SPECIAL ABILITIES

Paralyzing Gaze (Su)

As a standard action, a yeux may target up to four creatures within 30 feet that it can see, causing them to become paralyzed for 1 minute (DC 13 Will negates).

Paralyzed creatures can attempt a new save each round at the end of their turn to end this paralysis, with a +2 circumstance bonus on the save if they no longer have line of sight to the yeux. This is a mind-affecting paralysis effect, but it can affect mindless living creatures.

Rebuking Glare (Su)

When a creature the yeux can see attacks the yeux, it can focus its glare upon that creature as an immediate action, stunning its attacker for 1 round (DC 13 Will negates) before it is able to complete its attack.

This is a mind-affecting effect, and it has no effect on creatures unable to see the yeux.

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary or pair

Yeuxs live in small clans, usually no more than a dozen individuals. They are relentless hunters, either in small parties of their own kind, or leading packs of hunting beasts and enslaved humanoids.

While they can be territorial and secretive, they are also notorious as marauders, slavers, and ruthless traders. Near large settlements, they are active in black markets, sometimes forming power blocs within organized crime. They sometimes inhabit valuable ruins, or build secret hideouts in humanoid cities, from which to exert control over their surroundings. Their clans often rule sparsely populated lands as warlords. Yeuxs are always interested in acquiring magic, technology, and wealth that grant them ever greater power.

The most dominant yeux in a group is an aggressive female, who reproduces with a chosen mate. Young yeuxs are male, becoming female through the passage of time and positions of dominance within the group. When their numbers become too numerous, they spread out to conquer new lands, or they engage in a spirited contest for dominance and survival to cull the weak from among them. The death of a matriarch triggers males to mature into females, replacing the previous matriarch and often causing the clan to spawn several new, independent groups.

Yeuxs stand between 6 and 7 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds.
