Bestiary

Locator Demon

This humanoid creature is lean, with a broad chest and muscular legs covered by leathery red skin. Its long clawed hands grasp the hilt of a serrated greatsword that buzzes with a perpetual high-pitched hum. Its horned head is dominated by large sensory organs: glaring amber eyes filled with animal cunning, broad ears pressed flat against its head, a gnarled muzzle, and a wide jaw that emits a faint cloud of ashen smoke with every breath. Behind the creature are two more almost identical in appearance, except they stand on all fours with arched backs, their swords sheathed, and their hind legs tensing.

  • Retrieval: A locator can use one of the following spells as an action at will: bypass barrier, consume mind, or locate. No two members of a pack have the same retrieval ability.
  • Pack Bond: Locator demons can communicate telepathically with their other two pack mates, provided they are within 200 yards. They use this ability to strategize and exchange information while hunting their target. Locators retain this ability while shapeshifted.
