Aeralfos (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Medium humanoid (lizalfos), neutral evil
Dive Attack. If the aeralfos is flying and dives at least 30 feet straight toward a target and then hits it with a melee weapon attack, the attack deals an extra 9 (2d8) damage to the target.
Flyby. The aeralfos doesn't provoke an opportunity attack when it flies out of an enemy's reach.
Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) piercing damage, or 15 (1d6 + 2d8 + 3) piercing damage if made as a dive attack.
Deflect. The aeralfos adds 2 to its AC against one ranged attack that would hit it. To do so, the aeralfos must see the attacker and be wielding a shield.
The aeralfos is shorter, thinner, and more fragile than most lizalfos—standing just over 5 feet tall. Its lightweight body combined with powerful, bat-like wings give it terrific flying ability. Its diving sword attacks are lethal, even more so when a land-bound target has no way to retaliate.
