Legendary Resistance (3/Day). If Ryhan, The Soul Eater fails a saving throw, he can choose to succeed instead.

Soul Marker. A creature marked with Soul Marker has their soul ripped out when they die, which is then eaten by Ryhan. Ryhan heals for half of his current hit points, rounded down, and the creature cannot be raised through anything less than a wish spell or divine intervention. This effect ends if Ryhan dies.


Multiattack. Ryhan makes four attacks: two with his claws, one with his horns, and one with one of his special abilities.

Horns. Melee Weapon Attack: +18 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 54 (6d10 + 17) piercing damage.

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +18 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 45 (5d10 + 17) bludgeoning damage.

Soul Absorb (recharge 5-6). Ryhan sucks in a massive breath, dealing necrotic damage to those around him in a 20 ft radius. Creatures take 36(2d20 + 10) necrotic damage, and Ryhan is healed for half that amount for each creature affected.

Poison Breath (recharge 5-6). Ryhan lets out his noxious breath in a 30-foot cone. Creatures affected must make a Constitution save, taking 77(7d12 + 25) poison damage on a failed save, and half as much on a successful one.

Ground Smash. Ryhan smashed the earth with one of his fists, causing shards of debris to shower nearby foes. Ryhan smashed a 5-foot square within 20 feet of him. Creatures in a 10-foot radius of his targeted area must make a Dexterity saving throw. Creatures take 47 (8d8 + 15) bludgeoning damage and are knocked prone on a failed save, and take half as much and are not knocked prone on a successful on.


Ryhan can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. Ryhan regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

Regenerate. Ryhan regains 10 hit points.
Attack. Ryhan makes a claw attack.
Soul Marker. Ryhan puts the Soul Marker on a creature. He can only have one Soul Marker active at any time, but can move it with this action.
Soul Dredge (Costs 3 Actions). Ryhan can dredge the soul of any creature he has consumed within the last year. The soul becomes corporeal and fights as though it were alive and in top physical condition. Ryhan controls this creature. Ryhan can only dredge one soul at any given time. Ryhan has one of each of these standard souls in his stomach: Balor, Solar Angel, Beholder, Ancient Black Dragon, Androsphinx.


Ryhan, the Soul Eater, is a wandering demon in the infinite Abyss, who often wanders to different planes to consume the souls of powerful creatures to satiate his never-ending hunger. If Ryhan didn't have the overwhelming urge to continue to eat souls, he would probably be a good contender for the over-arching ruler of the Abyss. Ryhan is vastly intelligent, despite his single-mindedness, and tends to target solitary creatures as opposed to those in large companies. He will eat anything if hungry enough, however, and has, many times in the past, eaten other demons to satiate himself. However, Ryhan could, at any point, decide to stop wandering and focus and the end goal to truly satiate himself; plane invasions.
