Monk Rework Survey

Home > Bestiary > Fey > Leanan Family >

A spirit that disguises itself as a beautiful woman. It favors strong-willed humans, devouring their souls for sustenance. As long as its victim’s will is strong this spirit will attack both saints and villains indiscriminately. Apparently virtuous and evil emotions are equally nutritious when converted to energy. The more souls Ainsel consumes, the more powerful the spirit grows.

SQ Liquid Form


Fiery Storm Dome (Su)

All creatures within a 30-foot radius from ainsel must make a DC 29 Will save or have their fire, ice, lightning, and wind resistance dropped by 15 for 1d6 rounds. Whether or not the save is successful, that creature cannot be affected again by the same ainsel’s fiery storm aqua dome ability for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Liquid Form (Su)

An ainsel is always in liquid form. She gains immunity to critical hits, poison, and sneak attacks. She also has DR/15 magic. She retains her own base speed, and her swim speed doubles to 120 feet.

Malediction (Su)

An ainsel can release malevolence from within draining the health of all nearby enemies within a 30-ft.-radius spread. An ainsel deals 12d6 points of shadow damage and is healed by half of the total damage done unless those in the area must make a Fortitude save (DC 25) to negate the heal affect and take half damage. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 9th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 33).

Mesmerizing Voice (Su)

Ainsel sings a mesmerizing song that charms all those nearby her. Creatures within 30 feet of ainsel must make a Will save (DC 20) or be charmed for 1 minute. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Unearthly Grace (Su)

An ainsel adds her Charisma modifier as a racial bonus on all her saving throws and as a deflection bonus to her AC.
