This creature is one of the most formidable forms of basilisk known. They are accustomed to living in the abyss and hunting demons for sport. Its hide is purple and its large milky eyes shine with a malevolent green glow.


A hellspawn basilisk relies on its gaze attack, biting only when opponents come within reach. Though it has eight legs, its slow metabolism renders it relatively sluggish, so it does not expend energy unnecessarily. Unlike it’s mundane kin a basilisk has the option of teleporting into an ideal ambush spot if it’s opponent’s flee so seldom permits it’s meals to escape. These creatures tend to spend most of their time lying in wait for prey, which includes abyssal animals, lost souls, demons, and unwary adventurers.
An abyssal greater basilisk’s natural weapons are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
Petrifying Gaze (Su)
Turn to stone permanently, range 30 feet; Fortitude DC 23 negates. The save DC is Charisma-based.
Smite Good (Su) 5/day
Five times per day, an abyssal greater basilisk can make a normal melee attack to deal an extra 36 points of damage against a good foe. The benefit of the extra smiting feat is already included in this ability description.
Spellilike ability (Sp)
Twice per day as a spell-like ability the Basilisk may employ dimension door.
*The basilisk’s dull coloration and its ability to remain motionless for long periods of time grant it a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks in natural settings.
