ACTIONS
Multiattack. The celestial centipede makes two attacks: one with its maw and one with its celestial fireball.

Maw. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature.
Hit: 33 (4d12 + 7) piercing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 11 Constitution saving throw or take 21 (6d6) poison damage. If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even after regaining hit points, and is paralyzed while poisoned in this way.

Celestial Fireball.RangedMagic Attack: +10 to hit, rance 150 ft., one target.
Hit: 27 (6d8) fire damage.

REACTION
Arcane Vomit. After it is hit in melee for the first time each round, the celestial centipede vomits a strange arcane substance in a 30-foot line that is 5 feet wide centred on the triggering attacker. Each creature in that line must make a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw, taking 49 (11d8) psychic damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

DESCRIPTION
The celestial centipede, also known as a fluorescent flower, seems to have a centipede’s body, an enormous tooth-filled mouth on their lower chest, and an almost ethereal upper neck and head. On their face/head is a flower that hangs limp while not attacking.

LOOT
A celestial flower.
