Flesh Stalker

By:

“Check the right flank, it seems to be weakening. be damned for their commander. I knew of Convius when I was fighting my way up to this position. It grieves me to say this, send in a stalker. Without him standing among his legions they will fall on our flank.

it grieves me that after today, I will not pit myself against him in battle one last time.”

Legatus Suuhai - Commander of the Minotaur Armies of the Blades - The Demon Wars

Full Description
A flesh stalker is a member of the Fel'Krethsh, or slave caste. However, they have been elevated higher among their fellow slaves because of their faithful service to the nobles. They have a bloodlust that matches that of the greediest Ba'craht. They are occasionally sent out to deal with difficult enemies, and are usually deep with numbers.

They are humanoid shape with two arms and two legs; however, their body has many protrusions growing from their body. They wear no clothing or armor and can wield no weapons as they have no hands. These protrusions are hard and can be used to impale their victims but grappling with them. Their arms have sharp spear like ends in place of hands that drip a narcotic drug that paralyzes their victims in moments. Anything being struck by this must make a check suitable to the game system against a poison or fall to the ground unable to move for hours. If the victim survives the attack after being paralyzed they must make three checks or they will gain an addictive reaction to the poison and need something to replace it. Drug addiction usually follows.

Additional Information
They are often used to hunt down single victims for their masters. Often members of an enemies ranking military or leaders. If a Flesh Stalker is not expected, then nothing can stop it from entering an area unnoticed to seek out its mission. They do so willingly and with great pleasure knowing they are pleasing their masters, but at the same time satisfying their blood lust. Such is the way for a violent addicted demon.

An interesting creature, I especially like the concept of their venom being addictive, it opens up some nasty adventure possibilities. I do get the feeling this sub is only partially finished however and leaves me with a fewquestions.

-"If a Flesh Stalker is not expected, then nothing can stop it from entering an area unnoticed to seek out its mission." 

How exactly does it go unnoticed? Does it have some sort of magical invisibility, teleporting, or a chameleon ability that lets it slip through the ranks? (Or can it perhaps use the protrusions to burrow through the ground and erupt under the enemies feet?)

Some more details into these creatures origins, (were they human slaves or lesser demons?) and covering how they earn such a loyalty would perhaps round out this piece and give a sense of completeness. (A few plot hooks could be nice as well)

I really liked this one.

 

Have you, just for yourself as a GM, worked on the mind set of demon yet?

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
