    A hideous predator from the Far Realm, tefleids resemble nothing more than a massive centipede, every segment of its body host to multiple segmented legs around its circumference. The head is uncannily like that of a bald human, although it is covered in chitin and the jaw seems unnaturally large and distended compared to the rest of the skull. The creature floats in the air, seemingly unaffected by gravity.

    Tefleid exist to undermine the foundations of reality, which they accomplish with their ability to produce reality acid. They measure twelve feet long from end to end and are about three feet in diameter. They weigh approximately 500 lbs. They do not speak any intelligible tongue, but make a constant rasping noise from deep inside their throat.

    Combat
    Form of Madness (Su):
    A creature within 60 feet that witnesses a tefleid use its reality acid special attack must make a DC 23 Will save or be struck terrified by the realization that the creature could emerge from any surface, at any time. Such creatures become shaken until this insanity is cured through the use of heal, greater restoration, miracle, or wish. A creature that makes the save is immune to that particular tefleid's form of madness for 24 hours. This is a mind-effecting fear effect that does not effect aberrations. The save DC is Charisma-based.
    Reality Acid (Su): As a standard action, a tefleid can produce a spray of intense, otherworldly acid. With a ranged touch attack, it can strike a creature or object within 30 feet, dealing 4d6 acid damage to the target. Unlike normal acid, this attack deals full damage to objects. Alternately, as a full-round action, a tefleid can use this ability to eat directly through a solid surface, creating a hole three feet across and up to five feet deep each round. Finally, once per day, a tefleid can use its reality acid to open a gaping hole in reality, allowing it to use a plane shift on itself, transporting it to any of the transitive planes (plane of shadow, ethereal plane, astral plane). This process takes a full minute, during which time the tefleid can take no action and cannot move.
    Seize into Madness (Sp): As a standard action up to three times per day, a tefleid produce a dominate monster effect targeting a creature made shaken by its form of madness. This effect lasts for a number of rounds equal to the tefleid's HD (usually 12 rounds) and can be negated by a Will save (DC 25). The saving throw is Charisma-based.
    Flight (Su): A tefleid is partially unbound from our plane's rules and natural laws; it can fly at up to half its base land speed with average maneuverability.
    Geometric Blasphemy (Ex): Despite its great size, a tefleid is unnaturally thin and can compress its body to fit through spaces as small as 2 feet by 2 feet in size.
