Huge monstrosity, unaligned
Saving Throws Str +12, Con +10
Multiattack. The anjanath makes two attacks, one with its bite and one with either its tail or feet.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 32 (4d12 + 6) piercing damage. If the target is a Medium or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 17). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the anjanath can't bite another target.
Tail. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 25 (3d12 + 6) bludgeoning damage.
Feet. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (4d6 + 6) slashing damage.
Fire Breath (Recharge 5-6). The anjanath exhales fire in a 60-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must make a DC 21 Dexterity saving throw, taking 63 (18d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
Anjanath are large predatory brutes and prowl dense forests and jungles in the search of prey, consisting of anything that is smaller than itself. Aside from breeding, anjanath tend to keep to themselves, marking their territory with their mucus and viciously defending it should another anjanath or large predator invade.
The Nose Knows. Besides its considerable physical strength and endurance, the anjanath has an exellent sense of smell, which far surpasses its rather lacking eyesight. This keen smell stems from its sophisticated nasel crest, which extend when aroused, to increase air intake. Furthermore, it developed incindiary glands in its throat and nasal cavities, igniting its saliva and mucus, creating an improvised flamethrower-sneeze.
