Bonus Actions

Invisibility. The grig magically turns invisible until it attacks or casts a spell, or until its concentration ends (as if concentrating on a spell). Any equipment the grig wears or carries is invisible with it.

A grig appears to be a cat-sized grasshopper with a humanoid torso, arms, and head.

[2] Grigs can leap great distances. They have light blue skin, forest-green hair, and brown hairy legs, and usually wear tunics or brightly colored vests with buttons made from tiny gems. A grig stands 1-1/2 feet tall and weighs about 1 pound.
