Special Abilities

Elemental Rays (Su) Khyzzos can project up to four bolts of energy with a range of 60 feet and no range increment. Each bolt deals 3d6 points of acid, cold, electricity, or fire damage on a successful ranged touch attack. Khyzzos can fire single bolt of each energy type at the same time.

Elemental Rip (Su) Khyzzos's bite pierces through the magical effects that grant resistance to acid, cold, electricity, or fire damage, or absorb such types of damage, affecting them as targeted greater dispel magic with CL 12th.

Fourfold Mind (Ex) Khyzzos four minds are hard to control. It can roll a saving throw against mind-affecting effect twice and pick the better result.

Unrestrained By Elements (Ex) Khyzzos is never hindered or stopped in its movement by obstacles made of air, earth, fire, or water, nor can be trapped with them as if protected by freedom of movement.

Weave Elements (Su) Khyzzos can shape air, earth, fire, and water into weird shapes, semi-solidifying them until disturbed. Each 5-ft cube requires a hour or more of work, depending upon the intricacy of the designs and patterns imbued into the elements.

Khyzzos That Is Four is a spidery entity travelling the verges between the elemental planes and adorning them with beautiful but eerie elemental sculptures. It seems to be driven by four distinct minds, sharing single body, single set of memories, skills, and abilities, and a sense of identity as Khyzzos. However, they are unable to share thoughts directly and have to communicate with each other by speaking—often quietly murmuring to oneself. Each of the minds is capable of speaking at the same time, making listening to Khyzzos argument with oneself a confusing task. Each of the individual minds speaks in a different elemental language and Khyzzos minds often switch during conversation, sometimes even in the middle of sentence.

Khyzzos That Is Four loves to work with elements and create its sculptures, and is sometimes called by genies, elemental lords, and powerful conjurers to serve as an artist.
