• "ghost weapon" +3 (as per weapon)
• float through +1 (1d6 cold)
MV 40 fly
Act 1d20 + 1d16
750-some years ago, an armorer was attacked from behind and killed. His spirit was cast into an insect instead of rising to the beyond...
Since that time, the spirit has slowly clawed it's way up the chain of life forms until it can now inhabit a simple humanoid, such as gorblins, zorbits, or — rarely — even some humans. However, over the years its former intelligence has dwindled, leaving only a low, feral consciousness.
Thus when the host creature is destroyed, the spirit rises immediately to lash out at whomever has disturbed them.
The spirit's possession power primarily makes it immune to detection and attack, only being forced out upon the death of the living vehicle. In this era, the subject of this power gets a Will Save at a DC 16 minus their number of HD to block the possession. Upon a successful possession, the spirit can only subtly influence the creature's actions, though this influence may increase over time...

More than a beast, but less than a god, the Dracodemon wanders the world seeking the only sustenance it can survive on: blood. In it's long lifetime, the Dracodemon has more than once served a powerful lord or regent as a vizier or protector.
The Dracodemon has a large, humanoid body, and its limbs are completely metallic. It is always covered in vermin, such as rats, voles, etc. These creatures are of an ordinary sort, living upon the body of the Dracodemon. New such creatures can occasionally be seen scurrying to the Dracodemon and climbing onto its body and nesting in the folds of its clothes.
With a successful claw attack, the Dracodemon can grab its victim (DC 14 Str check to escape). The Dracodemon can then either do 1d3 damage freely per round to the target or fly with them in its grip and drop them from whatever height the Dracodemon can attain. It can choose to let go at any time.
Once per hour, the Dracodemon can read the surface thoughts of any target in its line of sight.
In a vampiric way, the Dracodeomn recovers 2 hp for every HD of a victim once their blood is consumed. It can only recover hit points in this way, or by very powerful Chaotic magic.
