Agent of Chaos Water Nymph

The creature in front of you rapidly transforms into a delicate figure with a semi-scaled body toned to perfection, reflecting light in a multitude of hues, while exotic, curving tattoos or sigils upon her play about her form. Her alien beauty is painful to behold.

TACTICS

Before Combat Due to her magic immunity, this creature does not cast ability-increasing spells upon herself, instead using them as boon gifts for her allies. She is known to suppress her chaos field and disguise her form to hide her blinding beauty until she is forced into battle (or until a true seeing spell reveals her true form and the onlooker must save).

During Combat If forced into combat she releases her chaos field and reverts to her true form as free actions and then sets about casting cresting wave, using her dagger only against mages.

Morale She never fights to the death; though she is a gambler, when she does retreat she flees into the water if possible.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Chaos Field (Su)

Any supernatural, spell or spell-like ability within 10 feet of an agent of chaos automatically causes a mishap. Continuous magical effects such as those created by magic items trigger only once per chaos field and if the spell is negated it is only suppressed for 1d4+1 rounds. Supernatural effects are considered to have an effective caster level equal to the creature’s HD and its effective spell level is equal to half the creature’s HD.

These effects can be negated with a successful save against the DC of the affected spell or spell-like ability if the spell had no saving throw, this effect is negated by a successful Will Save. The agent can suppress this field as a standard action, reactivating it is a free action.

Change Shape (Su)

Agents of chaos can assume any form three times per day as if using polymorph.

Infusion of Chaos (Su)

All of the base creature’s attacks gain the chaos alignment descriptor, and all supernatural attacks, spells and spell-like abilities that deal damage are altered so that half the damage is dealt by chaos (gaining the chaotic descriptor) (regardless of alignment bypassing certain resistances).

Pandemoniac Corruption (Su)

If the base creature is an outsider, it no longer reproduces through normal means. Rather, it infects its victims with a supernatural substance, somewhere between a poison and a plague. Any time someone is injured by its natural attacks, he must attempt a Fortitude save (DC 10 +1/2 the agent’s HD + its Constitution modifier). If he succeeds, the injected substance does not take hold in his system, and he is immune to the agent’s pandemoniac corruption for 24 hours.

If the victim fails, a faint oil secreted by the agent of chaos works its way into his bloodstream. The victim appears perfectly normal and healthy for 3d6 days. Once that time expires, the victim suddenly grows deathly ill. He develops open lesions all over his body, which slowly leak a strange, dull gray fluid. His eyes glaze over with a green film, and he begins to cough up mucus tainted with blood and that same gray sludge. He suffers a penalty of 1d10+5 to all ability scores (roll separately for each), to a minimum of 1. At any point in the process, even before symptoms are visible, a remove disease spell destroys the substance in the bloodstream. Once symptoms are visible, a DC 25 Heal check can also save the victim. Because this requires various herbs and substances that are toxic in their own right, however, each Heal attempt (successful or not) requires that the victim make a Fortitude save or suffer 1 point of Constitution damage.

The victim dies 3d12 hours after symptoms first appear, unless he has been cured. If the victim was a spellcaster who drew on extraplanar sources for his magic (such as a cleric who called on a specific deity, or a wizard specialized in conjuration spells), the corpse immediately bursts open in a cloud of corruption and decay, and a new agent of chaos outsider of the same type and racial Hit Dice emerges.

Warpwave (Su)

A creature struck by any of the agent of chaos’s melee attacks must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the agent’s HD + its Constitution modifier) or be affected by a warpwave.

d20 Warpwave Effect

18 Target is turned to stone.
19 Target is affected by baleful polymorph (CL = agent’s CR).
20 Portions of target’s body burst with energy of a random type (choose between acid, cold, electricity, or fire), dealing 4d6 points of damage of the appropriate type to the target.

Blinding Beauty (Su)

This affects all humanoids within 30 feet of her. Those who look directly at her must succeed on a DC 23 Fortitude save or be blinded permanently. She can suppress or resume this ability as a free action. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Inspiration (Su)

She can choose an intelligent creature to inspire by giving that creature some token of her affection (typically a lock of hair). As long as the creature carries She’s token, it gains a +4 insight bonus on all Will saving throws, Craft checks, and Perform checks. A bard inspired by She in this way can use bardic performance for an additional 9 rounds per day. She retains a link to her token and its carrier as if she had cast a status spell on the carrier. She can end this effect at any time as a free action. She may only inspire one creature at a time in this manner.

Spellcasting

She casts spells as a 7th-level druid, but cannot swap out prepared spells to cast summon spells.

Stunning Glance (Su)

As a standard action, She can stun a creature within 30 feet with a look. The target must succeed on a DC 23 Fortitude save or be stunned for 2d4 rounds. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Unearthly Grace (Su)

She adds her Charisma modifier as a racial bonus on all her saving throws, and as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class.

Wild Empathy (Su)

This works like the druid’s wild empathy class feature, except She has a +6 racial bonus on the check. She’s effective druid level is equal to her HD for determining her total modifier to the check.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate aquatic
Organization solitary
Treasure standard (dagger, other treasure)
