From D&D Wiki
Medium monstrosity, chaotic evil
Skills Perception +8, Stealth +7
Aggressive. As a bonus action, the rougarou can move up to its speed toward a hostile creature that it can see.
Pounce. If the rougarou moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a bite or claw attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the rougarou can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.
Quick Reflexes. The rougarou gets one extra reaction.
Rampage. When the rougarou reduces a creature to 0 hit points with a melee attack on its turn, the rougarou can take a bonus action to move up to half its speed and make a bite attack.
Running Leap. With a running start, the rougarou can long jump up to 25 feet.
Standing Leap. The rougarou's long jump is up to 20 feet and its high jump is up to 10 feet, with or without a running start.
Multiattack. The rougarou makes three melee attacks, only one of which may be a bite attack.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 17 (2d10 + 6) piercing damage.
Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (2d8 + 6) slashing damage.
Unbridled Fury. In response to being hit by a melee attack, the rougarou can make one melee weapon attack with advantage against the attacker.
Of all the places in the world, the bayou is one of the most superstitious. From these dark and rancid, backwater swamps have sprung many a story of witchdoctors, evil spirits, and monsters. Out of all, however, the one that sends the most children to hid in the closet is the lycanthrope-like rougarou.
Bayou Beast. The rougarou hide in the most desolate of swamps, where so few souls live. It's in these places that you'll be most likely to see a rougarou, as they never venture far from home and only travel out of the bayou at night if at all. They wander their rancid territory and strike without prejudice. Rougarou aren't fond of travelers and attack any humanoids in or around their home.
Hunger and Violence. While similar in essence to lycanthropy, there is only one way to spawn a rougarou; witchcraft. To create a rougarou, a witch has to cast a specific curse on someone, usually as payback for something, and wait. At first, the afflicted seem completely normal, but a few months after the casting one aspect of the victim changes; their appetite. The cursed will become insatiably hungry for just about whatever is available; this is uncomfortable to witness but does little to draw suspicion of any kind of foul play, much less a curse. However, as it continues, the afflicted will feel random instances of intense aggression and become hungry for one specific item; long pig, or as it's known to most, humanoid flesh.
