The vathor is a demon archetype which originates from an unknown valence. It is not known to have any subtypes. It is classified as a lesser demon, and cannot be summoned, but has been used by powerful beings to attack various cities in Elanthia. It is capable of performing a necromantic ritual in which it transmutes the corpse of a player character into a creature called a necleriine.

Physical Description

a huge incarnadine vathor

The incarnadine vathor is a towering humanoid monstrosity of muscle, teeth, and fire, its skin dark as dried bloodstains and dotted with stone-like black clusters of razored spikes. Its long, wolf-like snout is lined with jagged teeth, and heat rises up from its maw in steaming, blurry waves. Its beastly face is framed by two large horns, each ridged and glistening as if they were carved from dark basalt. Two massive wings flow out from its back, black and membranous like a bat's, and tipped in black-taloned hooks.


Vathors have a number of strong combat abilities. When swung at the attack will often be repelled by the chaotic forces surrounding the vathor. Offensively the vathor can swing as normal, cast open implosion, cast weapon fire, it has a call wind effect when it takes off, and it can dive down to the ground with a SMR ability with a similar resolution to charge. It can cast a major ewave like ability with fire attunement.

Creating a Necleriine

A huge incarnadine vathor suddenly plunges its talons into <character>'s chest, snapping through the ribcage in one effortless movement. In mere seconds, the vathor rips out the dead heart of <character>, clutching it in its black talons tightly.

Incanting something in a dark language, the incarnadine vathor stares deeply at the crimson heart within its claws, flames shrouding the organ in ever-tighter rings, searing the flesh and singing it until it becomes deep black in hue. Overlapping circles of sigils dotted with patterns of complex angles wink into existence below the heart, twining like living serpents of flame as they flare brightly under the vathor's speech.

After a moment, the black heart begins to beat slowly.

Casting a disdainful glance towards <character>, the vathor suddenly raises its other claw, causing an inferno to engulf her corpse in an instant. Directing its burning gaze back to the slowly beating heart in its hands as liquified flesh rises up from the burning corpse of <character> in a swirling column, the burnt, liquid-like mass of crushed bone, charred skin and boiling blood propelled quickly to swirl around the heart in concentric rings.

The heart begins to beat faster, and the vathor brings its talons to bear upon its own flesh, ripping open its wrist to send forth a torrent of fire-laced blood through the air to swirl in an opposing direction of the liquified flesh amassing around the black heart.

With a sharp nod from the vathor, both flesh and flame converge upon the heart, shrouding it in a mass of gore and fire, growing around it at a rapid pace to form a vague silhouette of... something. Then, the fire blazes up blinding in its incarnadine hues.

As the light fades, a winged spindly necleriine steps forth from the unholy forge of flesh and hellfire, its face a horrible cariacture of <character>'s!

Other Information

Both vathors and necleriine are extraplanar beings.
