Lacedon speak the languages they spoke in life (usually Common). They lurk near hidden reefs or other places where ships are likely to meet their end. They have a base land speed of 30 feet and a swim speed of 30 feet and are found only in aquatic environments.
Lacedon try to attack with surprise whenever possible. They strike from behind tombstones and burst from shallow graves.
An afflicted humanoid who dies of ghoul fever rises as a lacedon at the next midnight. A humanoid who becomes a lacedon in this way retains none of the abilities it possessed in life. It is not under the control of any other lacedons, but it hungers for the flesh of the living and behaves like a normal lacedon in all respects.
Paralysis (Ex): Those hit by a lacedon’s bite or claw attack must succeed on a DC 12 Fortitude save or be paralyzed for 1d4+1 rounds. Elves have immunity to this paralysis. The save DC is Charisma-based.
