Burlap Sack (Ex) A krampus normally carries a burlap sack into which it can stuff grappled opponents. This functions as a swallow whole attack (no damage, AC 13, 7 hp), except the sack is destroyed if its occupant escapes by cutting a hole in the sack. If, at any time, the krampus no longer carries a sack into which it has stuffed an opponent, the creature in the sack is no longer grappled, and can escape the sack as a move action.

Chain Armor (Ex) The chains that adorn a krampus grant it a +4 armor bonus, but are not treated as armor for the purpose of arcane spell failure, armor check penalties, maximum Dexterity, weight, or proficiency.

Child-Scent (Ex) A krampus gains the scent ability, but only with respect to humanoid children and immature animals, as per the child-scent witch‘s hex.

Cook People (Su) A krampus gains and can use the Cook People witch‘s hex, even if it doesn’t meet that hexes normal prerequisites.

Rattling Chains (Ex) As a standard action, a krampus can attempt to demoralize opponents by rattling the chains it wears as armor. This functions as the Dazzling Display feat, except it does not require the krampus to be wielding a weapon.

Monstrous mountain fey, krampuses are hairy, brutish creatures that spend much of the year skulking in shallow caves. Each year at the start of winter, they emerge to celebrate various krampus festivals, during which time they roam the alpine countryside, terrorizing the locals. A roaming krampus gang is likely to demand a tribute of alcohol under pain of death, or to seek out and abduct naughty children for later consumption.
