Havriveen

Havriveen CR 12

A massive serpentine creature crawls into sight with a stealth and speed that belie its size. This beast superficially resembles a wingless dragon, but has six glowing orbs for eyes, a bifurcated lower jaw, and large hexagonal, pearl-colored scales separated by the pale blue glow of aetherite influence. The dreamscape around it shifts and takes on an ominous cast.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dream Passage (Su)

A havriveen can physically enter dreamscapes in the Dimension of Dreams and dwell within those dreams without disorientation or other debilitating effect. The havriveen can also attempt impossible feats while in a dreamscape while in its physical body.

Despairing Presence (Su)

A havriveen is surrounded by an aura that corrupts the dreamscape whenever it is agitated or angered.

Activating this ability is a free action that is usually part of an attack or charge. Opponents within range who witness the action must succeed at a DC 19 Will save or be shaken while within the dreamscape. Even creatures physically present with no dreamed equipment can be affected by this ability, as the environment of the dreamscape hinders their actions in some way.

This is a mind-affecting effect.

Fray Crosser (Su)

A havriveen can cross between the Dimension of Dreams and the Material Plane when within a fray by concentrating for 1 minute.

They do so only in emergencies, for while they are physically powerful, they feel uncomfortable in the limitations of the Material Plane where many of their abilities have limited use.

Immunity to Age (Ex)

A havriveen is a timeless being; it doesn’t age, will never die of old age, and is immune to any effect that would cause it to age or grow younger.

Lucid Consumption (Su)

Any creature whose lucid body is killed in a dreamscape by a havriveen gains 2 permanent negative levels, as if going through as strenuous an ordeal as being brought back to life by a raise dead spell.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Dimension of Dreams)
Organization solitary

Havriveen are apex predators, stalking the wilds of the planet’s shared dreamscape for prey to terrorize and consume.

They frequently lurk near frays, waiting for native life and sentient creatures to dream their way into the havriveen’s clutches. Havriveen are also known as dreamdrakes, a nickname derived from a loose translation given upon first contact with the native penthe that shared their world.

Havriveen are more than just mindless predators. These ageless, intelligent creatures exhibit potent psychic abilities and intuitive control over dreamscapes. The penthe both fear and revere these creatures, holding them up as totemic symbols of power and creation within their culture, and offering them tribute when entering their domain.

Havriveen have dominated their isolated pocket of the Dimension of Dreams for all of recorded history. Their only natural enemies are night hags, who the havriveen aggressively destroy or drive away when encountered. Few of the soul-snatching hags are brave or ambitious enough to tread upon the dreamscape even if they discover the region’s obfuscated location.
