Lady Death as a Warlock Patron

 Image of Lady Death

Lady Death is one of my favorite comic book characters. Even if it has been some time since I read any comic book I am still going to try and stat her as a Warlock’s Patron.  I will later try to stat her as a NPC and even a player character.

Lady Death has evolved and changed over time. There has been a few versions since her creation in Chaos Comics, and I have not read all of them. I will do my best to stay true to Lady Death but will mostly go off what I think is best and fits my ideal.

Expanded Spell List

1st: Bane, Bless

2nd: Spiritual Weapon, Enhance Ability

3rd: Beacon of Hope, Animate Dead

Unarmored Defense

Beginning at 1st level, while you are wearing no armor, your AC equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Charisma modifier.

Extended Training

Starting at level 1, you gain proficiency with marital weapons, shields and one skill of your choice.


Starting at level 6, when you are hit with an attack you may use your reaction to make an attack agents the creature that attacked you. You may use a spell for this attack but the spell must target only one creature.

Love Me or Fear Me

Starting at level 10, creatures within 30 ft that can see you must make a Wisdom Save vs your Spell DC. On a fail they become charmed or frightened by you.  It is up to the GM to determine if the creature is charmed or frightened and how they would otherwise react to you. If you or an ally become hostile to a creature that  is charmed by this ability that creature gets another save with advantage. If a creature passes they are immune to this effect for the next 24 hours.

Death’s Embrace

Starting at level 14, close calls with death bring you vigor. When you stabilize or are revived after being reduced to 0 hp you may gain the benefit of taking a short rest. You can not use this ability again until you finish a long rest.
