SPECIAL ABILITIES

Faded (Su)

In bright light, a bushyasta appears translucent.

The div gains partial concealment (20% miss chance) but still takes penalties due to its light sensitivity.

Staggering Touch (Su)

A bushyasta’s claws inflict wracking pains. In addition to their normal lethal damage, her claws deal 1d6 points of nonlethal damage. A creature that takes nonlethal damage from this attack must succeed at a DC 18 Fortitude save or be staggered for 1 round. This duration stacks with multiple hits and multiple failed saving throws. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Withering Effort (Su)

Once per day as a standard action, a bushyasta can create a surge of negative energy that weakens nearby creatures.

Creatures within 30 feet of a bushyasta must succeed at a DC 18 Fortitude save or become fatigued. If a creature in this area that was already fatigued fails this saving throw, it becomes exhausted instead. The fatigued (or exhausted) condition persists as long as the creature is active, but it can remove the fatigued (or exhausted) condition if it does nothing but rest for 10 minutes. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Preying upon the fruitful and industrious, bushyastas are agents of sloth and laziness. They promote shiftless behavior and try to lull people to sleep so that they can’t achieve their goals. Keeping mortals from productive toil is a bushyasta’s driving purpose.

Bushyastas often haunt construction sites, especially those of places of civil or religious importance, and particularly savor disrupting creations that would be a focus of pride and glory for a community.

All divs have some manner of esoteric flaw in their behavior; bushyastas’ is hate for and avoidance of perfumed odors. These fiends loathe anyone wearing perfume or carrying aromatic flowers. Bushyastas’ abhorrence of fragrant scents led to a custom of perfuming the dead in order to keep these divs away from funeral services.

Kyton, Oitos

The golden bones of this magnificent skeleton are clad in monstrous face-skins sewn into a cape and skirt adorned with gold pendants.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dark Traveler (Ex)

When an oitos uses plane shift to travel to the Shadow Plane or an evil-aligned plane, it arrives at its intended destination with complete accuracy. When an oitos uses shadow walk, it moves at a rate of 100 miles per hour.

Golden Bones (Su)

On a critical hit, an oitos attempts to bless the damaged creature with inner beauty. If the target fails at a DC 21 Fortitude save, the oitos turns the creature’s bones into magical, radiant gold. The target is immediately and permanently affected as per the spell faerie fire, and its Constitution is reduced by 4.

At the start of every round this effect persists, the victim must succeed at a DC 21 Fortitude save or its eyes are burned out from the inside, resulting in permanent blindness. This is a curse effect; the effects do not stack. The cleaned bones of a Medium creature affected by this ability are worth 1,000 gp. This value doubles for each size category an affected creature is larger than Medium, and it is halved for each size category a creature is smaller than Medium. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Lash (Su)

An oitos can lash at foes with razor-sharp, animated strips of leather and silk. This is a primary natural attack that deals slashing damage.

Unnerving Gaze (Ex)

A creature that succumbs to an oitos’s unnerving gaze becomes nauseated for 1 round. This is a mind-affecting fear effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Shadow Plane)
Organization solitary, pair, or delegation (1 plus 1d6 kytons)
Treasure triple

What is perfection without splendor? Oitos kytons know there is much more to seduction than audacities of the flesh. Oitoses tempt souls to drift willingly into their clutches.

They have more discerning tastes than many of their brethren, though, seeking specific targets, whether those with a certain “flavor” of mortal experience or outsiders of particular magnificence. Tearing away their victims’ tawdry flesh, they exalt in the clean grandeur of bone gilded with precious metals. They present themselves as living treasures—beings capable of fulfilling the promise of any reward and embodiments of glories to come.
