SQ demon shaping


Demon Shaping (Su)

Three times per day, the fleshwarper hezrou can spend a minute to transform nearby dretches into other lesser demons. The hezrou can transform one dretch for every Hit Die possessed. It can then reshape these dretches into a number of Hit Dice worth of lesser demons equal to the number of dretches affected. Dretches to be reshaped must be within 50 feet of the hezrou, becoming stationary and unable to move once the shaping begins. After a minute passes, the dretches reform into the shape of a new lesser demon (with a CR no higher than the fleshwarper hezrou s). Demons created in this manner are not automatically subservient to the fleshwarper hezrou.

Nausea (Ex)

The noxious vapors and foul fluids that constantly weep and seethe from the fleshwarper hezrou’s body are particularly heinous to those the creature grapples. Each round a creature grappled by the outsider must make a DC 27 Fortitude save or become nauseated. A creature nauseated in this manner remains nauseated until he succeeds on a Fortitude save, or until a minute has passed during which he is not grappled by the hezrou, whichever condition comes first. The save DC is Constitution-based.


Environment any swamp (Abyss)
Organization solitary or gang (2 4 lesser demons)
Treasure standard

Through accident more than effort, some hezrou gain control over the mutating effects of their presence over living creatures. These hezrou claim to be the originators of the foul art of fleshwarping having imparted the dark secrets to the drow as part of their original demonic pacts. If this claim is valid, then the fleshwarping hezrou completely waste their talents and potential. Instead of raising armies or remaking demonkind over in their image, the majority simply use their abilities to be better bullies. They might create a small gang of tortured minions or claim a remote region of the Abyss as territory. Beyond that, they warp and tear the forms of creatures around them for personal amusement and little real purpose. Only when summoners bind the demons to a task are their abilities pushed toward creative limits.
