Jovoc - Small Fiend (CR 5)

The Jovoc is an obnoxious enemy, as it hurts your character through being hurt, its own attacks being somewhat underwhelming. It first appeared in the 3.0 Monster Manual II, and is a very underused fiend. I like 'em, and (spoiler alert) they will be appearing in my game tonight I suspect. Here is my conversion of them to 5e...

...You may notice I added an extra ability, the Vicious Skirmisher power. I did this to make them a bit more mobile, and to allow you to adjust that horrific aura they emit. If you want a Jovoc more like the original, ignore that power.
