Veltis the Devourer
By Al Sousa
Type Large outsider (chaotic, extraplanar, evil)

   Veltis fights with his claws. It also gains power as it consumes life increasing his abilities. Veltis can't be destroyed. It may be un-summoned from this plane back to the negative material plane or dismembered. Once summoned from the negative material plane Veltis's abilities are drained to their minimum power levels.

Acidic Body (Su): Veltis's body excretes acid. Anything touching (including weapons) contacting its body is subjected to 2d8 acidic damage. Against weapons this acid goes against it's hardness.

Drain Life (Sp): If he hits a living being they are subject to a death like necromantic ability (will save DC 25 or die). This takes a 1/2 action. For every life force drained this ability gains 1' in diameter range. For every 10 life forces killed this ability is able to affect an addition life form. Thus when 50 life forms are successfully drains the ability has a range of 50' and Veltis may drain 5 life forms at once.

Sense Good/Life (Sp): Range of 100'.

Regeneration (Su): Veltis may not be destroyed. He will always regenerate even if his body is cut into parts. His body parts will slowly disintegrate and reform itself on the torso over a single day. Magic can prevent this ability. Veltis may recover any detached limb, except his head, and place it back on his body completely regenerating it back to his body with 1/2 an action.

   When universe was created with all things good also came evil, with all life came unlife, with creation came oblivion. Such is the balance of the universe.

   With the coming of the gods came the knowledge of the universe. With this knowledge the gods created beings to serve their purpose, mortals. Knowledge was passed from gods to mortals so they may fight their wars, believe in hope, and fear the darkness. Oblivion itself was given a name by the mortals, and its name was Veltis the Devourer.

   Created from the existence of the universe Veltis slept. As more came to know Veltis so came his power. Veltis formed into a dormant being with all knowledge of the universe and the ability to destroy all life. It has no fear, no mercy, no love for anything that does not help serve its purpose.

   Veltis consumes life, that is all it exists for. Veltis can be summoned by those with the knowledge and power to do so. Veltis can be bargained with for any scientific or magical knowledge in the universe except how to kill him. Since Veltis consumes all life it does not care what knowledge he reveals as long as his purposed is also served.

   Once summoned Veltis will work with any evil beings. Any non-evil beings will be consumed as soon as he detects them unless certain protective spells are in place. After a bargain is struck with Veltis he will begin consumption of life within the world he is summoned. If he does not like the summoner he will consume him first.

   Veltis can't be destroyed. If his head is severed from his body he may use none of his powers and stops excreting acid from its body. If this happens his head will start to disintegrate and reform on the body within a day as will any limb that has been severed.
