Special Abilities
Change Shape (Su) The shiko-me can assume one of three of the following elemental forms and gains a number of abilities when in that form.

The shiko-me is a servant of the Infernal powers that is tasked with punishing mortals that defy their dictums or otherwise engage in chaotic activity. To this end, they form small groups that have varied abilities, the better to complete their task- thus they act as a small, organized task force. They are dedicated in their task, as their reward for success is freedom on the Material Plane, to indulge their hunger for mortal sustenance and pleasures.

Formed by the will of powerful Infernal beings out of common elements, shiko-me are in no way human, though they envy normal mortals, and emulate them whenever possible, imitating costume, dance and customs quite competently. A favorite tactic of the hell-hags is to set up in an abandoned roadhouse or inn, tempting travelers with music and dance. With the resources gained from victims, they close in on their given targets, often noble warriors of chaotic nature. They typically adopt female guise to lower humanoids’ defenses.

On Porphyra
Shiko-me are the pawns and tools of the Elemental Lords Grunzol and Qarryn who, in partnership with the oni-lord Kurofu, continue to plague the Lung People with these deceitful terrors.
