Lavos (4e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Monstrous and powerful, these parasites devour the life of a planet before sending their spawn to repeat the process.
Lavos is the "nameless" god who sundered the Living Gate to let the Far Realm into creation. Though he is little more than a mass of swirling tentacles, eyeballs, brain matter, and skin, he sometimes stabilizes into more comprehensible forms (though still maddening to behold). His unhinged minds are inconceivable to most natural creatures, but he has been known to be calculating.
Lavos opens every battle with a Scream of the Far Realm followed by Flaming Oblivion. If an enemy appears in its line of sight it uses Molecular Dissolution Beam during its next turn. It will use Far Realm Portal when an enemy gets close, but isn't in sight of the Molecular Dissolution Beam. At every opportunity it will use Impale against one enemy, and if it has Flaming Oblivion, it will use it again. When it cannot use any other form of attack, it will use Earthquake or Scream of the Far Realm. While it is in battle it will not move.
A character knows the following information with a successful Arcana check.
DC 30: Lavoids are sometimes called planet parasites. Hailing from the Far Realm, they exist only to destroy.
DC 40: Lavoids absorb the power of the people of the planet in which they reside. How they use it is unknown, but it is believed that a Lavos shares this power with its eventual offspring.
DC 50: In the strangest of legends, it is said that there is another creature inside the shell, that is even more powerful.
When a Lavoid descends, it sends a mental shriek out to every Lavoid, informing them not to come here. Therefore, there is only one per planet.
