Special Abilities

Dazing Touch (Sp) You can cause a living creature to become dazed for 1 round as a melee touch attack. Creatures with more Hit Dice than your wizard level are unaffected. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.

Enchanting Smile (Su) You gain a +2 enhancement bonus on Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate skill checks. This bonus increases by +1 for every five wizard levels you possess, up to a maximum of +6 at 20th level. At 20th level, whenever you succeed at a saving throw against a spell of the enchantment school, that spell is reflected back at its caster, as per spell turning.

Aura of Despair (Su) As a standard action, you can emit a 30-foot aura of despair for a number of rounds per day equal to your wizard level. Enemies within this aura take a –2 penalty on ability checks, attack rolls, damage rolls, saving throws, and skill checks. These rounds do not need to be consecutive. This is a mind-affecting effect.

Poison (Ex) Bite—injury; save Fort DC 22; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d2 Str; cure 2 consecutive saves.

Combat Quick Reference

Default Tactics

First Choice: Issilar avoids melee combat if he can, possibly using spider climb. Then he uses hold person or lightning bolt.

Second Choice: Issilar uses his major image spell-like ability to make things seem like they’re going well for him and badly for his opponents.

Last Choice: If somehow forced into melee combat, he attacks with his +1 dagger and bite, hoping that his poison will affect his foe. He retreats from melee combat as soon as he is able.


Issilar used to be the leader of the Saventh-Yhi serpentfolk. When Akarundo took over the tribe, Issilar fled rather than die trying to hold on to power. He met with some charau-ka who worship Ydersius, and convinced their leader, Raogru, that he was an emissary from their shared god. As a result, Issilar indirectly commanded a tribe of charau-ka and decided to use them to retake the Saventh-Yhi serpentfolk from Akarundo.

Issilar has heard conflicting reports of what Ydersius is actually like. Now that he has met many other purecast serpentfolk he no longer knows quite who to believe, and feels that he has been used repeatedly by those of his kind. He misses the simpler days when he ruled over the tribe in Saventh-Yhi, but he knows that they’re over for good.
