At will: blur, detect thoughts, disguise self, mage hand, minor illusion

1/day each: dominate person, gaseous form, plane shift, true seeing

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. 
Hit: 11 (2d8 + 2) slashing damage, and the target is cursed if
it is a creature. The magical curse takes effect whenever the target takes a short or long rest, filling the target with ennui. The cursed target gains a level of exhaustion. The curse lasts until it is lifted by a remove curse spell or similar magic.
