Agile Feet. If Yamamai is subjected to an effect that allows her to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, she instead takes no damage if she succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if she fails.
Spellcasting. Yamamai is a 1st-level shukenja. Her spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 11, +3 to hit with spell attacks). She has following cleric spells prepared:
- Cantrips (at will): light, sacred flame, thaumaturgy
- 1st level (3 slots): animal friendship*, bless, cure wounds, detect taint*, protection from taint*, sanctuary, speak with animals*
Sutānaifu (Starknife). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 0 ft., one target.
Hit: 5 (1+4) slashing damage.
Hankyu. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 40/160 ft., one target.
Hit: 15 (1+4) piercing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 10 Constitution saving throw or become poisoned for 1 minute. If its saving throw result is 5 or lower, the poisoned target falls unconscious for the same duration, or until it takes damage or another creature takes an action to shake it awake.
Heart Sight. Yamamai touches a creature and magically knows the creature’s current emotional state. If the target fails a DC 10 Charisma saving throw, the sprite also knows the creature’s alignment. Celestials, fiends, and undead automatically fail the saving throw.
Invisibility. Yamamai magically turns invisible until it attacks or casts a spell, or until its concentration ends (as if concentrating on a spell). Any equipment she wears or carries is invisible with it.
