeok makes five attacks. It can replace one of these attacks with casting a spell that it can cast at will or 3/day.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +16 to hit, reach 20 ft., one target. Hit: 29 (4d10 + 7) piercing damage plus 11 (2d10) fire damage.
Fire Bolt. Ranged Spell Attack: +16 to hit, range 120 ft., one target. Hit: 22 (4d10) fire damage.
Conjure Gleeok Head. The gleeok can cause a gleeok head to appear in an unoccupied space within 5 feet of it. It cannot conjure a fifth unless one of the previous four dies, but it can kill any of them as a bonus action.
It is said that all gleeoks existing today are direct descendants of the Primordial Gleeok, a ferocious force of pure destruction that is usually believed to be mythical. It is said by some to have existed near the Primordial Era, and said to be a mistake of the Golden Goddess of Life, Farore. She erroneously created a being of such power that it threatened to destroy all mortal life in the Light World, and was consequently slain by the Golden Goddess of Power, Din. Those who revere the Golden Goddesses believe they are incapable of mistake, and consider the mere mentioning of this creature to be sacrilegious.
Descriptions and tales of the Primordial Gleeok vary, but it is always a wild monster with at least five heads, over 60 feet tall, of a stark crimson hue. It is frequently said to have four legs unlike the bipedal gleeoks living today. Some interpretations of tales embellish it even further, saying it had seven heads, or even a hundred—but no one surviving today has seen it firsthand, thankfully.
Immortal Nature. A primordial gleeok doesn't require air, food, drink, or sleep.
