Aura of Fear. Creatures within 30 feet of the daemonette must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the daemonette’s aura of fear for the next 24 hours.
Daemon Aura. Hostile creatures within 30 feet of the daemonette have disadvantage on Wisdom saving throws and saving throws against fear.
Heightened Senses. The daemonette has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks.
Magic Resistance. The daemonette has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
Soporific Scent. Any creature that starts its turn within 10 feet of the daemonette must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against the daemonette. Failure by 5 or more on this saving throw causes the creature to be charmed until the end of the daemonette’s next turn. On a successful saving throw, the creature is immune to the daemonette’s scent for 24 hours.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. The daemonette attacks three times.
Pincer Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 17 (2d12+4) magical bludgeoning and slashing damage. On a critical hit or when the daemonette reduces a target to less than 5 hit points, the target makes a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or gains the charmed condition for 3 rounds. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Aura of Fear. Creatures within 60 feet of the keeper of secrets must succeed on a DC 20 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the keeper of secrets’ aura of fear for the next 24 hours.
Daemon Aura. Hostile creatures within 60 feet of the keeper of secrets have disadvantage on Wisdom saving throws and saving throws against fear.
Gaze of Acquiescence (1/turn). As a bonus action, the keeper of secrets gazes onto a creature within 100 feet, forcing the creature to make a DC 20 Charisma saving throw. On a failed save, the creature falls under the keeper of secrets’ control (as the dominate monster spell) for 1 minute. Unlike the spell, the keeper of secrets need only spend a bonus action to take total control of all creatures under the effects of its gaze of acquiescence. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.
Heightened Senses. The keeper of secrets has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks.

Innate Spellcasting. The keeper of secrets’ innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 20, +12 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

  • At will–charm person, clairvoyance, hideous laughter, identify, locate creature, locate object, suggestion, vicious mockery
  • 5/day–confusion, legend lore, scry
  • 3/day–irresistible dance, mass suggestion

Magic Resistance. The keeper of secrets has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
Soporific Scent. Any creature that starts its turn within 30 feet of the keeper of secrets must succeed on a DC 20 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature is charmed until the end of the keeper of secrets’ next turn. On a successful saving throw, the creature is immune to the keeper of secrets’ scent for 24 hours.

ACTIONS
Multiattack. The keeper of secrets attacks once with its ætherblade and four times with its claws.
Ætherblade. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 30 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (4d6+6) magical slashing damage.
Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +12 to hit, reach 25 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6+6) slashing damage.

REACTIONS
Counterattack. When a creature adjacent to the keeper of secrets hits it with an attack, the keeper of secrets can spend its reaction to make a claw attack against the creature.
