Aligned Strike Latana’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons she wields, are treated as chaotic-aligned and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Energy Drain (Su) Latana drains energy from a mortal she lures into some act of passion, or by simply planting a kiss on the victim. If the target is not willing to be kissed, Latana must start a grapple, which provokes an attack of opportunity. Latana’s kiss or embrace bestows one negative level. The kiss also has the effect of a suggestion spell, asking the victim to accept another kiss from Latana. The victim must succeed on a DC 21 Will save to negate the effect of the suggestion. The DC is 21 for the Fortitude save to remove a negative level. These save DCs are Charisma-based.
Change Shape (Su) Latana can assume the form of any Small or Medium humanoid.
Summon Tanar’ri (Sp) Once per day, Latana can attempt to summon 1 vrock with a 30% chance of success. This ability is the equivalent of a 3rd-level spell.
Tongues (Su) Latana has a permanent tongues ability (as the spell, caster level 12th). She usually uses verbal communication with mortals.
Latana has a +8 racial bonus on Listen and Spot checks.
*While using her change shape ability, Latana gains a +10 circumstance bonus on Disguise checks.
See Monster Manual, page 47.
Latana’s preferred guise was that of a woman with leather armor and wild, spiky hair. Her natural form was like that of any succubus: beautiful, with bat-like wings and glowing eyes.
Latana worked with Fearson for her own pleasure, as well as to advance herself within Graz’zt’s court.
Latana appears in “The Recruiters,” from Well of Worlds.
