    When a woman dies in childbirth, she may rise as a horrific undead creature that turns her grief and loss into predatory sexual behavior. A cihuateotl's true form is that of a grotesque parody of a pregnant woman with a skeletal face and eagle-like claws for hands.

    Typically, a cihuateotl lures a lone male with her false beauty and seductive aura for an evening of pleasure that turns into carnage in the morning when her true form is revealed.

    Cihuateotls speak Common and 2 other languages she knew in life.


    In her natural form, a cihuateotl attacks with her claws but in alternate form she fights with simple weapons or makes unarmed attacks.

    Alternate Form (Su): A cihuateotl can assume the shape of a beautiful, graceful, and voluptuous female Humanoid or Monstrous Humanoid as a standard action. While in alternate form, the cihuateotl loses her natural claw attack and horrific appearance ability, but it gains the natural and extraordinary special attacks of her new form. She can remain in that form until she assumes another or until sunrise, whereupon she automatically reverts to her true form for one hour. A true seeing spell or ability reveals her true form and horrific appearance (see below), immediately triggering the effect.

    Aura of Seduction (Su): A miasma of lust surrounds a cihuateotl. Any young adult or older male Humanoid or Monstrous Humanoid within a 20-foot radius of a cihuateotl must succeed on a Will save (DC 25) to resist her effects. Those that fail take a -2 penalty on attacks, AC, and saves, for 24 hours or until they successfully become intimate with the cihuateotl that generated the aura. A creature that has resisted or broken the effect cannot be affected again by the same cihuateotl's aura for 24 hours. A target that has taken a vow of chastity gains a +6 insight bonus to resist this aura. However, a target that has the Scent ability takes a -4 penalty to the save. A cihuateotl can suppress this ability as a free action. The save DC is charisma-based.

    Aversion to Children (Ex): A cihuateotl cannot bear the sight of children and she will not approach within 30 feet of one. She is shaken for as long as a child remains within range, taking -2 penalty on all attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks.

    Confounding Claws (Sp): A creature that takes damage from a cihuateotl's claws must succeed at Will save (DC 16) or be confused as the spell. A successful save negates the effect. The save DC is wisdom-based. CL 15.

    Fast Healing (Ex): A cihuateotl regains 2 hit points each round.

    Horrific Appearance (Su): Any living creature within 60 feet that views the real visage of a cihuateotl must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 25) or immediately take 1d3 points of Strength damage, 1d3 points of Dexterity damage, and 1d3 points of Constitution damage. A creature that successfully saves against this effect cannot be affected by the same cihuateotl’s horrific appearance for 24 hours. The save DC is charisma-based.

    Immunities (Ex): Cihuateotls are immune to polymorph (though they can use polymorph effects on themselves), and mind-affecting attacks.

    Semblance of Life (Su): As long as a cihuateotl remains in her alternative form, she appears to be fully alive and not even detect undead spells reveals her true nature. While a cihuateotl does not need to breathe or eat, she may do so if she wishes. A cihuateotl can pretend to sleep. A successful DC 20 Spot check reveals that a sleeping cihuateotl is actually awake.

    Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): At will—charm monster (DC 22), detect good, detect thoughts (DC 20) Caster level 15th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    Spell Resistance (Ex): A chiuateotl has spell resistance equal to her Hit Dice.

    Turn Resistance (Ex): A cihuateotl has +4 turn resistance.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.
