Ei’risai, Greater (3pp)

The enormous abomination before you is humanoid in only the loosest sense of the word. It appears as a conglomeration of various creatures, stuck on a broad-shouldered, powerful frame. Its eyes are wild and angry as the abomination glares balefully at the world around.

Organization solitary, pair, cluster (3–5), mob (6–10)
Treasure standard

By the time it achieves greater status, an ei’risai has developed substantially in terms of intellect and identity. Greater ei’risai are still driven by the race’s biological imperatives, but they are capable of forming their own goals and desires as well. Greater ei’risai often seek to spread chaos, not merely out of a lust for violence, but as a means of amassing personal power or wealth. Of course, they do precious little with these once they have them, and often abandon their gains as soon as they grow bored, but their acquisitive nature seems ingrained. Greater ei’risai are willing to deal or bargain with other creatures, if they believe doing so will advance their own goals, and chaos in general, in the long run.While they are far smarter than once they were, greater ei’risai still possess only average intelligence, and they often overestimate their own cleverness.
