Revenant, Hellion

Hellion Revenant CR 2

This featureless humanoid form stands about five feet in height, its form wreathed in ethereally translucent shadowlike veils. When it moves, though the apparition’s legs seem to be walking, its feet never touch the ground beneath it and it exhibits an odd grace.

Before Combat When released from the ireful hellion’s lair where it was imprisoned, the hellion revenant immediately attempts to flee to the largest concentration of nearby living creatures by utilizing its greater lifesense ability.

During Combat To cause the most havoc among the living it encounters, the hellion revenant attempts to possess frequently used everyday objects using its inanimate possession special ability.

Constitution Drain (Su)

Creatures hit by a hellion revenant’s touch attack must succeed on a DC 16 Fortitude save or take 1 point of Constitution drain. For every successfully drained point of Constitution the hellion revenant gains 5 temporary hit points. The DC for this ability is Charisma-based.

Inanimate Possession (Su)

Once per day a hellion revenant can possess an inanimate object within 10 ft. as a full-round action.

Once an item is possessed it becomes a cursed item and radiates a 10 ft.-wide unnatural aura. An item remains cursed until the revenant chooses to leave it (requiring a full-round action), the item is completely destroyed, or the effect is removed with remove curse (DC 15). When the curse effect is removed, the hellion revenant assumes its incorporeal form, stunned for 1d4 rounds before trying to flee until it can find another item to possess.

A hellion revenant notices and locates living creatures within a 5-mile radius, just as if it possessed the blindsight ability.


Environment any (lair of an ireful hellion)
Organization pack 6-72
Treasure none

Ireful hellions have a supernatural ability to attract any recently departed soul unlucky enough to wander near its layer, luring them to their bound home. The hellion consumes and subsists off any remaining energies of these souls (increasing its own power) leaving behind only mindless wraiths called hellion revenants that join their master in a rage-filled existence.
