In front of you is a young woman with black hair, grey skin and a fanged gas mask. She is standing over the corpse of the mayor, and suddenly becomes the mayor.
The result of a terrible cooperation between the dreaded Dr. Ninh and the shadowy organization of BNC. The Chiyokoid is a mutant thin one created with the DNA of a particularly powerful individual and further augmented by technology. These creatures resemble their genetic parent, a young woman of 5'8 of height and of a 100 and some pounds in weight. They tend to have messy black hairs, styled to their pleasing as well as bright red eyes. The Chiyokoid are obedient to their masters, but show a sociopathic and sadistic personality. They each possess a fanged gas mask, with tubes running from alongside and in their neck and clavicle. The mask is an essential part of their biology, as it feeds them and grants them dangerous medicine to make them heal at incredible speed.
The Chiyokoids make perfect reconnaissance, assassination and infiltration units thanks to their DNA-Duplicator, which allow them to take the appearance of any creature they kill. A Chiyokoid has a short lifespan of a few years, but seem to believe they will be reincarnated into another Chiyokoid after death. According to rumors, some Chiyokoids are capable of recognizing adventurers that killed them before, lending credence to the hypothesis.
A Chiyokoid's combat behavior depends if it itself is taken by surprise or if it ambushes a foe. A Chyokoid will typically disable the strongest looking opponent with her mind bleed before tearing down support with their claws in melee. They prefer solo confrontation or surprise attack over rushing headlong into action. They will use their incredible disguise abilities to get close to their target, or escape a losing engagement. They are not afraid of fighting to the death.
DNA-Duplicator (Su): A Chiyokoid can use the assume appearance spell as a supernatural ability at-will. Doing so conceal her life-support mask, but does not otherwise change the clothes and gears worn by a Chiyokoid.
Euphoric Death Throes (Ex): When a chiyokoid dies, its body erupts into a euphoric toxic vapor as an inhaled poison in a 20-foot spread which lasts for 10 minutes before dispersing. The vapors provide 20% concealment and creatures exposed to it must make a Fortitude save (DC 22) or suffer 1d8 Charisma damage (primary and secondary). A creature who fail it Fortitude save is also overcome by euphoric physical and psychological sensation, which behave as the hideous laughter spell, this lasts for as long as the creature stays in the cloud and 1 round thereafter. The creature who succeeds on it saves against the poisonous vapors must make a new save every round it stays in the cloud, once it fails it save once it is immune to the effect of this particular cloud.
Life-Support Mask (Ex): A Chiyokoid has a gas mask permanently grafted on their face, this mask supply them with oxygen, bland food paste, water and protect them for harmful gasses (such as stinking cloud cloudkill). The mask also allows them to modulate their voices to sounds like any other creature they heard already. The mask also inject the Chiyokoid with medicine, granting them fast healing 3 and removing any poison as per neutralize poison 1 round after they are poisoned.
The mask is grafted onto a Chiyokoid's face and cannot be removed unless the Chiyokoid is helpless. If the mask is forcibly removed from a helpless or unconscious Chiyokoid, she will start choking and die within 1 minute. A Chiyokoid's life-support mask only function for the Chiyokoid it was built for, any creature who attempts to use it will expose itself to the euphoric toxin as per Euphoric Death Throes.
Mind Bleed (Su): A Chiyokoid can channel a psychic attack, causing intense pain and even death. As a standard action, a Chiyokoid can stare at a target within 120 feet, that creature immediately take 11d6 damages and become dazed for 1 round. A Will save DC 21 is allowed to halves the damage and negate the dazing. If the Chiyokoid kill a creature with Mind Bleed it head violently explodes. Upon using Mind Bleed, the Chiyokoid must wait 1d4 rounds before using it again.
Rend (Ex): If a chiyokoid hits with both claw attacks, it latches onto the opponent’s body and tears the flesh. This attack automatically deals an additional 2d6+16 points of damage.
Take a Breather (Ex): Once every 5 rounds, a Chiyokoid may take a sudden intake of powerful medicine from her life-support mask as a swift action. She immediately heals 5d8+11 hit points and is cured of any status condition as per the heal spell.
