Some tieflings find their fiendish blood so overpowering that it gains a separate sentience. Such tieflings learn to draw this consciousness out of themselves, granting it a spectral form akin to a spiritualist’s phantom. These spirits mirror the tiefling’s pleasures and desires, though often in more dark and twisted forms.
Fiend Spirit: Rather than bonding to the phantom of a once living creature, a fiendblood conjurer animates a phantom powered by her own profane blood.
This phantom gains the ability score and spell-like ability racial traits of the tiefling’s heritage. A tiefling who selects this archetype at 1st level may select a variant heritage without taking the Fiendish Heritage feat. This heritage is chosen at 1st level and cannot be changed.
This ability replaces the fiendblood conjurer’s phantom’s emotional focus abilities gained a 1st level and alters the phantom.
Carrot and Stick (Su)
The fiendblood conjurer can allow her fiendish spirit to interject in conversations, taking over her voice and person for brief moments.
This ability replaces shared consciousness and fused consciousness.
Fiendish Form (Su)
At 3rd level, the fiendblood conjurer’s phantom gains increasingly fiendish traits. It gains the 1st-level base evolution available to an unchained summoner’s eidolon of the fiendblood conjurer’s fiendish parentage. It gains the next evolution at 8th level and every 5 levels thereafter (to a maximum of 4 evolutions at 18th level). If one of these evolutions would increase the fiendblood conjurer’s phantom’s evolution pool by 1, the spiritualist chooses a 1-point evolution to apply to her phantom. This evolution cannot be changed.
This ability replaces bonded manifestation.
Fiend’s Ascension (Su)
At 17th level, the fiendblood conjurer chooses a 1-, 2-, and 3-point evolution available to an unchained summoner’s eidolon of the fiendblood conjurer’s fiendish parentage and applies them to her phantom. These evolutions cannot be changed.
This replaces dual bond.
