"What is this horrible and perverted sea midget?!"
The dodoguaan is originally thought to be the result of a curse placed on a perverted man who peeped on a Goddess bathing, cursing him into a wretched form. A dodoguaan stand about 4 feet tall and weight around 100 pounds, they are completely devoid of hair, have two large orb-like eyes that never look in the same placed, a large mouth with useless teeth that constantly drool and no nose or neck.
Despite their obsessions with sex, dodoguaans reproduce asexually and each year a single dodoguaan divide into two with the second being only slightly different. They quickly form colonies, being bottom feeders and opportunistic carnivore they will eventually overeat and cause various ecological disaster. That said they will often accompany large a more vicious sea creatures in their raid, feeding on what remain on those who survived the initial rampage. They usually fight with poorly made hide armor and broken pieces of corals or discarded drowned tree branches as club.
If a dodoguaan take a creature alive, it will typically kill and eat it at it nearest convenience. If the creature is a beautiful humanoid they will usually stave off death by fascinating them, before starving to death since they don't feed captives. If a dodoguaan make it to 100 years it become large and start using a greatclub instead. A Dodoguaan may become a much eviler and ruthless Awakened if freed from it curse.
Dodoguaan speak and understand common and aquan.
If they can overwhelm with raw numbers they will, otherwise they will spit their mucus and make an exit. If forced to fight to the death they will usetheir mucus then flail with their club.
Deific Curse (Ex): All dodoguaans are under the curse of a greater deity, this make them unable to change or mask their form at all. However it also make them immune to polymorph and form-changing effect as well as other curses. If a dodoguaan attempt any kind of sexual intercourse it is struck by a bolt of lightning as per the call lightning spell with a caster level of 34th. This bolt of lightning do not affect any other creature.
Glob of Mucus (Ex): A dodoguaan may project a large glob of mucus from it mouth, behaving as the blinding spittleSpC spell. Once used it cannot be used again for 5 rounds.
Perverted (Ex): All dodoguaan share the same obsession with sexuality, beauty and ladies. They take a -2 penalty to attack roll and AC against visibly female humanoid creature and a -2 on Will save either produce by them or imitating them (such as an illusion). If the female humanoid is considered attractive the penalty to Attack and AC raise to -4 and they are unable to take attacks of opportunity on them.
If a visibly attractive female humanoid doing anything suggestive cause all dodoguaans in sight to make a Will save DC 15 or become dazed for 1 round and fascinated for as long as the activity continue or they are broken out of it. Finally if the female has Beauty Queen, Too Hot or other ability that denote exceptional attractiveness (such as being a half-nymph) she gain an extraordinary sanctuary (DC 11 + her own Charisma modifier) from the dodoguaans effect for as long as she do not break it.
