A Kitharee is essentially a guitar-shaped demon, it has a giant horned skull for a body and a filming mouth full of sharp teeth. It very metal to say the least. Kitharee hate fighting and greatly prefer performing, when not handled they are capable of only limited actions and thus are usually 'wielded' by another demon.
Ego Battle (Su): When a kitharee is picked up by a non-demonic creature it will immediately attempt to dominate it (as per dominate monster, caster level 5th, DC 17). If the kitharee win it will use the body of it new thrall as it fit (typically party and rock hard). If the creature win, it is able to use the kitharee for another hour before making another will save against domination.
There is an exception, a kitharee can allow itself to be wielded (but only by non-good creature) if offered a deal, it typically involve sex, alcohol and rock and roll. This overwrite the normal payment from summoning it with planar ally or similar spells.
Limited Action: A kitharee can only perform a single move action or standard action per turn. However when a creature use a kitharee as an instrument it is able to use any of the kitharee's special abilities (using the same type of action and their HD and ability score to determine the DCs). Additionally a kitharee can be used as a +2 burning roar flaming burst unholy greataxe if it willing allowed itself to be wielded.
Hellfire Blast(Su): A kitharee has a breath weapon it can use every 1d4 round, dealing 1d6 hellfire damage per HD in a 60 ft. cone.
Rock Out!: A kitharee and any creature wielding it gain a +20 bonus on perform (string) and it treated as having maximum ranks in it for it level. If the creature wielding it is a bard it bard level count as 4 higher for the purpose of determining which bardic music it can use and the bonus it grant.
Soul-Burning Solo (Su): As a standard action, all creature within 100 ft. of the kitharee must make a will save (DC is charisma-based, 17 for the kitahree) or fall under the effect of good hope for as long a you keep playing the soul-burning solo (move action). You cannot use Soul-Burning Solo while playing Soul-Chill Ballad or Soul-Searing Sexy Drift.
Soul-Chill Ballad (Su): As a standard action, all creature within 100 ft. of the kitharee must make a will save (DC is charisma-based, 17 for the kitahree) or fall under the effect of crushing despair for as long a you keep playing the soul-chill ballad (move action). You cannot use Soul Chill Ballad while playing Soul-Burning Solo or Soul-Searing Sexy Drift.
Soul-Searing Sexy Drift (Su): As a standard action, all creature within 100 ft. of the kitharee must make a will save (DC is charisma-based, 17 for the kitahree) or fall under the effect of unnatural lust for as long a you keep playing the soul-searing sexy drift (move action). You cannot use Soul-Searing Sexy Drift while playing Soul-Chill Ballad or Soul-Burning Solo.
