This sinister figure is completely encased in black, devil-themed armor, with only its glowing eyes visible beneath its helm.
|Human Graveknight Fighter 5/Hell Knight 10 CR 16
AC 28, touch 11, flat-footed 27 (+13 armor, +1 Dex, +4 natural)
Speed 30 ft.
At will—detect chaos

Any weapon he wields deals an additional +3d6 points of damage on a successful hit.
Three times per day, he may unleash a 30-foot cone of destructive force. This blast deals 10d6 points of fire damage (Reflex DC 22 half).
Once per hour, he can summon a skeletal horse similar to a phantom steed (CL 15th). This mount is more real than a typical phantom steed, and can carry one additional rider. If the mount is destroyed, it can be summoned again with full hit points 1 hour later.
One day after he is destroyed, his armor begins to rebuild his body. This process takes 1d10 days—if the body is destroyed before that time passes, the armor merely starts the process anew. After this time has elapsed, he wakens fully healed.
He constantly exudes an aura of intense evil and negative energy in a 30-foot radius. This aura functions as desecrate, which the graveknight constantly gains the benefits of (these benefits are included in the stats above). In addition, this miasma of fell energies hinders the channeling of positive energy. Any creature that attempts to use positive energy in this area—such as through a cleric’s channel energy ability, a paladin’s lay on hands, or any spell with the healing descriptor—must make a DC 25 caster level check or the attempt to use positive energy fails.
As a standard action, he can attempt to bend any undead creature within 50 feet to its will. The targeted undead must make a DC 22 Will save or fall under the graveknight’s control. This control is permanent for unintelligent undead. An undead with an Intelligence score is allowed an additional save every day to break free from his control. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by his undead mastery for 24 hours. He can control up to 75 Hit Dice worth of undead creatures at a time. If he exceeds this number, he loses control over some of his minions, as per the spell animate dead.
