From D&D Wiki
Medium elemental, chaotic evil
Saving Throws Constitution, Dexterity, Wisdom
Disease Relocation The Disease Elemental knows the location of all diseased people within 2 miles from its location. The elemental can use an action to Relocate to the Diseased creatures location. the stronger the sickness and the closer to death,the quicker it takes to arrive to its target.
Whirlwind Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 10 ft.,up to 3 creatures. Hit: 13 (3d8 + 3) poison damage. The Disease elemental forms into a tornado of disease and plague. all creatures within a 10 ft. radius must roll a DC17 constitution saving throw or take the above damage. if they fail, they also receive 1 random disease (can be found in Dungeon Masters Guide") the whirlwind can last up to 3 turns. for every turn a creature is in it, they take the above damage, and their disease becomes more severe.
Slam Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. hit: 14 (2d8+5)
Life Drain Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (3d6 + 3) Necrotic Damage. The elemental attempts to grapple a creature and that creature must roll a DC16 Dexterity saving throw. on a fail, the disease elemental begins to drain the creatures health and replace it with disease and infection. the creature takes the above damage for every turn it is still grappled by the Elemental. on the 2nd turn of being grappled, the creature revives a disease.
The Disease Elementals are created out of death and plague. imagine a great trading city, now ravaged by the plague. the piles of bodies and the smell of rats and flies forms a cloud of noxious gas. after a few days the Elemental forms with the mind of the disease. so if a creature has the Sewer Plague the elemental is the Mentality of that plague. they are almost always chaotic evil as they wish only to infect the healthy and bring death. as long as this Disease, there will be Disease Elementals.
