A malevolent playmate looks like a ghostly version of a child. It is often mistaken for some sort of undead. When it first reaches the material plane a Malevolent playmate's first objective is to find a child and make that child its "friend". It usually picks an abused or lonely child longing for some companionship. It will try to start the "friendship" by offering the child a magical toy created with its ability. It will ask the child not to tell anyone else about its existence and that is a secret. It will play with and comfort the child with all the earnesty of a real friend and tell the child that it is their best friend, but it is lying. In actuality the malevolent playmate views the child only as a tool to work through and to achieve its own evil goals. The playmate waits until its new "friend" is asleep and then possesses them. Using the poor child's body it goes about the town searching for a victim. When an appropriate target is found it uses its powers to weaken them and then finishes them of with its death knell, using its hypnotic powers to keep anyone nearby from seeing. It will later deny to the child that it has any knowledge of last nights terrible events. It then goes on, playing and frequently giving gifts to the child and keeping low until it can use its death knell again. It uses its high bluff check to avoid suspicion as long as it can, however eventually the charade ends. When this happens the Malevolent playmate leaves and searches for another small town to terrorize. Malevolent playmates reproduce assexually, a month after they have advanced to child terror they develope an egg, which they nurture by storing life force from death knell in. Once the egg has received three death knells worth of life force, the playmate implants it in a dying person. The egg drains one hit point per round until the person is dead, and then developes in the corpse for one year before hatching into a fiendling. Who suspects a child, let alone that childs imaginary friend?
