Lightning Blood. A creature within 1 meter of the death kiss takes 5 (1d10) lightning damage whenever it hits the death kiss with a melee attack that deals piercing or slashing damage.

Maneuvers. The death kiss uses maneuvers (maneuver save DC 16). It has 15 stamina dice which are d8s, a dice limit of 4, regains all expended stamina dice when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total stamina dice (rounded up) when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following maneuvers:

At will: grapple (Tentacle only)

1 stamina die: spring attack

Spellcasting. The death kiss uses Occult (Int) to cast spells (spell save DC 12, +4 to hit with spell attacks). It has 5 mana, a mana limit of 2, regains all expended mana when it finishes a long rest and regains half its total mana (rounded up) when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

Cantrips (at will, 13th-level spellcaster): blood siphon

1 mana: analyze blood, blood drain, blood purge, bloodhound

Actions (3)

Tentacle. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 4 m. Hit: 14 (3d6 + 4) piercing damage. If the death kiss uses the grapple maneuver, the target is restrained until the grapple ends. The death kiss has ten tentacles.

Blood Drain. One creature grappled by a tentacle of the death kiss must make a DC 16 Fortitude saving throw. On a failed save, it takes 22 (4d10) lightning damage, and the death kiss regains half as much health.
