Ekans: Poison Type

Ekans quickly started shoving items into his bag. He had to leave, they would be here any moment now. He froze as someone slammed their fist heavily into his front door and a muffled, gruff voice yelled from the other side, "Come out here, Arbo. If you come quietly, your consequences won't be so dire." ignoring the voice, he quickly slipped his bag on and slithered over to the chimney as the voice behind the door cried out again, "Come on out, I know you're in there!" After taking one last glance at his home, he pressed himself on the inside of the chimney and started to quickly climb up.

The older Ekans are, the longer their body grows. There are rumors that there is an Ekans that is so long it spans an entire city, but most claim it's just a bedtime story. When they are born, Ekans are not poisonous, but as they get older, poison will start to form inside their fangs, allowing them to hurt foes and adding a little extra sting to anything they bite. By flicking their tongue about, they can smell the area around them. If an Ekans throws up, it can be a death sentence for them because their strong stomach acid will eat away at the inside of their throat, causing them to coil in pain and eventually die if not treated quickly.

Ekans’ movements are extremely stealthy. It is hard for anyone to see them as they slither low to the ground. Their favorite food tends to be eggs, but most will only eat unfertilized eggs that will never hatch into another creature. When they eat large things, they will unhinge their jaw and swallow their food whole. The more they eat, the harder it is for them to move as they slowly digest their food.

Most Ekans love to live high up in the trees. They will build small houses that are barely noticeable from the ground in tree branches and often can be mistaken for vines or canopies. When they sleep, they coil themselves up tight, barely taking up any room at all.

Abilities: Pick One

Intimidate: You grin as your foe tries to push themselves back up. Your last attack had hit hard and you can see new fear in their eyes. They had underestimated you before, but now that they know your true strength, they are terrified.

At the start of your turn on the first round of combat, all hostile creatures within line of sight must make a Wisdom saving throw. If failed, they become frightened for a number of rounds equal to your proficiency bonus or until they take damage. Your DC save is 8+Proficiency+Charisma.

Shed Skin: Particles of poison stick to your outside coating, oh this just won't do. You quickly slide out of your shell and leave your old one behind.That was better, now you could focus on attacking.

Twice per short rest, if you have a condition you may take a main action to heal one condition.

Unnerve: Your foe glances over at you as they raise the berry to their lips. You harshly glare at them and yell, “ Hey, that's against the rules, you can’t eat that mid battle!” They hesitate. Good, you're getting through to them, you will have to convince them not to eat it, if they don't listen to you and eat it you're in deep trouble.

You may use your reaction to prevent any enemy within 30 feet from using a consumable item (such as a scroll or potion).

Ekans was curled up tightly inside her mother's warm coil; the warmth that she gave off was home to her. It was dark in here, but not frightening. To her, the dark was comfortable. She smiled. This was the only place in the world she wanted to be right now, it was perfect. She felt her mom's body suddenly get tense, as her mother quietly whispered, "Say completely still." Her heartbeat started to race, what was going on? From outside of her mother's embrace, something exploded, causing them both to flinch. Was something attacking them?
