Breath Weapon [two-actions] (evocation, divine) The leukodaemon exhales a cloud of corpse-bloated, biting black flies in a 20-foot cone. Creatures within the cone take 4d8 piercing damage (DC 28 basic Reflex save). A creature that fails the save becomes sickened 1 (or sickened 2 on a critical failure).

Daemonic Pestilence (disease) The leukodaemon can telepathically communicate with the afflicted creature at any distance on the same plane; Saving Throw DC 28 Fortitude; Stage 1 carrier (1 day); Stage 2 drained 1 (1 day); Stage 3 drained 2 (1 day); Stage 4 drained 2 (1 day); Stage 5 drained 3 (1 week); Stage 6 dead

Quicken Pestilence [one-action] (divine, manipulate, necromancy) The leukodaemon coaxes a disease into full bloom. It chooses a target in its aura of pestilence that’s currently affected by a disease. That creature must attempt a Fortitude save against the disease as if the interval for the disease’s current stage had passed.


These skull-headed, vulture-winged daemons are harbingers of pestilence and servants of their patron Horseman, Apollyon. Manifestations of evil souls who perished from disease in life, leukodaemons work tirelessly to spread disease across all the worlds of the multiverse. More than any other daemon, leukodaemons cooperate with each other and those who conjure them to mortal worlds to spread sickness and plague, eschewing personal glory for end results.
