Attack of Opportunity [reaction]

Dual Mind [reaction] Trigger The adhukait fails a saving throw against a mental effect; Effect The adhukait shunts the effect into one of their minds, rendering them temporarily insensible. They change their result to a success, but one of their bodies hangs limply until the end of their next turn. During this time, the adhukait is clumsy 2; takes a –10-foot circumstance penalty to their Speed; and can’t use Dual Mind, Dual Opportunity, or Dance of Destruction.

Dual Opportunity The adhukait gains a second reaction each round they can use only to make an Attack of Opportunity.

Melee [one-action] claw +18 (agile), Damage 1d6+9 slashing and 1d4 evil

Dance of Destruction [one-action] Requirements The adhukait’s last action was a Strike that dealt damage; Effect The adhukait Strides up to 10 feet and Strikes.

About

Most creatures native to the Outer Planes dissipate upon their destruction, and their essence is absorbed by their home plane. Asuras, however, have a fate akin to reincarnation: a slain asura usually returns in a lesser form, eager to gain retribution upon their killer. Occasionally, exemplary asuras return in more powerful forms.

Twice as disciplined as a monk and twice as deadly as a warrior, an adhukait is the ultimate perversion of duality, two spiked asura warriors impaled together to form one ferocious, incredibly efficient killing machine. An adhukait’s two heads, two hearts, and two minds rarely work as one—except to maim or kill.

Even adhukaits’ origin contains not one but two stories. Some believe they were created when two godlike brigands attempted to raid a celestial hall and had their bodies crushed together and thrown down from the heavens. Another legend states two asura twins once challenged a great warrior to duel them in turn. When they attacked him together, he was so enraged he slammed one into the other so hard that they were fused together from that day forth.

Adhukaits are among the most elite asura warriors, making up for what they lack in spellcraft with sheer viciousness and single-minded pursuit of inflicting pain.
