Ash Consumption (Su) When a creature within 30 feet takes fire damage, a pyric wraith regains a number of Hit Points equal to the damage the creature took, up to a maximum equal to the wraith’s CR per round.

Illuminated (Su) Light within 10 feet of a pyric wraith increases by two steps. Light for 10 more feet beyond that increases by one step. Magical darkness decreases this light only if from a source with a CR or level higher than the wraith’s CR.

Pyric Fire (Su) The fire damage of a pyric wraith burns body and spirit, ignoring fire resistance and dealing half damage even to creatures with fire immunity. A creature burning due to this fire can gain no bonuses to end that condition. A creature that dies due to pyric fire damage becomes a pyric revenant 1d4 hours later.

Pyric Ray (Su) A pyric wraith can launch a ray of pyric fire with a range increment of 30 feet and a maximum range of 150 feet.

Pyric Curse

Type curse; Save Fortitude DC 14
Effect A creature that fails the save gains the burning 2d4 condition. This flame is pyric fire (see special ability). While affected, the creature succeeds at saving throws against other pyric curses of the same or weaker potency.
Cure 1 save; successful saves against the burning condition are successful saves against the curse.


Environment any
Organization solitary or pair

Over centuries, pyric fire consumes a pyric revenant’s flesh, leaving behind an apparition of ash and embers. This pyric wraith is made of swirling cinders rippling around a heart of brighter flame. The smell of ash and smoke often precedes a pyric wraith.

A pyric wraith retains only a desire to burn living things and consume the energy released. These beings rarely make full use of their incorporeality. Overwhelming malice compels them to kill without stealth, inspiring horror as they do so. Further, pyric wraiths hate passing through the darkness within objects.
