Monster: Voyeurist Kyton

Kyton, Voyeurist

The almost-perfect androgynous body of this anthropomorphic figure is marred by presence of too many eyes in their shadowed face, and more eyes implanted in the palms of their hands, their chest, and their stomach. The implanted eyes seem to bleed inky shadows leaving strangely fascinating patterns on the pale flesh.

Special Abilities

Can't Look Away (Ex) A voyeurist is essentially incapable of not looking on anything worth looking. It can't avert eyes to avoid gaze attacks and it suffers –4 penalty to saving throws against visual patterns.

Glimpse Of Torment (Su) A creature struck by one of a voyeurist's slam attacks has a profound vision of hellish landscape where kytons torment their victims and becomes staggered for 1d3 rounds. A successful Will saving throw against DC of 17 negates the effect. The suffering experienced strips away the sense of self inflicting 1d3 points of temporary Charisma damage each round on a failed Fortitude saving throw. A voyeurist can also deliver this effect with a touch as a standard action. This is a mind-affecting pain effect. The saving throw DC is Charisma-based.

Unnerving Gaze (Su) A creature succumbing to a voyeurist's gaze suffers –10 penalty to Perception and Sense Motive checks and, outside of combat, becomes fascinated with voyeurist for 1 minute. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.

Voyeurist's Mark (Su) A voyeurist can place an invisible magic mark on a single creature within line of sight as a standard action (a successful Will saving throw with DC of 17 negates the mark and makes the creature forever immune to the individual voyeurist's mark). As long as they remain on the same plane of existence, the voyeurist can observe the marked creature and its surroundings as if using greater scrying, with no saving throw allowed. The mark can be detected with detect evil, detect magic, or detect scrying spells or similar effects and removed with break enchantment, dispel evil, erase and similar effects. It also vanishes if the voyeurist marks another creature. The saving throw DC is Charisma-based.

While all kytons are sadistic beings, voyeurist kytons love to watch mortals suffer. They are not above causing pain themselves, though given a chance they will remain in the background and watch others tormenting and being tormented. They view themselves as chroniclers, critics, and judges of pain and suffering, often exchanging their experiences via mindlink, in a sort of twisted reflection of sharing of the academic notes. A group of voyeurists can gather to oversee activities by lesser kytons or even other fiends, acting as a sort of art critics clique, even going as far as to score "the performance".
