Death Throes (Ex)

A khloris explodes in a white-hot chemical blast when it reaches 0 Hit Points, regardless of its remaining Resolve Points. Its body is obliterated, and all creatures within 10 feet of the khloris take 2d6 fire damage and catch on fire; a success on a DC 14 Reflex saving throw halves the damage and prevents catching on fire. Unattended flammable materials are set alight.

Defoliate (Su)

As a khloris makes a claw attack, it can spend 1 Resolve Point to wither plant life. On a successful attack, the khloris deals an additional 5d6 damage to a plant creature (DC 14 Fortitude halves); it automatically kills a nonliving plant. If the attack misses, the Resolve Point is wasted.

Fast Healing (Ex)

A khloris’ fast healing is suppressed for 1 round when it is dealt damage from a silver or good-aligned weapon or spell.

Incendiary Oil (Ex)

By spending 1 RP as a standard action, a khloris can spray combustible fluid in a 15-foot cone. This spray coats each square in the area of effect in slippery oil, increasing the DC of Acrobatics checks in coated squares by 5. Creatures in the cone are coated in oil unless they succeed at a DC 14 Reflex saving throw. A creature coated in oil is sickened and gains vulnerability to fire for 1 minute, and the DC to put out creatures and objects on fire that are coated with the oil increases by 5. An oilcoated creature or square can be washed clean with a gallon of liquid as a full-round action.

Unnerving Gaze (Ex)

A creature that succumbs to a khloris’ unnerving gaze feels phantasmal vines twining around their limbs and digging into their flesh. Affected creatures are entangled for one round.


Environment any (The Shadow plane)
Organization solitary, pair, or inferno (3-8)

Khloris kytons work fanatically in secret to infect, blight, and burn the forests there. While their unstable chemical cores prevent them from regenerating as other kytons do, their detonation also ensures that every death spreads fire and destruction (in addition to destroying evidence of kyton activity). A khloris is 6 feet tall and weighs 135 pounds.
