Jaws Titan (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
large aberration, lawful evil
Transformation. A Titan shifter can transform into a Titan, in this case, the Jaws Titan. When the Titan shifter in human (or humanoid) form has a purpose in his heart and damages himself, he or she shifts into a Titan. The Titan forms out of air and manifests in seconds. The shifter's Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores stay the same (the ones in the stat block are from the Marcel, the shifter from Attack on Titan). Once the Titan shifter wants to revert back to humanoid form, he or she will pop out of the Titan's nape, and the body will slowly melt into steam.
Curse of Ymir. 13 years after its first transformation, the Titan shifter will die.
Regeneration. The Jaws Titan recovers 20 hit points at the start of each of its turns, and 10 to the person inside the Titan. If the Jaws Titan takes any form of damage to the nape of its neck, this trait doesn't function at the start of the Jaws Titan's next turn. The Jaws Titan only dies if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and doesn't regenerate.
Weak Point. The nape of the Jaws Titan's neck is a weak point. An attack which specifically targets the Jaws Titan's nape deals damage to the person inside (has 30 hp in the nape). If the person inside dies, the Jaws Titan is destroyed. You must climb up the Jaws Titan to the nape with a Melee attack, or you can try to shoot it with a ranged weapon at disadvantage.
Multi-Attack. The Jaws Titan makes two Claws attacks.
Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 19 (4d6 + 6) bludgeoning damage.
Jaws. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 51 (10d8 + 6) piercing damage. The Jaws Titan's jaws are so strong that they can break through strong materials like adamantite and hardened Titan skin.
2,000 years ago, the founder of the Titans, Ymir Fritz, died. Her powers were split into 9 powers, one of them being the Jaws Titan. It was passed down throughout the Eldian empire until the Marley empire took over the world and stole seven of the nine Titans, including the Jaws Titan. 100 years later, it was passed down to Marcel Galliard, an Eldian Warrior cadet living in the Liberio internment zone. As a child, he wanted freedom for his family from the persecution of the Marlian government, so he joined the Warrior program, a program that would let young Eldians inherit the Titans. He and his brother Porky joined, but to protect his brother from the lifespan of the Titanshifters he bad-mouthed Porky to the Marley officials and recommended that the Armored Titan go to Reiner, the weakest of Warriors.
Marcel is an outstanding Warrior, and is skilled in almost every field. In Human form, he can wield a gun with deadly accuracy for a 12 year old child, but his biggest strength is his leadership. Marcel knows how to convince people to follow his lead, and is an inspiring influence to his peers. He can keep a calm head under pressure, and makes the wise decision in the heat of battle. His influence is so strong that after he died sacrificing his life for Reiner, Reiner practically adopted his personality so he could better lead his friends in their undercover stealth mission.
The Jaws Titan is the smallest Titan of the Titanshifters, but in no way is the weakest. It is light enough to maneuver through trees like a monkey, and can go up places where other Titans can't get. The Jaws Titan has a massive set of jaws, which are it's defining feature. They can effortlessly bite through practically anything, whether it be human flesh or Titan skin. The Jaws Titan is the only known Titan to ever breach a Titan crystal, a crystal that encases a shifter in an ultra-hard material for protection, or, in the War Hammer Titan's case, control of a Titan.
Variant Trait: Skin Hardening
This is a trait that all Titanshifters can learn through practice. What it does is essentially harden the skin so that only adamantine and heavy-impact weapons could break through it. As an action or reaction, the Jaws Titan can turn a portion of their skin into hardened Titan skin, an almost indestructible material that weighs next to nothing more. When used, it remains for one minute before dissipating. This feature can only be used once per titan shift. If a hand is hardened, the claw attack deals double damage. You cannot harden your jaws, as they are already hardened. Increase the Jaws Titan's Challenge rating by one if this feature is used.
Alternatively, if the Jaws Titan shifter has ingested the armor serum, this ability can be used to create hardened tendrils from the body of the titan in order to create near-indestructable structures. As an action, the Jaws Titan's can make it's entire body become frozen in the hardened skin and cannot move (except for the nape). For every round following this one, the Jaws Titan can create up to 50 cubic feet of hardened Titan skin structures, so long as it all connects and can support itself. This can be done for the next minute, and remains even if the Titanshifter leaves the nape of the titan. If this feature is used, increase the challenge rating of the Jaws Titan by another 1. You must use the first skin hardening feature before you can have this one.
