Living Shadow. While in dim light or darkness, the dragon has resistance to damage that isn't force, psychic, or radiant.

Shadow Stealth. While in dim light or darkness, the dragon can take the hide action as a bonus action.

Sunlight Sensitivity. While in dim light or darkness, the dragon has disadvantage on attack rolls, as well as on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight.


Battleaxe. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) slashing damage.

Javelin. Melee or Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 30/120 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) piercing damage.

Shadow Breath (Recharge 5-6). The dragon exhales shadowy fire in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 24 (7d6) necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. A humanoid reduced to 0 hit points by this damage dies, and an undead shadow rises from its corpse and acts immediately after the dragon in the initiative count. The shadow is under the dragon's control.

Hexblood is the son of the shadow dragon Balragar and the oni host of the demon Woodwart. He loves and hates his father and will do anything to prove himself to his father.
