Special Abilities
Electricity Aura (Su) Creatures take 2d4 points of electricity damage per round while within 5 feet of the keiehri (Reflex DC 16 negates). The save DC is Constitution-based.
Mind Switch (Su) Twice per day, a kei-ehri can swap the minds of any two living corporeal creatures (possibly including itself) within 30 feet. This is similar to the power true mind switch, but neither creature can voluntarily switch back and there is no Hit Dice limit. Each creature must fail a DC 16 Will save for the switch to occur. The effect is accompanied by a lightning bolt that travels between the creatures at the moment of transfer. The death of the kei-ehri’s original body returns all switched minds to their proper places without harm, but also kills both the kei-ehri and any creature in the kei-ehri’s body. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Kei-ehri are psionic, lithovores that have enormous power over thought and electricity. Kei-ehri make their forest or jungle nests from toppled trees, leaves, and other foliage, and spend their days searching for the stones and crystals that compose their diet. They rarely interact with creatures, including their own kind. Despite this, kei-ehri are never strictly alone: from before birth, they can hear “loose thoughts” around them–mental impressions, ideas, and words that escape creatures’ minds and float through the atmosphere as electrical signals.

On Porphyra
Originally from the Vila Forest in the Pinnacle Lands, kei-ehri have spread to the Pyynian Coast, Californ the Eternal Jungle, and Rellak Isle. The rellaks consider the lithovores to be a dangerous invasive species and often offer rewards for the beasts electrical hides.
