Scrimshaw Magic (Sp, Su)

When a kikituk is created, its creator inscribes three spells—ones that require no costly material components—as scrimshaw designs. One of these spells must be 2nd level or lower, and the other two must be 4th level or lower. The kikituk can use these spells as spell-like abilities (CL 12th) at will (its Quicken Spell-like Ability feat applies to the spell that’s 2nd-level or lower). Erase removes one spell from a kikituk’s scrimshaw unless it succeeds at a Fortitude save against the spell. If a kikituk’s scrimshaw is removed in this manner, it loses access to that spell as a spell-like ability.

If all three spells are removed, it runs amok, slaughtering the nearest living creatures with reckless abandon—even its creator. As long as it has at least one scrimshaw spell in place, a kikituk gains a profane bonus to AC and on all saving throws equal to its Charisma modifier (+4 for the typical kikituk).

Shearing Jaws (Ex)

A kikituk applies double its Strength modifier to its damage with a successful bite attack.


Environment any
Organization solitary
Treasure none
