A buff imp stands almost 2 feet tall and weighs about 18 pounds, covered in reddish skin. Their wings are atrophied, while their bodies are freakishly muscular for their size. Some have small spikes or nubs protruding from their skin. Some look more humanoid in appearance, while others are more goblin-like or animalistic.


A buff imp attacks with its hard little fists. If it takes damage and can't finish off an opponent quickly, it may try to bargain... or run away barring that.

An imp’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as evil-aligned and lawful-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Spell-Like Abilities: At will—detect good, detect chaos, detect magic (self only); 1/day—bull's strength (self only). Caster level 4th. The DCs are Charisma-based.

A buff imp's tiny wings allow it to take half damage from falling so long is it is not held immobile, entangled or unconscious.

A buff imp gains a +2 racial bonus on Disguise, Listen, Spot and Survival. It uses either its Charisma or Wisdom for its Profession (Barrister) skill checks.


Buff imps can be used as familiars for lawful evil spellcasters with the Improved Familiar feat and at least caster level 3rd.
