Incorporeal Movement. The Klavek fogwarden can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. It takes 5 (1d10) force damage if it ends its turn inside an object.

ACTIONS
Animate Corpse. The electricity emanating from a Klavek fogwarden can animate a single dead, dying, or unconscious creature up to Huge size within 20 feet, turning them into what looks like a zombie. Corpses raised this way are under the Klavek fogwarden’s electrical control, but are not undead (and cannot be turned or rebuked). When the Klavek fogwarden is slain or moves more than 20 feet from the animated corpse or animates a different corpse, the animated corpse collapses and cannot be animated by the Klavek fogwarden a second time. Use the spell description for animate object for the statistics for the animated corpses except that they return their normal—non-magical—movement rates and types (fly speed, climb speed, swim speed, burrow speed etc). As a bonus action, the Klavek fogwarden controls the animated corpse's movement and action.
Innate Spellcasting. The fogwarden's innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 14, +7 to hit with spell attacks) . It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
At will witch bolt (damage 2d12 lightning per round, concentration)
3/day fog cloud (radius 40 ft., concentration), chromatic orb (lightning version only, damage 4d8), lightning bolt (damage 8d6)
