The daughters of Graz'zt

Graz'zt apparently has a fairly large number of children, shocking I know. Many of you know about Iuz, the demigod and apple of his daddy's eye. I posted Rule-of-Three, another son, not that long ago. Today, I'm going to cover two of his daughters: Thraxxia, his personal assassin, and Belyara, a really obscure daughter who is currently having some daddy issues.

I'll be covering Athux, Graz'zt's son and general of his armies, soon.

Fiendish Blessing. Thraxxia’s AC includes her Charisma Bonus.

Innate Spellcasting. Thraxxia’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 18). Thraxxia can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
3/day: alter self, command, detect magic
1/day: plane shift (self only)

Magic Resistance. Thraxxia has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Spellcasting. Thraxxia is an 11th level spellcaster. Her spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 18, +10 to hit with spell attacks). Thraxxia knows the following sorcerer spells:
Cantrips (at-will): dancing lights, fire bolt, mage hand, prestidigitation, shocking grasp. truestrike
1st level (4 slots): false life, shield, sleep
2nd level (3 slots): detect thoughts, mirror image
3rd level (3 slots): counterspell, dispel magic, haste
4th level (3 slots): dimension door. greater invisibility
5th level (2 slots): dominate person
6th level (1 slot): disintegrate

Surprise Attack. If Thraxxia surprises a creature and hits it with an attack during the first round of combat, the target takes an extra 10 (3d6) damage from the attack.

Actions
Multiattack. Thraxxia makes two melee attacks.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d6+5) slashing damage plus 10 (3d6) necrotic damage.

Horror Nimbus (Recharge 5-6). Thraxxia magically emits scintillating, multicolored light. Each creature within 15 feet of her that can see the light must succeed on a DC 18 Wisdom saving throw or be frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If the creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to Thraxxia’s Horror Nimbus for the next 24 hours.

Teleport. Thraxxia magically teleports, along with any equipment she is wearing or carrying, up to 120 feet to an unoccupied space she can see.

Thraxxia is one of Graz’zt’s many daughters, her mother a long-dead mortal human. Thraxxia serves as Graz’zt’s personal assassin, and to date she has yet to fail in a mission given to her. To prove her worth to her father, she murdered three of her half-sisters. Thraxxia is vindictive and spiteful, traits that Graz’zt has nurtured in his beautiful daughter.


Thraxxia appears as a beautiful young woman, with long, dark hair and a cruel mien. A pair of small horns grows from her forehead, while a pair of somewhat smallish leathery wings sprouts from her back. Her gaze is sharp and predatory, and when she smiles or snarls, sharp teeth are revealed. Thraxxia’s small, shapely form is deceptively strong, containing the strength and power of a nalfeshnee, abilities she gained through treachery, wit and guile. Thraxxia frequently makes use of a variety of magical items when she is on the hunt.


Belyara
Large fiend (shapechanger), chaotic evil

Armor Class 20 (natural armor)

At will: disguise self (any humanoid form), major image
3/day: charm person, detect magic, mirror image, scrying, suggestion

Limited Shapeshifting. Belyara can use her action to change her lower half into normal human limbs, assuming a wholly human form. She reverts to her true form if she dies.

Actions
Multiattack. Belyara makes three attacks: one with her longsword and one with her intoxicating touch or two with her longsword, and one with her tail.

Intoxicating Touch. Melee Spell Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: The target is magically cursed for 1 hour. Until the curse ends, the target has disadvantage on Wisdom saving throws and all ability checks.

Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8+5) slashing damage, or 10 (1d10+5) slashing damage if used with two hands.

Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d8+5) bludgeoning damage. If the target is Medium or smaller, it is grappled (escape DC 17). Until the grapple ends, the target is restrained, Belyara can automatically hit the target with her tail, and Belyara can’t make tail attacks against another target.

Acid Spit. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 20 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (2d6) acid damage.

Belyara is one of the demon lord Graz’zt’s more obscure children. Until relatively recently, she was the prisoner of a powerful eladrin conjuror. It is uncertain how long she was a prisoner, and it is unknown how she escaped. What is known, however, is that she is extremely angry with her father, and now she seeks revenge against him for allowing her to languish for so long. It remains to be seen what form this revenge will take.

Belyara’s mother is a lamia noble, and she has inherited a number of abilities from her mother, such as her limited shapeshifting ability and many of her innate spellcasting abilities. Like a lamia noble, Belyara looks like an extremely beautiful dark-complexioned woman, with lustrous black hair and an intoxicating smile. Her lower body, however, consists of the muscular coils of a serpent. Her eyes are piercing and inhuman, golden in color, with the slitted pupils of a venomous snake. Like her lamia mother, she likes to adorn herself in finery whenever she can.

Belyara is prone to wanton behavior, not unlike both of her parents. She has also displayed the violent outbursts that lamia nobles are known for.
