A high-class demon that feeds on the purest of human souls. It can manipulate the power of darkness, and it is talented at bewitching the minds of humans. The demon finds glee in seeing the pure at heart fall to despair, and will go to great lengths to ensure that its prey will suffer. It is known to root doubt into others so that a party would fight amongst themselves, but if one holds a strong heart, and faces the demon while placing trust in his allies, then the chance for victory will surely come.

SQ Whip Mastery
Concentrating Magical Power (Ex)
2/day, an erigoss can cast two spells using one standard action. Both of the spells must have the same standard action casting time. The demon can make any decisions concerning the spells independently of each other.
If an erigoss strikes a Medium or smaller foe with its whip, the erigoss can immediately attempt a grapple check without provoking an attack of opportunity. If the erigoss wins the check, it draws the foe into an adjacent square. The foe gains the grappled condition, but the erigoss does not.
Flaming Body (Su)
An erigoss’s body is covered in dancing flames. Anyone striking an erigoss with a natural weapon or unarmed strike takes 1d6 points of fire damage. A creature that grapples an erigoss or is grappled by one takes 5d6 points of fire damage each round the grapple persists.
