Variant Bodak

The flesh of this emaciated creature appears charred or dried, and its empty eye sockets seep trails of smoke.

Death Gaze (Su)

1d4 negative levels, 30 feet; Fortitude DC 18 negates. The save DC is Charisma-based. A humanoid slain by a bodak’s death gaze rises as a bodak 24 hours later. This is a death effect.

Vulnerability to Sunlight (Ex)

Bodaks loathe sunlight, for its merest touch burns their impure flesh. Each round of exposure to direct sunlight deals 2d6 points of damage to a bodak.

Base Creature


More intelligent than others of his kind (Int 12), it is the unusual henchman of an efreeti, and is the captain of his mamluk slaves. He is careful to not use his death gaze against his allies, but will tear back the veil as a free action to use it if alone or hard pressed. It bears immunity to fire as a result of several wishes granted by his efreeti master. The bodak is completely loyal to his master, and as long as he exists, his azer inferiors won’t think of surrendering.
