This imp is a runt even compared to its kind. It will need to work hard at being evil if it wants to become a proper imp.
Not quite as good as a proper imp, they are fiendish souls who aren't good enough for imphood but have, for some reason or another, avoided service as a mere lemure. While as craven as any imp, they are somehow even more zealous to prove their stuff in order to hold onto their current form.
In its natural form, an impette stands about 1 foot tall and weighs about 4 pounds. It speaks Common and Infernal.
Impettes are craven, but not so timid as to pass up an opportunity for a surprise attack using their invisibility and alternate form ability. In its natural form, an impette attacks with the wicked stinger on its tail. It quickly flies out of reach if a foe manages to strike back effectively.
An impette’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.
Once per week an impette can use augury. The ability otherwise works as the spell (caster level 2nd).
