Mask of Power A doprillu’s unique wooden mask is the source of its power. A doprillu deprived of its mask loses its regeneration and its immunity to enfeebled and slowed, and it immediately becomes enfeebled 1. The enfeebled value increases by 1 at the start of each of the doprillu’s turns, to a maximum of enfeebled 4. If the mask is put back on, the doprillu immediately regains its abilities and loses the enfeebled condition. A creature can pull off the mask with a successful DC 34 Athletics check to Force Open.

Volcanic Veins (fire) Fiery magma runs through the doprillu’s veins. A creature that starts its turn grabbed by the doprillu takes 7d6 fire damage.

About

The aberrations known as doprillus are hulks with banded muscles who wear ornate masks at all times that fill their wearers with magical strength and fighting spirit. Doprillus love to battle, especially by grappling, and are eager to start brawls. On neutral ground, a doprillu offers to duel the strongest-looking opponent, but when home turf is invaded, no rules apply to the confrontation. As befits the superheated blood that fuels them, doprillus make their homes in warm locations: hot jungles, sunny deserts, and underground caverns near sulfur vents.

A doprillu’s stylized mask isn’t a part of the creature itself, though doprillus inherently understand the mask’s purpose and power. When born, doprillus start out weak and small. Once one matures and gains sufficient intelligence and manual dexterity, it carves its personal mask. The first time it dons the mask, the doprillu rushes out to seek a fight. This mask is never replaced, and it might be marred from hundreds of battles.
