Cie'th SacrificeStanding against the blackness of the nightscape is a broad, vaguely humanoid figure, topheavy and coated in smooth, glassy crystal as pale as moonlight. It creeps forward with a steady, graceful step unlike that of others of its kind, silent as death and intent on delivering it.– Manly Man

Anathema (Su)

The sacrifice, as a standard action, releases a stream of black, vile mist that homes in and engulfs a single target within 60 ft., using debilitating and antimagic energies to cripple a foe. The target is subjected to a targeted greater dispel effect (CL 17 in this case), and given a menagerie of status effects. The target has to make a DC 26 saving throw each to avoid the Sap (Fort), Slow (Will)  and Imperil (Will) status. Another DC 26 Will save must be made or imposes a -4 penalty on all saving throws against spells and spell-like abilities. In addition, it also forces the target to treat their caster level as four levels lower for determining the effects of any and all spells and spell-like abilities they use. These effects all last for 1d6 rounds. The sacrifice must wait 1d4 rounds before using this ability again. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 9th-level spell (Knowledge: Local DC 33).

Great Claw (Ex)

The jagged crystals and heavy plates that make up the oversized claw of a sacrifice let them make slam attacks as a creature two size categories larger.

Mirrorskin (Ex)

All hostile spells and spell-like abilities that affect a sacrifice of 3rd-level or lower are automatically reflected back at the caster as though countered by an unbeatable Reflect effect. Any other hostile spells or spell-like abilities that fail to penetrate the sacrifice’s spell resistance have a 50% chance of reflecting back at the caster; those that are not reflected are simply nullified.

Sharp Claw (Ex)

The points, edges, and grooves on a sacrifice’s arm are able to easily rend flesh, letting them do either bludgeoning and piercing or bludgeoning and slashing damage with their slam attack.

Organization solitary, pair, trio
Treasure none
The curious and enigmatic sacrifice is an unusual beast, even by Cie’th standards; many believe that they were formed by fal’Cie who make their home on the moon. Indeed, sacrifices seem to harbor a strange longing for the moon, and venture into the open only at night to bask in its pale luminescence when they are not attempting to kill something. In combat, they begin by using their anathema ability and follow up with aera and aeroga to take out groups of enemies or their repertoire of aero spells for single targets. Especially tough or troublesome enemies are targeted by death, usually only after having been engaged for three rounds or so, although they have been known to kick off the fight with death if they see an opponent who might outclass them.
Sacrifices are about 11 feet tall and weigh 1,200 pounds.
