Weeping Soul

Murdered without just cause, a weeping soul haunts the perpetrators of misery or those who anger it. It appears disheveled, with long, unkempt hair that obscures its twisted face. Often, a weeping soul will seek to confuse and frighten rather than physically harm a creature. When it does attack, it does so swiftly and savagely.

    Curse Binder. A weeping soul can be content to merely curse a creature that drew its ire. Due to the nearly permanent nature of these curses, the creature is likely to end in conflict with the weeping soul to remove the curse. It will also use its illusions to trick a creature to harm other creatures, especially those close to it, and especially if its target has done the weeping soul wrong.

    Frightening Combatant. When enraged, a weeping soul is as likely to crawl on its hands and knees as it is to run normally, and is equally fast either way. It can climb on walls and ceilings as if they were ground and can move through water without impediment. It will take its actions to focus its attacks on a single creature, seeking to kill it. If additional enemies remain, the weeping soul will curse one and retreat to the Ethereal Plane where it may lose interest in further attack or plot a series of hit and run encounters to kill one target each pass until its thirst for vengeance is quenched.
