Good. The pegasus radiates a Good aura.

Divine Mount. Over the course of a short rest , a willing pegasus can form a bond with a rider. Once this bond is formed, the rider suffers no penalties for riding the pegasus without a saddle. Additionally, if an effect forces both the pegasus and its rider to roll a saving throw , the pegasus automatically succeeds if the rider succeeds. If the pegasus bonds with a new rider, the previous bond ends.


Hooves. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature and the pegasus moves at least 20 feet toward it before the attack, the target makes a DC 14 Strength saving throw , falling prone on a failure.


The pegasus charges an enemy. If it knocks its foe down, it flies away and charges again on its next turn. Otherwise, it continues to attack with its hooves.

Legends and Lore

With a Nature or Religion check, characters can learn the following:

DC 10 Pegasi aren’t simply horses with wings; they are celestials native to the heavenly realms.

DC 15 Though they can’t speak, pegasi are intelligent and understand words spoken to them.

DC 20 Good-aligned gods sometimes send pegasi to the Material Plane to assist mortals in need.


Pegasi are celestial creatures that appear as beautiful white horses with magnificent feathered wings. They spend most of their time in the sky and are skittish on the ground. While grazing or drinking, they keep one ear cocked for danger; a rustle or a snapped twig sends them bounding into the air.

Lofty Mount. A pegasus can make a trustworthy and loyal mount. However, it’s impossible to break and tame one like a horse. A pegasus is an intelligent being. Only a gentle and good-hearted person can win the trust of one of these shy creatures.

High Nests. Pegasi build nests in high eyries. They enter into life-long mating relationships. Despite speculation to the contrary, they give birth to live young instead of laying eggs. The expression “hunting for pegasus eggs” describes a useless and impossible task.

Planar Origin. Planar travelers sometimes spot pegasi traversing the Astral Plane or celestial realms, carrying messages for gods and angels. The gods also send pegasi to the Material Plane to help heroes in times of need. Wild pegasi on the Material Plane seem to have no such role and live much as wild horses do. Even these pegasi are often eager to participate in noble quests, however.
