Friday Creature Feature: Nautilus

Okay, so here's something a little different, a unique named spirit.  You could also call it a demon or even a god, if that sounds better.

NAUTILUS
Medium Outsider (Unique Spirit)
Level: Fighter 6, Wizard 12
HP: 74
Speed: fly 30 (perfect)
Armor Class: 19 (+5 natural +4 spirit)
Attack Bonus: +17 melee
Damage: varies
Special Qualities: Damage Reduction 20/magic, Horrific Appearance, Malevolence, Telekinesis, Manifestation, Rejuvenation

Environment: Otherworldly

In its unmasked form, this spirit appears as a series of strangely curved shapes, each melting and flowing into the next. It is called Nautilus because the effect on one who watches this process for very long is reminiscent of traveling through a spiral shell with many chambers. Nautilus's hosts take on the features of cephalopods, insects, and crustaceans.

Nautilus dwells in a far corner of the spirit world many veils beyond the one we know, and shares company only with its own mindless servants and emanations. Whether it was exiled from the company of spirits or left by choice is not known, but the fact remains that,  by any human standard, Nautilus is a raving mad creature of the Outer Darkness and cares for nothing but the silencing of all sentient thought.

Spell-like abilities:  At will: Hypnotic Pattern, Mirror Image. Once Per Day: Confusion, Scintillating Pattern.

  2. Gosh, that really stings, coming from someone who can't spell "retarded."
