Half-fiends are creatures heavily tainted with demonic, infernal, or other evil power.

Creating a Half-Fiend

"Half-fiend" is an inherited or acquired template that can be added to a living, corporeal creature with an Int score of 4 or more. A half-fiend uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

CR: HD 4 or less, as base creature + 1; HD 5 to 10, as base creature + 2; HD 11 or more, as base creature + 3.

Alignment: Any evil.

Type: The creature's type changes to outsider (native). Do not recalculate HD, BAB, or saves.

Armor Class: Natural armor improves by +1.

Defenses/Qualities: Gains darkvision 60 feet; immunity to poison; acid, cold, electricity, and fire resistance 10; DR 5/magic (if HD 11 or less) or 10/magic (if HD 12 or more); and SR equal to creature's CR + 11 (maximum 35).

Speed: Unless the base creature flies better, the half-fiend flies at twice the base creature's land speed (good).

Melee: A half-fiend gains two claw attacks and a bite attack. Damage depends on its size (see pages 301–302).

Special Attacks: A half-fiend gains the following.

Smite Good (Su): Once per day, as a swift action, the half-fiend can smite good as the smite evil ability of a paladin of the same level as its Hit Dice, except affecting a good target. The smite persists until the target is dead or the half-fiend rests.

Spell-Like Abilities: A half-fiend with an Int or Wis score of 8 or higher has a cumulative number of spell-like abilities set by its HD. Unless otherwise noted, an ability is usable 1/day. CL equals the creature's HD (or the CL of the base creature's spell-like abilities, whichever is higher).

1–2Darkness 3/day
5–6Unholy blight
7–8Poison 3/day
13–14 Unholy aura 3/day, unhallow
15–16 Horrid wilting
17–18Summon monster IX (fiends only)
19–20 Destruction

Abilities: A half-fiend gains a +4 bonus on three ability scores of its choice and a +2 bonus on the other three.

Skills: A half-fiend with racial HD has skill points per racial HD equal to 6 + Int mod. Racial class skills are unchanged, and class level skill ranks are unaffected.
