Drowned Maiden

Surrounded by eerie silence, the frail woman whose visage was that of inconsolable sorrow only moments before, now glowers in rage. Her luxurious hair snaking through the water towards its victim.

Kiss (Ex)

If a drowned maiden successfully pins an opponent up to Large size that her tresses have successfully grappled, she can embrace it to deadly effect. On each round that the drowned maiden embraces a creature in this manner, she kisses it. Victims kissed by a drowned maiden take 1d4 Strength drain (Fort DC 20; Cha-based).

Tresses (Ex)

At will, a drowned maiden can cause her hair to extend or retract with great speed. Her hair is prehensile and capable of making attacks as a primary attack (break DC 25; AC 17, touch 15; 10 hp; DR 15/slashing). On a successful attack, the tresses grab a target, which the maiden then pulls into her embrace. Her hair can only grapple one target at a time, and during that time, the hair cannot attack another target. A drowned maiden does not gain the grappled condition while using her hair in this manner.
