Lavos Spawn (4e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
The spawn of an alien creature from the Far Realm, its presence suggests that a Lavos has risen to the surface.
 Lavos Spawn
A miniature Lavos whose whole body can be seen. Unlike a Half-Lavos, this creature is an almost exact clone of its parent, with a few... extra features.
 Lavos Spawn Tactics
Lavos Spawn battle using extremely weakened forms of its parent's attacks. Though it is not yet grown enough to use some of the stronger attacks, it supplements what it can use with powers its parent learned from the creatures of the planet. The only real rule a Lavos Spawn follows in battle is that if its shell is attacked, it instantly counters with a point-blank "Lavos Spawn Needle Counter." The Elder Lavos Spawn fights the same way.
 Lavos Spawn Lore
A character knows the following information with a successful Arcane check.
DC 20: Lavos Spawn are the offspring of a Lavos, which only appear when the Lavos of a planet has surfaced. Elder Lavos Spawn are always at least 100 years old.
DC 30: Lavos Spawn contain power of every living thing on the world in which they were born, but do not have the strength to use much of it. Elder Lavos Spawn can use more of this power, but still aren't strong enough to use them all.
 Elder Lavos Spawn Tactics
Elder Lavos Spawn are very similar to regular Lavos spawn. Both of them have very similar body structure, and both power their attacks with life force absorbed from the planet. Elder Lavos Spawn, however, are more capable of using that power. Elder Lavos Spawn, similar to it's parents, will not move during combat unless necessary. When attacked, the Elder Lavos Spawn, like regular Lavos Spawn, will instantly counter "Elder Lavos Spawn Needle Counter"
