Change Shape [one-action] (concentrate, polymorph, primal, transmutation) As onidoshi, but into a fire giant.

Impaling Push [two-actions] The fire yai attempts a katana Strike. If it hits, the fire yai attempts an Athletics check against the target creature’s Fortitude DC.

Critical Success The fire yai Strides or Flies up to half its Speed in any direction. The struck creature takes 4d6 persistent bleed damage and is pushed along with the yai an equal distance. The creature is grabbed until the yai’s next turn or until the yai makes a katana Strike.

Success As critical success, but the creature takes 2d6 persistent bleed damage.

Failure The struck creature is pushed back 5 feet.

Critical Failure The struck creature is unaffected.

Smoke Form [two-actions] (concentrate, primal, transmutation) The fire yai transforms into a cloud of smoke and then Flies up to its fly speed. This movement does not trigger reactions, and the fire yai can move through spaces occupied by other creatures. The fire yai returns to its physical form after this move, and must end the movement in a space in which it can fit. All creatures in spaces through which the fire yai moves with Smoke Form must succeed at a DC 34 Fortitude save or become sickened 3. The fire yai cannot use Smoke Form for 1d4 rounds.


Fire yai take the form of fire giants. Like fire giants, fire yai are shrewd and militaristic and have an incredible appetite for the thrill of war. While they engage in battle to conquer and control others, fire yai also love the thrill of war, fighting for the sheer joy of it. Presenting a fire yai with a true challenge in combat can potentially earn their mercy and an offer to join and serve at their side. Fire yai’s third eyes shoot forth burning missiles of fire.
