About Inikai

Verify HP and Skill points


Inikai was born in the city of Magnimar to a low-level priest of Nethys and his Shoanti maid-servant, a woman of the Shriikirri-Quah (Hawk Clan); he shows signs of his mother's heritage in his slightly ruddy skin and his close-cropped hair. When Inikai was fifteen years old his father was sent to Sandpoint to collect texts that the church of Nethys considered heretical and carry them to Magnimar for suppression. Inikai intended to follow in his father's footsteps and lead a quiet life of religious study. The calm of Sandpoint seemed to present a perfect environment for his apprenticeship to the clergy of the All-Seeing Eye.

For the first few years that he resided in Sandpoint Inikai proved to be, at best, an indifferent student. Though he was fascinated by magic he displayed little inclination for learning the dogmatic tenets of Nethys's faith. That his father was a distant, taciturn man in his teaching even more than he was in his parenting did little to endear Inikai to the path of the church.

Everything changed for Inikai when he found the forbidden books that his father had gathered. The youngster was instantly consumed by the thought of wielding power that is denied to mortals. He hid his study of the banned tomes from his father and secretly made copies of them which he then concealed. Inikai neglected his religious studies in favor of this secret pursuit. His father did not hide the disappointment he felt in his son's failure to master the priestly rites and the two grew more estranged.

Inikai's father was killed by Chopper two years after arriving in Sandpoint. Inikai has supported himself by assisting Ilsoari at the Turandok Academy and as a scribe since then. His ambition is to amass a library of magic tomes so that he can command greater powers. It will require more gold than a scribe makes to fulfill this dream.

Current powers


From Zceryll:

Alien form: While bound to Zceryll, the binder gains the pseudonatural template (page 161 of Complete Arcane).
Zceryll Reference:
Pseudonatural Template (Complete Arcane, p161):
Can be applied to any corporeal creature
Size and Type: Type changes to Outsider
Special Attacks: Once per day, a pseudonatural creature can cast True Strike on itself as a supernatural ability.
Special Qualities: Resistance (Ex): A pseudonatural creature has a resistance to acid and electricity based on the base creature’s Hit Dice, see table below.
Damage Reduction (Ex): A pseudonatural creature gains damage reduction based on the base creature’s Hit Dice, see table below.

Hit Dice Acid, Electricity DR
4-7 5 5
8-11 10 5/magic
12+ 15 10/magic

Spell Resistance (Ex): The creature gain a SR of 10 + Base Creature’s HD (Maximum 25)
Alternate Form (Su): As a standard action, a pseudonatural creature can take the form of a grotesque, tentacled mass (or another appropriately gruesome form, as determined by the DM). Despite the alien appearance, its abilities remain unchanged. Other creatures receive a -1 morale penalty on their attack rolls against a pseudonatural creature when it is in this alternate form.
Abilities: Same as base creature but Intelligence is at least 3.

Alien Mind: The binder's mind is alien and does not work like that of a normal mortal. He is immune to Confusion, Insanity, and Weird spells. In addition, the binder receives a +1 bonus per four binder levels on saving throws against mind-affecting effects.

Bolts of Madness: The binder can fire a ray that dazes an opponent for 1d3 rounds. The binder must succeed on a ranged touch attack with a range of 100 feet + 10 feet per binder level. A successful Will save negates the effect. Once the binder has used this ability, he cannot do so again for 5 rounds.

Summon Alien: The binder can summon any creature from the Summon Monster list that a sorcerer of his level could summon. Any creature the binder summons with this ability gains the pseudonatural template. Thus, at 10th level the binder could summon any creature from the summon monster I-V list. When the binder reaches14th level, he can summon any creature from the summon monster I-VII list. The binder can only summon creatures that can be affected by the pseudonatural template. Once the binder has used this ability, he cannot do so again for 5 rounds.

Telepathy: The binder gains the telepathy ability with a range of 100 feet (as described on page 316 of the Monster Manual) and the Mindsight feat (as described on page 126 of Lords of Madness). Benefit: A creature that has this feat can detect and pinpoint beings that are not mindless (anything with an Intelligence score of 1 or higher) within range of its telepathy. This works much like blindsense - the creature knows what square each thinking being is in but it does not see the being and the being still has total concealment unless the creature can see it by some other means. The creature also perceives several observable characteristics about each being detected with mindsight, including the being's type and Intelligence score. The creature need not take any additional or special actions to gain this information; it is as obvious to mindsight as the being's race and clothing would be to eyesight.

Normal: Telepathy offers no special ability to sense other minds. The creature has to know that a being is there to communicate with it telepathically.

From Shub-niggurath:

Scavenging Gullet: The binder gains the Scavenging Gullet feat from Lords of Madness. This allows him to eat almost any organic material and gain nutrition and find any such 'foodstuff' quite palatable. In addition, he is immune to nonmagical ingested poisons and diseases.

Great Constitution: While bound to Shub-Niggurath, the binder gains a +4 bonus to his constitution and gains bonus hit points accordingly. These hit points are treated as normal hit points, not bonus hit points.

Lesser Call Dark Young: The binder can call upon the powers of the dark young of Shub-Niggurath. He can create the effect of an Evard's Black Tentacles spell, with the following changes: only one tentacle is summoned at a time and lasts for one round per two effective binder levels, for every round someone remains grappled he takes five points of cold damage and there is a 50% chance the creature will take 1 point of wisdom damage. The binder must wait five rounds after this power ends before using it again.

Foul Breath: As a standard action the binder can give off a breath of foul, green gas. This gas stinks of rotting meat and vegetation. The breath is a 30-foot cone of gas with two effects. All creatures caught in the area of the cone take 1d6 points of acid damage per two effective binder levels up to 5d6 at 10th level. Victims are allowed a Reflex save for half damage. All creatures with a constitution score that breathe must make a Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1d4+1 rounds. This power can be used once every five rounds. This does not count as a use of a natural breath weapon for creatures such as dragons that must wait after using their own breath weapons.
