Magic Resistance. The swarm has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Swarm Construct. The scribeant swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a tiny scarab. The swarm can regain hit points from magic, resting, and the mending cantrip.

Beautiful Craftwork. When immobile, the swarm is indistinguishable from a collection of cunningly-made statuettes or jewelry.
