Ruined, Primatus

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you don’t like it
What’s with all the screaming?
You like monkeys, you like ponies
Maybe you don’t like monsters so much
Maybe I used too many monkeys
Isn’t it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

Special Abilities
Screaming (Ex) The too many monkeys that make up the primatus are constantly screaming. All creatures within 30 ft. of the screaming monkeys must make a Fortitude save or be nauseated for one round.
Shared Agony (Su) Primatus exists in a constant state of agony (which is the cause for the screaming). That agony is easily shared with others. Any time a primatus is targered with an attack that allows a Fortitude save, the attacker is also subjected to the attack.

Primatus are unnatural creatures created by others for the purpose of spreading terror throughout the land. Composed of seemingly innocous creatures, the primatus has been driven mad by the experimentation and attacks any other living thing it encounters. They attack without conscience and forcus all of their attacks on the closest living creature until it is dead. They have been known to break off their attack if targeted with spell, perhaps a hatred heldover from their initial creation.
Primatus also despire thier own appearance and will recoil from any reflection of their own monstrosity. The monkeys that have been amalgamated into its form never stop screaming so there is always some warning when a primatus has entered a new area.

On Porphyra
No faction on the Patchwork Planet take credit for the creation of the first ruined creature. Deists blame elementalist, elementalists blame deists, and primoridal mystic wonder how more and more of these things keep popping up. According to some accounts, the first primatus seems to have appeared Pre-Calling in the Boroughs of Dunmark. Though this information is suspect because so many descriptions of horrors in the borough are often vague and related to the madness of the author who penned the description.
