Addiction (Ex)

When a zohanil damages a creature with its talons, it injects the target with a severely addictive fluid that blurs vision and deadens reflexes. A creature can resist the effects of this injected toxin with a successful DC 22 Fortitude save. On a failed save, the victim takes a –2 penalty to all Wisdom– and Dexteritybased checks for 1 hour. After this hour passes, the penalty fades but the victim suffers the effects of withdrawal, taking a –2 penalty to Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, and Wisdom. These ability score penalties are negated on any round the victim takes the Wisdom– and Dexterity-based check penalty from further addiction attacks from the zohanil, but are otherwise permanent (as per a severe addiction). This is a disease effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Look of Fear (Su)

A creature affected by a zohanil’s gaze is panicked for 1 round and shaken for 1d4 rounds thereafter. A creature that successfully saves is instead shaken for 1 round.


Environment any (Ethereal Plane)
Organization solitary, pair, or gang (3–12)
Treasure standard

Zohanils delight in haunting those who fear needles and invasive medical procedures. They also enjoy sowing addiction in hopes of heightening despair. A zohanil stands over 6 feet tall and weighs roughly 200 pounds.
