    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because episode 6 hasn't been aired yet, and given how little description of said character is given, I'm relatively sure the Future Works Policy applies.

  • It has aired. Yesterday in fact

  • Ah, then it's episode 5, not 6. Will edit and retract my vote.

  • @Jenayah the episode that aired last night is indeed episode 6, not 5. Feb 27 '20 at 5:23

    It seems like some sources (e.g. this Arrowverse wiki) are considering the last episode of Crisis on Infinite Earths, which took place during the Legends timeslot, to be episode 0 of season 5. Which makes "Mortal Khanbat" the sixth episode, albeit numbered "5".

It's a bit hard to tell from your image, but this review indicates that he re-summoned the Pùca from Season 4.

He’s trying every mystical solution he can find - bringing back a pooka from last season, making Nora’s kid come to the House of Mystery to wish him healthy again, shouting at archangels to cut a deal, something untoward with Ray’s foreskin. As each attempt fails, he lashes out harder and looks and acts more pathetically desperate. It’s so good, and so true to how I see the character in my head.

Quoting from the wiki entry:

Image of the Pùca

Healing: they are able to heal injuries as one was shown to heal a wound on Constantine's forehead.

They are primarily a creature of Celtic folklore, and like many folklore creatures, their powers vary considerably by the telling. In DC Comics, Tawky Tawny has self-described as a Pooka before.
