The status blocks I used are found at This also gives greater detail to the backstory and usage of these creatures in a game.
I made some minor modifications and included extra abilities to pay tribute to the commonly associated Legend of Zelda OoT monster, Dead Hand (marked with *).
Please be aware, using these extra abilities increases the Challenge Rating of the monster as it now has ways to grapple multiple creatures from a greater distance with relatively high escape DCs.
