The humanoid figures standing before you were all of identical appearance: Tall, bald, with alabastar skin, pitch black eyes, and glossy black teeth. In truth their entire skeletons were black as night, with cloudy light gray ichor for blood that flows like water. Their presence is yet majestic and intimidating.
Outsiders designed to watch and observe other beings, amongst mortals they have sometimes been confused for aliens when their origins are celestial in nature. They are stoic, silent beings who tower over most men and have been tasked with the goal of observation and watching. Though they are ostensibly lawful good, many stand by ideally watching even in the face of evil, for it is not they who are tasked with punishment. But given the opportunity and command, they gladly lash out at evil with a repressed rage unleashed upon their opponent. Perhaps it is the pent up anger of having watched evil before and done naught.
Most vigilaels hide amongst others either in vehicles, through indirect contacts, or sometimes under disguise as a tall but normal mortal man. They gather what they know and report to their masters when their missions reach an end. Vigilaels speak Common and Celestial, but often choose silence unless a response is needed or a disguise must be kept. They stand on average 7 feet tall and weigh 300 lbs.
If a vigilael is planning for combat, they suit up with weapons and armor as any humanoid would. They have the usual outsider weapon proficiencies, and all armor and shield proficiencies. Due to their logos hivemind, they are capable of coordination and tactics beyond most mortal men. They possess powerful grapples and are not afraid to use it to choke a creature to death.
Bio-Android (Ex): Vigilaels are more organic than most logos creatures. They retain full benefit from cure spells as well as repair spells.
Extraordinary Health (Ex): A vigilael always receives maximum hit points per hit die.
Immunities (Ex): Vigilaels are immune to fear, disease, mind-affecting effects, and poison.
Living Ichor (Ex): The blood of vigilaels is a powerful alchemical agent which fills them with life, but also is a powerful mutagenic. The clear substance quickly oxidizes with air turning pitch black. The living ichor automatically stabilizes the vigilael, and makes them immune to bleeding and bleeding out. They also gain hard ability damage reduction (constitution) 1. If slain it leaves a pool of blackening ichor in its square, which deals 1d6 points of damage to organic creatures standing in the square each round. If ingested, it becomes a mutagen that affects the target with liefeld's curse with instantaneous duration (Fortitude DC 18). On a result of 12, they instant completely change race as if affected by reincarnate. Lastly if applied to a corpse, the corpse is affected by reincarnate. The ichor loses potency after 24 hours.
Powerful Build (Ex): The physical stature of vigilael lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger. Whenever a vigilael is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the vigilael is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A vigilael is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A vigilael can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.
Skills: A vigilael has a +4 racial bonus to Listen, Sense Motive, and Spot.
