Special Abilities


Afraid Of Storms (Ex) Lightnings are deadly threat to otherwise rather resilient Ixi, who is rightfully shaken while within the area of a storm, natural or artificial.

Alien Sustenance (Ex) Xix does not seem to eat or drink anything resembling normal food or liquid.

Restorative Regrowth (Ex) While the Xix's regeneration remains active, it heals 1 point of ability damage per round and can remove one of the following conditions at the beginning of Ixi's turn: blinded, cowering, dazed, dazzled, deafened, diseased, bleeding, frightened, nauseated, panicked, paralyzed, poisoned, sickened, staggered, stunned, or unconscious. It can't remove curse effects, however.

Xix Ixi Xix is a traveler from another, significantly distinct universe. Xix ventured forth driven by curiosity and wish to experience art from other dimensions. It seems that Xix's universe does not contain humanoid life (or anything that wouldn't be qualified as aberration to be blunt) and takes the form of a vast space filled with a fluid of varied density as well as occasional bubble of gas with rocks floating within. This description could be an error in translation of Xix's less than perfect understanding of already complex and hard to translate Aklo.

Despite minor issues in communication and significant biological and cultural differences, Xix is a very chummy alien entity, friendly to every being encountered, insatiably curious, often to the point of asking questions that would be deemed improper. Xix is also prone to interpreting everything in terms of art.
