Are any published monsters in Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition described as stealing souls (or otherwise interacting with souls)?


1 Answer 1


From the Monster Manual:

  • Demiliches are described as feeding souls to their phylacteries, but have no way to do so. Acererak-style demiliches devour souls.
  • Night Hags trap souls in their Soul Bags.
  • Liches feed souls to their phylacteries.

From Volo's Guide to Monsters:

  • Barghests eat souls (along with the bodies they occupy).
  • Devourers eat souls.
  • Alhoons and Illithiliches (both varieties of mind flayer liches) feed souls to their phylacteries.
