Vengeful geists appear as pale corpses with long black hair and black pupils, wearing the tattered remnants of the garments they wore in life. They are beings consumed with hate and malice, ususualy resulting when a sentient creature dies in the throes of great anger or sorrow.
Vengeful geists understand any language they spoke in life (usually Common), but cannot speak.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a vengeful geist must hit with its touch attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold.
Lifequench (Su): A vengeful geist that begins its turn pinning an opponent engulfs that opponent with its hair, forcing them to make a DC 35 will save to avoid being slain instantly. An opponent that makes the save instead gains 2d4 negative levels (as the energy drain spell).
Energy Drain: Living creatures hit by a vengeful geist's touch attack gain two negative levels. The DC is 35 for the fortitude save to remove a negative level. The save DC is Charisma-based. For each such negative level bestowed, the vengeful geist gains 5 temporary hit points, and for every two such levels, it gains a +1 circumstance bonus on grapple checks against that opponent for 1 minute.
Curse Mark (Su): As a free action, a vengeful geist can afflict a creature within 20 ft. with a curse mark. The vengeful geist always the general location of a marked creature, provided it is within 50 miles of the marked creature, and may scry on a marked creature twice per day, with the marked creature recieving a -15 penalty on its Will save against the scrying.
