Shapechanger. The apostle can use its action to polymorph into its apostle form, or back into its false form, which is humanoid. While in its apostle form, its size becomes Huge. Its statistics, other than its AC, are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn't transformed.

Keen Hearing and Smell. The apostle has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.


Multiattack. The apostle makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws, or two longsword attacks.

Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8 + 4) slashing damage.

The human that would become the slug count was the count of a small hold overrun by heretics. After he was certain his land had been purified, he returned only to see his beloved wife willingly participating in a heretical orgy. Killing the party in blind rage, he came face to face with his wife, who only smiled triumphantly in his unwillingness to kill her. Moments before he would have committed suicide, a behelit he had on his person for decades awakened, allowing him to sacrifice her to the God Hand and become an apostle. He continued to hunt "heretics", though many of his new targets were innocent, with enhanced zeal. Those that were captured were tortured, mutilated, and consumed by the count himself.
