SPECIAL ABILITIES

Child’s Needs (Su)

An infantis is all that remains of the dying consciousness of a small child. The Infantis suffers a -1 morale penalty on attack rolls, skill checks and saving throws when within 30 ft. of a visible crib, toy, child-sized clothing or a nursing or pregnant woman.

Shriek of Hunger (Su)

A target who is damaged by an infantis’ shriek ranged attack must succeed at a DC 13 Will save or become fatigued. This fatigue cannot be removed by any means until the target eats at least a day’s worth of rations. If the target is already fatigued, they become exhausted instead. Exhausted targets fall unconscious for 2d6 hours, or until roused.

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary or murder (groups of 1d6+3)
Treasure incidental

Infantis are exceptionally horrid undead that arise from the dying, panicked thoughts of the stillborn and infants killed by neglect or exposure. They lack intellect, operating purely on a panicked, fearful instinct like an abused animal.

The creatures attack small animals and children caught outside in the frightful dark; they only challenge larger and more dangerous prey in flocks, or if commanded by a powerful and cruel master.

Infantis are dead and decaying carrion birds with the putrefying skull of a newborn where a true avian’s head should be. Their cries are the desperate howls of a starving baby.
