Malevolent Temptress[edit]

She came to my office, her perfume smelled like fire and brimstone. Even though I knew she was trouble, she had somekind of inherent attraction. Just the sight of her reminded me of all my sins and washed away my regrets.
—Unknown, Human Sleepless Detective, ??

Sometime when an individual use too much malevolent virtue, they start developing fiendish-like traits and become corrupted by it. However sometime some of those individuals become so corrupted by the perfume, perhaps because of latent fiendish heritage, that they themslevs start to become more like the fiends who created them perfume. Malevolent Temptresses quickly start taking succubus-like traits, eventually becoming full fiend themselves.

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Malevolent Temptress.

Spellcasting: At each level except 1st and 6th, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a malevolent temptress, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

If you do not possess spellcasting you instead gain a bonus feat you meet the prerequisites of at 2nd and 4th level.

Dark Beauty (Ex): A 1st level malevolent temptress become extremely attractive, non-hostile creatures of the opposite gender (and some of the same) that are attracted to your type are one step friendlier towards you than normal (to a maximum of Friendly). This is only an 'initial attitude' - if you take any actions that harm or offend them, their attitude will adjust appropriately. Additionally you gain the seduce to learn ability.

Draining Kiss (Su): A 1st level malevolent temptress may decide to inflict 1d6 + her charisma modifier in non-lethal damage to any creature she kisses. If she does so she regain a number of hit point equal to the damage dealt. If she kiss a creature under 50% hit point it become fatigued (which stack with other fatigue effect and with itself). Attempting to kiss a creature in combat or a creature actively trying to prevent you from kissing them require a touch attack and is usable as a standard action.

Fiendish Form (Ex): Upon taking her first level in this prestige class, the malevolent temptress's type change to outsider and she gain the [evil] subtype. She is still resurrected like a creature of her former type. She lose all penalties associated with being tainted by malevolent virtue but the effect can no longer be removed.

Change Shape (Su): A 2nd level malevolent temptress gain the ability to change shape into any small or medium humanoid form. This is usually used to conceal the malevolent temptress's fiendish traits.

Dark Contract (Su): A 3rd level malevolent temptress is capable of using binding contract as a supernatural ability 3 time per day.

Temptation (Su): A 3rd level malevolent temptress may use suggestion as a supernatural ability at will on any creature indifferent of friendlier to her. That creature take a -4 penalty on it save if it had any intimate physical contact with the malevolent temptress within the last hour. The DC is charisma-based.

At 5th level she may use insidious suggestion with this ability.

Claws of Influence (Su): A 4th level malevolent temptress can as a swift action designate one creature within 30 feet of her to be the subject to her claw of influence ability. This creature take a -2 on all saving throw against the malevolent temptress's spells, spell-like ability and supernatural abilities. Additionally the malevolent temptress gain twice her class level as a bonus on bluff, diplomacy and intimidate checks against the target of her claw of influence.

A malevolent temptress may only have a single target of her claw of influence at any time, she may designate another target as a swift action. Once she relinquish her claws of influence on a creature it is allowed a will saving throw, if successful it recognize it was unnaturally influence and react appropriately. Once she relinquish control over her target she cannot affect that creature with her claws of influence for 24 hours, or ever again if it succeeded on it will saving throw.

Killing Kiss (Su): A 5th level malevolent temptress draining kiss may now deal lethal damage. Additionally she gain death attack as a SRD:Assassin except it is only usable with her draining kiss and the DC is charisma-based.

Final Transformation: At 6th level the malevolent temptress fully become one with her fiendish nature. She gain the extraplanar subtype with one of the lower plane (typically one that matches her alignment), grow large bat-like wings that grant her a fly speed of 60 ft. (average) and her charisma increase by 2.
