Topaz Carbuncle (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Tiny celestial, any good
Saving Throws Con +6
Avoidance. If the carbuncle is subjected to an effect that allows it to make a saving throw to take only half damage, it instead takes no damage if it succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if it fails.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage.
Curl. The carbuncle curls into a ball and braces itself. Until the start of its next turn, the carbuncle has resistance to all forms of damage except for psychic damage.
Tremor (Recharge 5-6). The carbuncle makes the earth shake in its immediate vicinity. All creatures within a 5-foot radius of the carbuncle must succeed on a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw or be knocked prone.
Cover. If a hostile creature within 5 feet of the carbuncle attacks a friendly creature that is also within 5 feet of the carbuncle, the carbuncle can use a reaction to take the attack in place of the friendly creature.
Carbuncles are foxlike denizens of the upper planes notable for their gleaming coats and their insatiable curiosity. They can occasionally be found exploring the material plane, either of their own initiative or as the familiars of mages.
Fantastical Fox. A carbuncle resembles a fox with a blunted muzzle, large ears, three bushy tails, and a sleek fur coat that glitters like crystal when it catches the light. Their fur comes in a variety of often fantastical colours, such as ruby, topaz, or emerald. Whatever the shade of its coat may be, every carbuncle sports a bright red gemstone on its brow, which is said to have healing properties.
Vulpine Familiars. Carbuncles are compelled to explore new and unfamiliar places by their insatiable curiosity, and will happily put up with anyone who provides them the opportunity so long as they aren’t abusive or cruel. This makes them easy to summon and an ideal choice of familiar for an inexperienced mage.
Carbuncles may be summoned with the find familiar spell.
Earthly Guardian. Topaz carbuncles are made of sturdier stuff than their emerald kin, and with this greater fortitude comes a willingness to protect those in danger. If a topaz carbuncle comes across a defenseless creature that is under attack, it will leap in without a moment’s hesitation and intercept the blow so that the victim can escape.
