Sssurrssur, Ice Mephit Sor6 (CR 9)

Sssurrssur: Female ice mephit Sor 6; CR 12; Small outsider (air, cold); HD 3d8 plus 6d4; hp 28; Init +7; Spd 30 ft., fly 50 ft. (perfect); AC 23, touch 14, flat-footed 20; Atk +7 melee (1d3 plus 2 cold, 2 claws), or +8/+3 melee (1d6+1, +1 flaming light mace); SA breath weapon (cone of ice shards), spell-like abilities; SQ cold subtype, DR 5/+1, fast healing 2, outsider traits, summon mephit; AL NE; SV Fort +5, Ref +8, Will +8; Str 10, Dex 17, Con 10, Int 12, Wis 11, Cha 19.

Skills and Feats: Bluff +8, Concentration +8, Hide +12, Listen +6, Move Silently +9, Ride (winter wolf) +8, Spot +11; Combat Casting, Improved Initiative, Mounted Combat.

Breath Weapon (Su): Once every 1d4 rounds, Sssurrssur can breathe a 10-foot cone of ice shards. Each living creature within the area takes 1d4 points of damage (Reflex DC 11 half). Upon a failed save, the creature is tormented by frostbitten skin and frozen eyes unless it is immune to or protected from cold. These effects impose a -4 morale penalty to AC and a -2 morale penalty on attack rolls for 3 rounds.

Spell-Like Abilities: 1/hour -- magic missile (caster level 3rd); 1/day -- chill metal (caster level 6th).

Cold Subtype: Sssurrssur is immune to cold damage. She takes double damage from fire unless a saving throw for half damage is allowed, in which case she takes half damage on a success and double damage on a failure.

Fast Healing (Ex): Sssurrssur regains hit points at the rate of 2 per round. Fast healing does not restore hit points lost from starvation, thirst, or suffocation, and it does not allow Sssurrssur to regrow or reattach lost body parts.

Outsider Traits: Sssurrssur has darkvision (60-foot range). She cannot be raised or resurrected (though a wish or miracle spell can restore life).

Summon Mephit (Sp): Once per day, Sssurrssur can summon another ice mephit much as though casting a summon monster spell, but she has only a 25% chance of success. Roll d%: On a failure, no creature answers the summons. A mephit that has just been summoned cannot use its own summon ability for 1 hour.

Spells Known (6/7/6/4; save DC 14 + spell level; 10% chance of arcane spell failure): 0 -- arcane mark, dancing lights, detect magic, flare, light, ray of frost, read magic; 1st -- burning hands, charm person, magic missile, shield; 2nd -- invisibility, mirror image; 3rd -- fireball.
