She uses her haste potion before engaging. She always uses her Power Attack when she isn’t making a full attack, but prefers to make full attacks. She fights to the death.

Inherent Bonuses

In order to ensure his champion is as powerful as possible, her master has used wish spells to grant her a +5 inherent bonus to Strength and Dexterity and +4 inherent bonuses to Constitution and Wisdom.

Permanent Spells

She has the following permanent spell effects at CL 22nd (placed by her master): enlarge person and telepathic bond.

Runelord Champion (Ex)

She bears the rune of greed upon her left cheek, a physical manifestation of her role as her master's champion. She has pledged herself to his service, body and soul, and as long as her master lives (even while that life is confined inside of the rune well), she gains complete immunity to mind-affecting effects. In addition, she possesses SR 32 against spells from the school of transmutation. Unfortunately, being the champion of greed also brings with it an associated weakness against domineering runeforged weapons—she qualifies as a transmuter for that weapon’s bane effects, and critical hits made against her with such weapons automatically confirm.

Editor's note: She is CR 1 higher than normal because of her large inherent stat bonuses as well a equipment which was calculated as a PC rather than an NPC.
