SPECIAL ABILITIES

Cold (Su)

A maricoxi’s body generates intense cold, dealing 1d6 points of cold damage to any creature that contacts it with a natural attack or unarmed strike, or whenever it hits a foe with its bite, claws or rend attack.

Ice Half-Paraelemental Template Abilities (Su)

See table below for the half-paraelementals level based abilities. 1/day

Ice Shape (Su)

A maricoxi can shape ice and snow at will. This ability functions as stone shape, but only targeting ice and snow, not stone. One of their favorite attacks is an ice spear. A maricoxi’s caster level for this effect is equal to its Hit Dice.

Icewalking (Ex)

This ability works like the spider climb spell, but the surfaces the maricoxi climbs must be icy. The maricoxi can move across icy surfaces without penalty and does not need to make Acrobatics checks to run or charge on ice.

Martial Training (Ex)

Because of their high intelligence, maricoxi are proficient with light and medium armors, simple weapons, and one martial weapon of choice.

Snow Vision (Ex)

When young maricoxi’s learns to see perfectly well in snowy conditions. A maricoxi does not suffer any penalties to Perception checks while in the snow.

ECOLOGY

Environment cold mountains

Organization solitary, pair, or tribe (3–8)

Maricoxi is a strange combination of a Girallon, Yeti and an Ice-elemental (para-elemental). Instead of the evil tendencies of the Girallon, they lean more to Neutral that the common Yeti does, but a rare few descend to evil. Mysterious and rarely seen, the Maricoxi is a towering denizen of the loneliest and tallest mountain peaks. Those who dwell upon the lower reaches of such storied slopes whisper tales of “wild snowmen” who come down from the heights and raid livestock, only to leave barefoot tracks in the snow.

Although Maricoxi stories are accurate in their portrayals of fierce, stealthy, and immensely strong creatures.. They dwell in small tribes atop their distant mountains, where they are sheltered from contact with most other races. Those with violent or cruel natures are usually forced out of tribes to live lonely lives as exiles, and without the support of a tribe, such Maricoxi are often driven to raiding lowlander settlements, thus perpetuating the myth of the Maricoxi as a demon made flesh.

The source of such cruel madness can often be traced to a singular source—proximity to strange, eldritch dimensions. The Maricoxi’s mountain lairs rise high in places where the boundaries between this world and others rasp thin. It is unclear if the Maricoxi are invaders from these dimensions or Material Plane natives influenced by otherworldly realms, but it seems certain that whatever their origins, the Maricoxi are no friends to those who dwell beyond, and may even act as guardians against intrusions from such strange worlds into the Material Plane.
