Absorb Flesh. The body of a creature that dies while grappled by Ur-Vras is completely absorbed into Ur-Vras’s mass. No portion of it remains to be used in raise dead, reincarnate, or comparable spells that require touching the dead person’s body. If the type of creature absorbed was a living creature, Ur-Vras heals a number of hit point equal to the number of hit dice the creature had.

Regeneration. Ur-Vras ape regains 5 hit points at the start of its turn. If Ur-Vras takes acid or radiant damage, this trait does not function at the start of its next turn. Ur-Vras dies only if it starts its turn with 0 hit points and does not regenerate.

Semi-Amorphous. Ur-Vras can move through a space as small as 5 foot wide without squeezing.

Sunlight Weakness. While in direct sunlight, Ur-Vras has disadvantage on attack rolls and saving throws.

Innate Spellcasting Ur-Vras can cast the following spells innately, requiring no components:

At will: create bonfire (Elemental Evil Player’s Companion, p. 15) (3d8), detect thoughts, eldritch blast (three beams), minor illusion

3/d each: arms of Hadar (3d6), hunger of Hadar

1/d: vampiric touch (6d6)


Multiattack. Ur-Vras makes 1d3+1 slam attacks. Reroll the number of attacks at the start of each of Ur-Vras’s turns.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: 12 to hit, reach 10ft., one target. Hit: 19 (2d108) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 18) and restrained. Ur-Vras can grapple any number of creatures simultaneously, and this has no effect on its number of attacks.


At the beginning of each of its turns, Ur-Vras must succeed in a Charisma saving against DC 15 or lose one level of its self. The DC is increased by 1 each turn.

The effects of lost self are as follows (per failed saving throw):

1. Resemblance: The bodily mutations swallow any remaining identifiers specific to Vras such as his face. Parts may occasionally emerge but only momentarily: they act no different from any other part of Ur-Vras.

2. Voice: Ur-Vras becomes unable to produce humanoid sounds. Any attempts to speak result in horrifying moans and gurgles.

3. Personality: Vras’s alignment permanently shifts to Chaotic Evil.

4. Sanity: Vras becomes unhinged. Wisdom permanently becomes 6.

5. Humanity: Vras becomes unable to form coherent thoughts. Intelligence permanently becomes 4.

6. Memories: Vras becomes unable to retrieve any connection with his past self. His previous self is dead.
