Astral Thrust (Su)

A yuki-onna is surprisingly adept at shoving creatures that displease her. Despite being incorporeal, the mythic yuki-onna can attempt bull rush combat maneuver checks against corporeal creatures.

Additionally, the mythic yuki-onna receives a +8 bonus to bull rush combat maneuver checks and never provokes an attack of opportunity while doing so.

Chilling Touch (Su)

A yuki-onna’s touch causes 4d6 cold damage.

Whenever a creature takes cold damage in this manner, it must make a DC 22 Fortitude save to avoid being staggered by the supernatural cold for 1 round. This duration stacks. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Fascinating Gaze (Su)

Fascinated for 1d4 rounds, 30 feet, Will DC 22 negates. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Icy Mirror (Su)

Creating a supernatural mirror from icy sheets, the mythic yuki-onna can force spells back at the original caster. As an immediate action, a mythic yuki-onna may expend one use of mythic power to turn a spell targeting it back on the original caster, as if the caster were the target instead of the yuki-onna.

The spell’s original caster may attempt a caster level check against the yuki-onna to prevent the spell from being turned. If the spell is prevented from being turned, it automatically overcomes the yuki-onna’s spell resistance.

Snow Dependency (Ex)

A yuki-onna is staggered if she is ever in an area without snow while her snowstorm aura is suppressed or otherwise not functioning.

Snowstorm (Su)

A yuki-onna is surrounded by whirling blasts of snow, even in areas that wouldn’t allow for such weather, that comprise a 200-foot-radius spread. Within this area, the snowfall and wind gusts cause a -4 penalty on Perception checks and ranged attacks. The wind itself blows in a clockwise rotation around the yuki-onna, and functions as severe wind. A yuki-onna is unaffected by snowstorms or blizzards of any kind. Any effect that causes these winds to drop below severe (such as control weather or control winds) cancels the snowstorm effect entirely.

This beautiful but sad-looking woman wears an ornate robe and is surrounded by a whirling mass of snow.

A yuki-onna is the restless spirit of a woman who froze to death in the snow and was never given a proper burial. She roams the wilderness, constantly searching for intelligent creatures to kill and always appearing surrounded by swirling mists of snow and ice. Eternally jaded by her unjust departure to the afterlife, a yuki-onna seeks to impose the same cruel fate upon those who still live, particularly men and those who sympathize or cooperate with them. Many foolish individuals are lured to their deaths by a yuki-onna’s unparalleled beauty, which remains even as the evil spirit steadily freezes and kills her victims with her powers over frost. A yuki-onna is 5-1/2 feet tall.
