Wychfiend Wararch (General, CR 15)

This strange extraplanar humanoid has ruddy skin covered in tattoos, green eyes, pointed ears, and a long braided ponytail protruding from the back of his sleek great helm. His piercing eyes stare defiantly at you, making you feel uncomfortable.

Adapted Body (Ex) 

A wychfiend’s body has adapted to the rigors of planar travel and can breathe in any environment, including the elemental planes, toxic atmospheres, underwater, and even in a vacuum, as if under the constant effects of a necklace of adaptation. 

Wyching Bond (Su) 

Due to their otherworldly nature, a wychfiend can form a special magical bond with an item of the appropriate type, dependent upon the wychfiend’s career path. The wyching bond of those who choose a full caster level arcane spellcasting path is similar to the wizard’s arcane bond class feature. The wyching bond of those who select a more militant path is similar to the paladin’s divine bond class feature, but only applies to the wychfiend’s weapon or armor (see the Divine Bond alternate class feature of the Divine Defender paladin archetype in the Advanced Player’s Guide) and is not divine in nature, but arcane, and draws upon the wyching energies innate to the wychfiend. 

Wychsteel Affinity (Ex) 

Because of its ethereal nature, some unexplained kinship exists between wychfiends and armor crafted from wychsteel. This mystical connection allows any wychfiend wearing such armor to completely ignore any chance of spell failure normally imposed by the armor. It is for this reason that wychfiends hold wychsteel full plate armor in such high esteem, and will sacrifice their lives to protect or retrieve such armor when it falls into the hands of other races.
