Let’s see what my father thinks of the displacer beast.

Marona (Displacer Beast)

Ooooh! Is that six legs?

Lucian J. Introcaso

The monstrous, six-legged marona is a muscle-rippled, 800-pound, infernal panther with two tentacles that end in mouths coming out of its shoulders.

Infernal Pets.Greater devils create maronas from the souls of evil awakened animals. The giant cats live in packs among the fiendish soldiers of the Blood War. Their stealth and speed make maronas ideal ambushers and scouts. The extra mouths at the ends of their tentacles make them expert trackers, able to follow the scent of any creature on the same plane.

猎人的凡人。When a mortal breaks a contract with a greater devil, the devil sends one or more maronas to the Material Plane to hunt the mortal. Though the great cats are often sent to kill their victims, they have the ability to grab another creature with their tentacles and drag it back to the Nine Hells alive.

Contracted Fiends.Greater devils often offer the services of a pack of maronas as a way to tempt mortals into deals. Humanoids willing to sell their soul or service to a devil could get the faithful service of a pack to act as assassins, guardians, hunters, or soldiers bolstering an army.

Camouflage.The marona has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks made to hide in areas of dim light or darkness.

Keen Smell.The marona has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.

Pounce.If the marona moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with its claws on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the marona can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.

Track Creature.If the marona gets the scent of a creature, it knows the direction to the creature’s location, as long as that creature is on the same plane as the marona. If the creature is moving, the marona knows the direction of its movement.
