Daemon, Erotodaemon
Dressed in the finest of silks and golden bangles, this creature appears as a beautiful woman melded onto a copy of her own body in a centaur-like construction. A strong silver chain binds her to her master’s side.

Special Abilities
Heartstone (Su) This stone can be removed from an immobilized erotodaemon through a DC 30 Heal check. Multiple checks can be attempted but each attempt, successful or not, deals 3d8 points of damage to the erotodaemon. Any creature that holds or wears the heartstone is completely immune to the erotodaemon’s spell-like abilities, pleasure touch and can, once per 1d4 rounds, cause the erotodaemon immense pain by squeezing the stone. This agony deals 3d6 points of nonlethal damage to the erotodaemon and stuns her for 1d4 rounds. This effect automatically triggers if the erotodaemon attempts to touch her own heartstone or attack its bearer.
Intercept Summoning (Su) Once per day, an erotodaemon can attempt to intercept a summoning spell or ability intended to seize a creature on the same plane as the erotodaemon. An erotodaemon is automatically aware of summoning attempts within 300 miles of its location. An erotodaemon has a 25% chance of redirecting the summoning spell onto herself. If the erotodaemon is successful, she arrives at the location of the summoner, though she can act independently and remains until dismissed by the summoner. As a result, most erotodaemons feign loyalty to their summoners until they can use their pleasure touch to ensure their aid.
Pleasure Touch (Su) Any non-outsider struck by the erotodaemon’s slam attack or that touches an erotodaemon in any way must make a Will save (DC 22) or be overwhelmed with pleasure. Affected creatures take a -4 penalty on attack rolls, skill checks and ability checks for one hour as their senses are overwhelmed by pure, unadulterated pleasure. This effect negates and is in turn negated by the effect of spells and abilities that cause agony, such as symbol of pain. Subsequent touches do not stack, but each touch or round of contact after the first deepens the pleasure and deals 1d4 points of Wisdom damage. An erotodaemon can suppress or resume this ability as a free action. The save DC is Charisma based.

Erotodaemons travel to the material planes to spread ruin amongst hedonistic nobility. Some postulate that the souls that mature into the form of an erotodaemon within the plane of Abaddon were once female victims of abuse, slavery or prostitution. Regard less of their origin, erotodaemons charm their way into the bedchambers and harems of powerful rulers through the Material Plane. Once ensconced within the confidence of their patron they slowly rob them of their wits, wealth and power until all they possessed lies in ruin.

Most erotodaemons avoid physical combat, relying instead on their charm and cunning to lure their enemies into their lurid embrace.

The Heartstone
Each erotodaemon has a four inch long red gemstone that replaces the heart in its upper body. The heartstone weighs ½ pound, has a hardness of 10 and 15 hp. If the stone is destroyed the erotodaemon is immediately slain. An erotodaemon can only safely handle her own heartstone if it is surrendered to her willingly. Once this happens the erotodaemon can absorb the heartstone back into her body as a full round action.

On Porphyra
Whether by accident or by design, most erotodaemons have a form very similar to the dhosari. Perhaps it was in their dealing with erotodaemons that erkunae became enamored with the quadribrachial form and this fascination eventually led to the enslavement of the dhosari.

The Daemon Empress
The Mists of Erkusaa conceal much, such as the legacy of The Daemon Empress Xlamidaia, erotodaemon consort, and later Her Opalescence Xlamidaia, First of Her Name, Empress of Erkusaa and all the Erkunae…

His Opalescence Ycarac the 7th was self-indulgent and quite happy to pursue the fad that was “religion”. Studiously avoiding the traditional field of Proteans, Ycarac delved into old, old scrolls (his only apparent talent) and found reference to “The six-limbed goddess” and proceeded to drain the treasury to access their allure. For dhosari were still common and under strict control on Erkusaa, and Ycarac had abused many, reveling in his ability to control the large beings. Th en, he succeeded in summoning… the erotodaemon Xlamidaia, the reality that brought shame to actuality, the force of passion that made all the universe cease its need for existence—quite precisely the motto for the erkunae race, but never
brought to such exquisite manifestation.

Ycarac obtained the precious heartstone of Xlamidaia, and for an entire year, the Lower Halls of G’sho’laa’n’rr knew a kind of emancipating ignorance, as the Opal Throne ignored them completely, and the myriad courtiers paralyzed with indecision. Many erkunae freebooters of lower class headed to the high seas, and today their descendants live on such islands as Opal. But when that year was up, a greater change took place.

Ycarac and Xlamidaia emerged, Ycarac upon her back, drooling and smiling. For seven years he was catatonic, kept alive only by the tender care of the six-limbed daemon. For the remaining erkunae, it was a demidecade of horror, houses driven to degeneracy, plagues of unspeakable nature, festivals of such depravity the only thing worse than attending them was the desire to attend them again. Eventually, extraplanar means were found to send summonings Xlamidaia’s way, finding the small
weakness in her daemonic power. She was torn from Ycarac’s side, and he was left respectfully to starve…

Immediately after, the position of The Emperor’s Nurse was established, who serves but one purpose… to kill the Emperor if his actions seem to threaten the traditional existence of Erkusaa—and then be executed himself. It is surprising how often the nation has wept over the death of a Nurse.
