As a full-round action, a sangoi can deliver its curse to an adjacent humanoid as a melee touch attack. If the target fails its save, the sangoi gains the benefit of aid (with a caster level equal to the target’s Hit Dice). A sangoi gains a +2 morale bonus on attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saving throws, and opposed skill checks against any creature affected by its curse. A creature that successfully saves can’t be affected by the same sangoi’s curse for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.
A sangoi can hear the beating hearts of living creatures nearby, granting it blindsense 30 feet and blindsight 5 feet. It can locate all creatures taking bleed damage within 30 feet as if it had blindsight. This ability does not reveal the location of creatures without hearts.
When a sangoi enters a blood rage, its claws and teeth elongate and sharpen, threatening a critical hit on a roll of 18–20. If a sangoi reduces a humanoid to –1 or fewer hit points with a critical hit from its claws or teeth, it can tear out the target’s heart and consume it as a free action (Fortitude DC 19 negates), killing the creature instantly. The sangoi gains 1d8 temporary hit points and a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength for 1 hour. When it kills a creature in this way, any humanoid within 30 feet who witnesses this attack must succeed at a DC 19 Will save or become shaken and sickened for 1d4 rounds (this is a mind-affecting fear effect). The save DCs are Charisma-based.
Sangois fade from view when in a creature’s peripheral vision. They gain concealment against creatures they flank. They can attempt a Bluff check to feint as a swift action, but only against a foe that can clearly see them.
Sunlight causes sangois to partially fade from view. Their bodies become translucent (20% miss chance), and they become fatigued and take a –10 penalty on Disguise checks as long as they remain in direct sunlight.
Environment any cold or temperate land
Organization solitary or pair
Treasure standard (dagger)
Sometimes mistaken for vampires, sangois are evil nocturnal fey that haunt towns and graveyards, feeding on blood and hunting by the sounds of victims’ hearts. They prefer humanoid blood but settle for animal blood when hungry.
Sangoi stand 4 feet tall and weigh 35 to 40 pounds.
