Kytons are humanlike
devils, wrapped in chains instead of clothing. A chain devil is 6 feet tall
and weighs about 300 pounds, chains included.
Chain devils speak Infernal
A cdevil attacks by flailing
away with the spiked chains that serve as its clothing, armor, and weapons.
A chain devil's natural
weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as evil-aligned and
lawful-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Dancing Chains (Su):
A chain devil's most awesome attack is its ability to control up to four
chains within 20 feet as a standard action, making the chains dance or move
as it wishes. In addition, a chain devil can increase these chains' length
by up to 15 feet and cause them to sprout razor-edged barbs. These chains
attack as effectively as the devil itself. If a chain is in another creature's
possession, the creature can attempt a DC 15 Will save to break the chain
devil's power over that chain. If the save is successful, the kyton cannot
attempt to control that particular chain again for 24 hours or until the chain
leaves the creature's possession. The save DC is Charisma-based.
Unnerving Gaze (Su):
Range 30 ft., Will DC 15 negates. A chain devil can make its face resemble
one of an opponent's departed loved ones or bitter enemies. Those who fail
their saves take a -2 penalty on attack rolls for 1d3 rounds. The save DC
Chain devils take normal damage from silvered weapons, good-aligned weapons,
and spells or effects with the good descriptor. A chain devil that loses a
piece of its body regrows it in 2d6x10 minutes. Holding the severed member
against the stump enables it to reattach instantly.
Skills: Chain devils have a +8 racial bonus on Craft checks involving metalwork.
