Aura of Disease. Creatures within 5 feet of the angel of pestilence cannot gain advantage on attack rolls against it.

Exalted Wrappings. The angel of pestilence is embalmed in pages torn from the Book of Exalted Deeds. Whenever the angel of pestilence scores a critical hit, the runes on the wrappings glow, granting the angel of pestilence an extra action she may take immediately.


Multiattack. The angel of pestilence makes two sarcophagus fist attacks or two symbol of the plague scarab attacks.

Sarcophagus Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 26 (4d12) bludgeoning damage.

Symbol of the Plague Scarab. Ranged Spell Attack: +7 to hit, range 30 ft., one target. Hit: 26 (4d12) poison damage, and the target’s forehead is branded with a scabbed-over sigil. At the end of each branded creature’s turn, increase by 5% the chance the Voice of Triumph gives a misleading answer if the branded creature did not make an attack during its turn that included the angel of pestilence. Announce to the players that “The Voice of Triumph becomes further corrupted!”

Pestilent Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one branded target. Hit: 26 (4d12) piercing damage, and the target must choose one of the following options below (read the options to the target).

  • Make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or become blighted with pestilent grubs. At the end of each of the blighted creature’s turns, the pestilent grubs burrow deeper toward the target’s heart—that creature takes 26 (4d12) fire damage and is treated as if it had just failed a death saving throw.
  • Hastily amputate its own arm or leg (roll randomly to determine which limb is infected), stopping the spread of the pestilent grubs. (The rules for losing limbs can be found in the 5th-edition rulebooks under Lingering Injuries.).

Apocalyptic Locust Swarm (Recharge 6). The angel of pestilence breathes a 30-foot cone of two‐headed locusts. Each creature in that area must make a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw or take 70 (20d6) poison damage. The first time a creature is slain by the angel of pestilence’s breath weapon, that creature’s body melts into a pool of eldritch titan bile that burns through the floor, revealing a previously-hidden tomb beneath.

The tomb displays a powerful relic—the khopesh of extinction—but those in the tomb when the False Relic is taken are entombed unless they succeed on a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw to escape.


Hymn of the Consumed (Recharge 5–6 while at least one creature is branded). When the angel of pestilence slays a creature, she begins reciting a guttural, gurgling hymn and weeps tears of pestilent grubs, as if suffering a moment of remorse. Tell the players the grubs might escape the chamber and blight the relics in the Sealed Reliquary (there is a 4-in-6 chance) unless a living creature offers itself as a host for the teeming grubs (see Pestilent Bite). Roll the die in the open if no creature offers itself as a host.
