The woman’s armor precisely follows the curves of her voluptuous body. Only the arms, ending in three-foot long razor blades, mar her otherworldly beauty.

All critical threats within 30 feet of a lejnth gain a +4 bonus to the confirmation roll. A successful critical hit within this aura inflicts maximum damage. This ability grants the lejnth Critical Focus as a bonus feat but does not affect attacks made against lejnth.
Three times per day, a lejnth can blast pieces of its armor at foes in a rain of razor-sharp steel. The blade shower strikes all creatures in a 30-foot cone and deals 6d6 points of piercing and slashing damage. A DC 20 Reflex save halves the damage. Any armor lost in the shower regrows instantly. The save DC is Constitution based.
Environment any (evil-aligned planes)
Organization solitary, pair, or platoon (4-8)
Often presumed to rank among Hell’s legions, and hence also known as “war devils,” lejnth are not natives of the Infernal realm. The lejnth association with war and battle, and a bloodlust that possesses almost no bounds, has garnered them a reputation as devils. However, lejnth are independent actors, unconcerned with the contests between the celestial and hellish realms. (However, their devilish traits suggest they might trace their ancestry back to creatures originally spawned in hell.) They appear at the side of gods of war as often as they serve some hellish lord bent on conquest. Even good-aligned deities, in their darker aspects of the battlefield, employ the lejnth as executors of their divine will.
All lejnth appear as females covered in steel armor and wielding dual swords. Closer inspection reveals both armor and swords are part of the lejnth’s body. Preternaturally sharp swords form the lower half of each arm. Their armor bristles with razor edges and spikes.
Lejnth stand a little under 6 feet tall and weigh about 500 pounds.
