“Avowed reaver” is a template that can be applied to any humanoid or monstrous humanoid. The creature is transformed by high magic and raw elemental power. These magical powers fuse body and soul into a single being which becomes native to a particular elemental plane. While the creature is not necessarily compelled to serve the forces that changed them into an avowed reaver, most creatures that can wield such high magic typically require a geas or similar high price for bestowing such a powerful gift.
