Temperantia is a colossal angel, a living fortress, and the true embodiment of the Cardinal Virtue of Temperance. Its body is over 100 feet tall, armored in exquisite celestial gold plates. It lacks legs, instead hovering within a tornado it conjures to wreak havok on lands of darkness. Two immense tree-like arms are affixed by ball joints of sizzling energy. Each ends in four segmented fingers, each fingertip a cannon than can rapidly shoot blazing darts of divine wind and light. A halo of the First Circle glows within the swirling clouds above.
Most blows to Temperantia are like waves crashing against a castle wall. Its vulnerability is its angelic countenance, embedded in its upper torso. The face itself can shoot beams from its eyes and forehead; or lash at foes with a black many-tentacled tongue.
The tornado surrounding Temperantia has its own hazards not directed by the angel itself. Objects of Large size or smaller are flung around, including slabs of rock torn from the ground. At the DM's discretion, creatures in its area of effect may (at the start of their turn) require Dexterity saving throws to avoid being hit by debris, or Strength saving throws to avoid being pushed by the gale.
