Special Qualities possess computer


Possess Computer (Su)

As a full action that provokes attacks of opportunity, a lislaroth can convert its body and gear into digital code and merge with a computer to which it has access. This ability fails if the devil is encumbered.

While possessing a computer, the devil has total cover and is immune to any effect that requires it to have a body.

A lislaroth can operate a computer its possessing using its Knowledge (engineering) skill. The devil firsts attempts to disable and impersonate any artificial personality the system has. If the computer is destroyed, the possession ends unless the devil can use a reaction to flee to a connected system. A dismissal spell cast on the computer can force the lislaroth back to Hell, but if the spell would send the devil to a random plane, the devil is instead forced to end the possession. When the possession ends, the devil appears in an unoccupied space as close to the computer as possible.

Technomagical Susceptibility (Ex)

Any effect that works on a construct works on a lislaroth. An effect that works on a construct and an outsider has the worst possible effect.


Environment any (Hell)
Organization solitary, pair, or packet (3–6)
Treasure standard

This humanoid has pale skin and glowing red eyes, its body a hybrid of withered flesh and cybernetic parts.

Hacker devils, called lislaroth in Infernal, are Hell’s digital spies. Portions of their limbs are entirely mechanical, and even the classic diabolic horns are themselves made of metal spines and protrusions, shot through with wires and often many tiny blinking lights. They can interface with other machines and especially with linked computer networks and sentient artificial intelligences to gain access to sensitive data, which they use or trade to corrupt mortal souls. A hacker devil stands 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds.
