PFRPG: Færie Bestiary: The Red Queen

The Red Queen
A beautiful elven woman lounges upon an obsidian throne. As she beckons closer you notice her hands are actually terrible claws. She notices your hesitation and smiles at you with a mouth full of sharp teeth dripping with venom.

Special Abilities
Charming Breath (Su) Instead of a cone of fire, the Red Queen can breathe a cone of charm monster gas. Targets must make a Will save or be compelled to regard her as their trusted friend and ally (treat the targets’ attitude as friendly). If the creatures are currently being threatened or attacked by her or her allies, however, they receive a +5 bonus on its saving throw. This is a mind-affecting compulsion effect.
Control Weather (Su) The Red Queen has complete control over the weather when she is holding court in the Red Kingdom or when she occupies any 10-mile square on the Chessboard. If she and the White Queen occupy the same 10-mile square on the Chessboard, she must make an opposed concentration check (+26) to control the weather.
Geas Gaze (Su) Lesser geas (effects creatures with 7 HD or less), 30 feet, Will DC 26 negates. The save is Charisma-Based. This is a language-dependant, mind-affecting compulsion effect.
Grant Mythic Power (Su) The Red Queen can bestow up to three mythic tiers on mortals, individuals from the Material Plane, whom she delegates as her agents in Déscaradh. Depending on how satisfied she is with their execution of the trials she gives them, she may allow them to keep the tiers, a fraction of the tiers, or only three uses of mythic power per day upon completion of said trials (See Mythic Adventures Playtest).
Venomous Kiss (Ex) If the Red Queen successfully grapples an opponent with her grab attack, she may make a bite attack (+25 [1d8+5 plus poison]) as a free action.
Poison (Ex) Bite—injury; save Fort DC 27, frequency 1/round for 6 rounds, effect 1d3 Con and 1d3 Wis and confusion 1 minute, cure 2 consecutive saves.
Spells The Red Queen casts arcane spells as a 17th-level sorcerer. She does not gain access to bloodlines or any other sorcerer abilities.

A demon of unimaginable power, the Red Queen is in a form that befits beautiful cruelty. She does not change form though many believe she has the ability. She is constantly seen as an elven woman with an elaborate red dress and a beautiful face she always caries a weapon of some sort on her and is quick to use it. The one thing she respects is her war with the White Kingdom. She has been known even to offer help, though it normally is detrimental in the end, to a new warrior of the White Kingdom.
