Faerie Form. The noble can magically change its size between Large, Medium, and Tiny as an action. While Tiny, the bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage dealt by the noble’s attacks is halved. Additionally, it has disadvantage on Strength checks and advantage on Dexterity checks. While Large, the noble has advantage on Strength checks. Its statistics are otherwise unchanged.

Faerie Light. As a bonus action, the noble can cast dim light for 30 feet, or extinguish its glow.

Innate Spellcasting. The noble’s spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 17). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will: animal messenger , detect evil and good , detect magic , disguise self

3/day each: charm person , scrying , zone of truth

1/day each: dream , geas , heroes’ feast , magic circle , polymorph (self only)

Magic Resistance. The noble has advantage on saving throws against spells and magical effects.


Multiattack. The noble makes two glittering scimitar attacks.

Glittering Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d6 + 5) slashing damage plus 10 (3d6) cold, fire, lightning, or psychic damage (its choice). 

Gleaming Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. This attack ignores half or three-quarters cover . Hit: 9 (1d8 + 5) piercing damage plus 14 (4d6) cold, fire, lightning, or psychic damage (its choice).  

Evil Eye (Gaze). The noble targets one creature not under the effect of a faerie’s Evil Eye within 60 feet. The target makes a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw . On a failed saving throw, the noble chooses one of the following effects to magically impose on the target. Each effect lasts for 1 minute.

  • The target falls asleep . This effect ends if the target takes damage or another creature uses an action to rouse it.
  • The target is frightened . This effect ends if the target is ever 60 feet or more from the noble.
  • The target is poisoned . It can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.


Faerie Step (Recharge 56). The noble magically teleports up to 60 feet to a space it can see.


Riposte. When the noble is hit by a melee attack made by a creature it can see, it makes a glittering scimitar attack against the attacker.

Vengeful Eye. When the noble is hit by a ranged attack or targeted with a spell by a creature within 60 feet, it uses Evil Eye on the attacker if they can see each other.


The noble closes to fight in melee if possible. While doing so, it uses Vengeful Eye as its reaction to put isolated ranged attackers to sleep. If it feels outmatched by a strong melee opponent, it uses its reaction to make a glittering scimitar attack and then uses Faerie Step to move away on its turn. It flees when reduced to 55 hit points or fewer. Once out of sight, it casts disguise self .

Legends and Lore

With an Arcana or History check, characters can learn the following:

DC 10 Faeries are magical, flying creatures.

DC 15 Some faeries belong to a seelie court, which means they are often friendly to outsiders who meet their standards of behavior. Faeries that belong to an unseelie court are unpredictable and dangerous. There is no obvious way to tell a faerie’s allegiance.

DC 20 Faeries abide by strange, arbitrary rules. If you learn a faerie’s rules, you may gain power over it.


Members of faerie nobility are gossamer-winged humanoids of unearthly beauty. Each rules its own domain in the Dreaming, though they often gather at the seelie or unseelie court of a powerful archfey.


1 Wishes to escort you to a royal faerie court, where you will be feasted and entertained. If the knight is seelie, you will be allowed to leave the court as well

2 Wishes to joust or shoot against a champion; the loser must pay a bag of gold or reveal its true name

3 Eloping with a mortal noble; being pursued by the noble's family

4 In its lair or court; demands a gift from uninvited guests

5 Hunting a white stag

6 Hostile; attacks on sight

7 Part of a royal court or a masquerade ball

8 Lazily lying on the grass, playing a lute or listening to a pixie recite poetry

9 Celebrating a holiday; friendly to travelers today (though not necessarily tomorrow)

10 Riding forth against foes, such as hostile treants or an opposed faerie court


1–3 DC 16 Perception check: nearly imperceptible footprint
