The anathema has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects and any creature that makes a spell attack against the colossus has disadvantage on the attack roll.
Any creature of the anathema’s choice, other than a snake or a yuan-ti, that starts its turn within 30 feet of the anathema and can see or hear it must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened of snakes and yuan-ti. A frightenedtarget can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a target’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the target is immune to this aura for the next 24 hours.
The anathema can use its action to polymorph into a Huge giant constrictor snake, or back into its true form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed.
Shed Skin (Champion Trait, recharges after a short or long rest).
If the anathema is bloodied, it can remove one condition or effect it is suffering, and it can use its champion actions.
The anathema has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks and on saving throws against being blinded, charmed, deafened, frightened, stunned, or knocked unconscious.
