Draining Touch (Su) A ghost that hits a living target with its incorporeal touch attack drains 1d4 points from any one ability score it selects. On each such successful attack, the ghost heals 5 points of damage to itself. Against ethereal opponents, it adds its Strength modifier to attack rolls only. Against non-ethereal opponents, it adds its Dexterity modifier to attack rolls only.

Malevolence (Su) Once per round, Albert can merge its body with a creature on the Material Plane. This ability is similar to a magic jar spell (caster level 10th), except that it does not require a receptacle. To use this ability, the ghost must be manifested and it must try move into the target’s space; this does not provoke attacks of opportunity. The target can resist the attack with a successful Will save (DC 16). A creature that successfully saves is immune to that same ghost’s malevolence for 24 hours, and the ghost cannot enter the target’s space. If the save fails, the ghost vanishes into the target’s body.

Manifestation (Su) When a ghost manifests, it becomes visible but incorporeal on the Material Plane. A manifested ghost can be harmed by magic weapons, or spells, with a 50% chance to ignore any damage from a corporeal source. A manifested ghost can pass through solid objects at will, and its own attacks pass through armour. A manifested ghost can strike with its touch attack or with a ghost touch.

1 Includes 5 point power attack.


Last member of the noble Alteresine family line before it name was stolen by unfaithful wife. Albert Alteresine is cursed to unlife guarding a portal to the Abyss. The portal hidden under the families summerhouse is keyed to the ‘Alteresine’ bloodline. Albert is entombed alongside the portal and keeps watch on it in case any of his ‘family’ seek to open it again.
