    Rokurokubi

    This human-sized woman is dressed in simple peasant clothing. From her shoulders sprouts a grotesquely long neck that coils about like a snake, and razor-sharp teeth fill her gaping maw.

    SPECIAL ABILITIES

    Elongate Neck (Ex)

    A rokurokubi can stretch her neck from a normal human length up to 20 feet, giving her reach with her bite attack and threatening all squares within that range.

    Nightfall Aura (Su)

    A rokurokubi can create an aura of darkness and silence (CL 12th) with a radius of 15 feet. The rokurokubi is immune to the effects of her aura, and can activate or suppress this ability as a free action. These aura effects can be dispelled as if they were spells.

    No Sleep (Ex)

    A rokurokubi does not need to sleep and is immune to all sleep effects.

    Rokurokubi's Curse (Su)

    Bite—injury; save Will DC 23; frequency 1 day; effect 1 Cha damage and permanently silenced after 4 Cha damage. Fully healing the Cha damage cures the silence. The save DC is Charisma-based.
