Summoned by evokers
Vexes spawn as part of an evoker's summoning attack; the evoker signals this attack by producing off-white smoke and a high-pitched horn-like sound. When summoned, exactly three vexes appear near the evoker. An evoker can summon additional vexes even if some still remain alive from the last summoning.
Vexes attack players, villagers[JE only] or adult villagers[BE only], iron golems, and wandering traders if an evoker summoned them, and any other target as commanded by their summoning evoker. They still attack these mobs even when they do not have a weapon. They are capable of flying through the air, and can freely pass through any block, including water and lava, without taking damage. While attacking, they glow red and lunge at their target. If any mob attacks a vex, any vexes in the area become hostile toward it.

- BoundX: When a vex is idle, it wanders, selecting air blocks from within a 15×11×15 cuboid range centered at X,Y,Z =
BoundZ. This central spot is the location of the evoker when it summoned the vex, or if an evoker was not involved, it is the location the vex first attempted to idly wander.

- LifeTicks: Ticks of life remaining, decreasing by 1 per tick. When it reaches zero, the vex starts taking damage and
LifeTicksis set to 20.
