Name: S'thili Thrall
S'thili thralls are humanoid shells with all of their internal organs eaten away by the S'thili parasite. In this state, a host loses all comprehension and 'dies', though their soul remains in the body, unable to escape. Once in this state, the S'thili Matron (the only intelligent form of S'thili) controls the host body's every movement. The S'thili are able to perfectly mimic all actions performed by its host in its past life and retains all knowledge possessed by said host. S'thili Thralls look almost exactly like their host did in life, and dress accordingly to maintain a facade of life. The only difference in appearence is what seems to be a beer belly in males and a two-month pregnancy in women. These abnormalities are caused by S'thili larva spawning within their abdomens.
Creating a S'thili Thrall
"S'thilan" is an acquired template that can be added to any corporeal creature (other than an undead) that has organs, all of which being located within the creature's body (referred to hereafter as the base creature).
Size and Type: The creature's type does not change, (though it is technically unliving, the organisms within the humanoid allow its body to maintain life-signs) nor does its size. Both remain the same, utterly unchanged by the S'thili Infection.
Hit Dice: Hit dice of the creature do not change, but they gain a +4 to their health for each level they possess.
Speed: Speed doesn't change at all, it remains as the host was during life.
Armor Class: As any other character; add +2 natural armor.
Base Attack: As the character had during life, +2.
Attacks: S'thili Thralls possess superhuman strength, due to their muscles being replaced by S'thili Parasites, possessing much more potential strength than an organism's muscular system. Due to this, the S'thili gain extra Strength and can directly damage targets with unarmed attacks. The damage of their unarmed strikes depends on their size.
Special Attacks: S'thili Thralls retain all of the special attacks their host possessed during life.
Special Qualities: A S'thili Thrall maintains all special qualities of their host, except those concerning the five senses. The S'thili do not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel through their host. They do possess Blindsight and Blindsense, to compensate for their lack of sight and hearing, respectively.
Saves: The Thrall retains all save bonuses from its previous life, and gains +5 to all fort saves.
Abilities: S'thili Thralls' Strength increases by +4, all else remains the same as the host had during life.
Skills: Skills are the same as the host had during life.
Feats: Same as host during life.
Alignment: Always that of the S'thili Matron. (See: S'thili Matron)
