Bonus Actions

Champion’s Challenge. The death knight challenges one creature it can see within 30 feet of it. The target must succeed on a DC 15 CHA save or have disadvantage on attack rolls against creatures that aren’t the knight until the end of its next turn.


Parry. The death knight adds 3 to its AC against one melee attack that would hit it. To do so, the death knight must see the attacker and be wielding a melee weapon.

Soul Drain. When the death knight reduces a Humanoid to 0 HP, it can absorb the creature’s soul. The target must succeed on a DC 15 WIS save or immediately die, its soul becoming trapped in the death knight’s sword. The death knight has advantage on attack rolls for 1 minute after absorbing a soul. The creature can’t be restored to life until the death knight is permanently destroyed.
