Kyton Demagogue

This impeccably formed man has ice-blue skin. Bleeding icicles pierce his lips and form a jagged cloak around his waist and legs.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Bloody Icicles (Su)

A kyton demagogue can use the icicles embedded in his flesh as melee or thrown ranged weapons. He can retrieve up to four of these icicles per round as a swift action. When wielded as a melee weapon, an icicle is considered a +5 wounding rapier. When wielded as thrown ranged weapons, the icicles are considered +3 daggers.

Icicles retrieved from his flesh are immediately replaced, and he has hundreds of icicles embedded in his flesh that he can use for this purpose.

Cloak of Ice (Su)

A kyton demagogue is immune to cold damage as well as spells with the cold descriptor, and he always treats any difficult terrain that results from magical or mundane ice as normal terrain. He gains a profane bonus to his Armor Class equal to his Intelligence bonus.

Freezing Blast (Su)

A kyton demagogue can harness the power of absolute zero and release it in a burst around him with but a thought.

A kyton demagogue can use this ability five times per day as a standard action that doesn’t provoke attacks of opportunity. When he does, creatures within 30 feet of him take 6d6 points of cold damage and 6d6 points of piercing damage that counts as evil and magic for the purpose of bypassing damage reduction. A successful DC 29 Fortitude saving throw halves both the cold and piercing damage. Additionally, creatures that fail this save must immediately attempt a DC 29 Will save. Failing this second save means a creature has been frozen solid and has become a supernaturally frozen, mindless, inert statue and is considered petrified, per flesh to stone (if the creature isn’t made of flesh, this secondary ability has no effect). The creature can’t be turned back to flesh by casting stone to flesh, but it can be restored via break enchantment. If the creature is not restored after a number of hours equal to the creature’s Hit Dice, the creature dies and remains a perpetually frozen statue; it can’t be returned to life except by the express intervention of a deity. The save DCs are Constitution-based.

Icy Logic (Su)

A kyton demagogue has absolute, logical control over the essence of cold. The save DCs for his spell-like abilities are based on his Intelligence rather than his Charisma.

Additionally, at will, he can dispel any ongoing effect with the cold descriptor. This functions as greater dispel magic, although a kyton demagogue automatically succeeds at any required dispel checks.

Unnerving Gaze (Ex)

A creature that succumbs to a kyton demagogue’s unnerving gaze becomes stunned for 1d4 rounds as it becomes convinced that the demagogue’s bloody icicles are working their way through its body, slowly transforming it into a frozen, blood-soaked exhibit in a kyton demagogue’s menagerie.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Plane of Shadow)
Organization solitary (unique)
Treasure triple

The kyton demagogue known as the White Death is an ancient, mysterious, and aloof figure who dwells on the Plane of Shadow and is cloaked in the flesh-piercing bloody icicles, some of which stitch his mouth closed.

For millennia he has lurked in his realm of Frozen Tears, located atop a thick sheet of shadowy ice over a frigid sea.
