Demon, Geruzou (Slime Demon; 3pp)

This humanoid appears to stand nearly 4 feet tall and has a horse-like head with downward-curving horns jutting from its head. Its mouth is filled with long, sharp teeth and its hands and feet end in sharpened claws. A pair of large, membranous wings jut from its back and its flesh is sickly gray and appears to be covered with a thick layer of slimy mucus.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Slime Armor (Ex)

The slime excreted by a geruzou grants it a +4 deflection bonus to AC. This bonus is already included in the statistics block.

Spit Slime (Ex)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, a geruzou can spit a stream of slimy goo in a 20-foot line (no range increment). This requires a successful ranged touch attack. A creature hit is slowed (as the slow spell, caster level 6th) for 6 rounds if it fails a DC 14 Fortitude save. The save DC is Constitution-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary
Treasure none

Geruzou are sometimes called slime demons because their leathery skin constantly drips and oozes thick, jelly-like mucus. Like their brethren, they are fierce combatants and are often employed as hunters and trackers by greater demons.

The typical geruzou stands nearly 4 feet tall and weighs about 140 pounds.
