Reapers are mobs which only spawn at night. They most commonly take the form of a transparent light blue phantom when searching for victims, but are a mix of a zombie and skeleton, while also baring red eyes and a dark complexion. They do not kill, only weaken. They will use a scythe to slowly decrease your hearts, then fly away. They leave the phantoms and other mobs to bring the finishing blow. These reapers will attack anything passive (villagers, pigs, etc) they’re more of a distraction so the other mobs can finish them off. When killed, reapers will drop a scythe (which does a bit more than an iron sword, and goes faster than one, too) and rotten flesh. I think reapers would be an interesting mob to see as they fly around as a fake phantom, but also trying to ward them off so they can’t open any weak spots for other mobs to exploit. One more thing! If a reaper is struck by an arrow in flight, it will fall and take damage. Same thing applies to tridents.
