Discoloring Touch (Su)

On a successful touch attack, a choxani feeds on the color of a living thing target, causing it to gain a negative level (DC 14 Will negates). This touch attack does not end the fascination caused by its hypnotic colors unless the target fails its save against its discoloring touch. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Hypnotic Colors (Su)

As a standard action, a choxani can swirl its colors to create a hypnotic pattern (DC 14) centered on itself, using its HD as its caster level. A creature that successfully saves is immune to that choxani’s hypnotic colors for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Pattern Reading (Su)

As a full-round action, a choxani can let its subconscious thoughts form patterns on its skin, reading the results as augury (chance of success 10% times its HD, maximum 90%). If a result would be ”nothing”— including a failed augury— it is gives a random result of weal, woe, or both. The choxani does not know if the augury succeeds.


Environment any (Plane of Faerie)
Organization solitary, pair, or convocation (3–6)
Treasure standard (longbow with 20 arrows, rapier, other treasure)

Also called “picture people,” choxani embody those aspects of nature that resemble other things, from a chameleon changing color to a cloud blown into the shape of a dog. Choxani see these moments of representation as proof of the plan underlying all reality, and honor them with religious fervor. They communicate primarily through hand gestures and their constantly changing markings, which can form text or images. When eating, the colors on their fingers or faces stretch out into funnels, sucking in the colors of other organisms and leaving them lifeless gray husks. A typical choxani is 7 feet tall and weighs 150 pounds.
