Black Glaive (Su): Any glaive that Nashyim wields gains the icy burst ability, dealing +1d6 points of bonus cold damage on a successful hit (or +2d10 points on a successful critical hit). He can also make normal melee attacks with his glaive to deliver blight touch attacks.
Blight Touch (Su): With a successful melee touch attack, Nashyim delivers Talona's blight. He can do this twice per day. Talona's blight is a supernatural disease delivered by spell (Fort save DC 20, incubation 1d6 days; damage 1d4 Con and 1d4 Cha). Unlike normal diseases, Talona's blight continues until the victim reaches 0 Con (and dies), or 0 Cha (and becomes a blightspawned creature if the template can be applied), or receives a remove disease or similar magic.
Blightblood (Ex): Nashyim is immune to all diseases, even magical ones. Blightspawned creatures won't attack him.
Blightmind (Su): Once per day as a standard action, Nashyim can establish a mental link with a blightspawned creature within 60 feet and dominate it (as dominate monster). Will save DC 20 to negate. The link lasts 6 minutes and has a range of up to one mile. During the link, Nashyim can concentrate and receive sensory input from the creature or issue it instructions.
Illmaster: Any animal companions gain the blightspawn template.
Plant Traits: Nashyim is immune to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, stunning, polymorphing, and mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects). He is not subject to critical hits. Low-light vision.
Sustenance (Ex): Nashyim requires only 2 hours of sleep per day to gain the benefits of 8 hours of sleep. Nashyim requires only one-quarter the food and water a human requires since he absorbs nutrients from his environment.

Reach Spell (from Defenders of the Faith): You can cast a spell that normally has a range of "touch" at any distance up to 30 feet. The spell effectively becomes a ray, so you must succeed at a ranged touch attack to bestow the spell upon the recipient. A reach spell uses up a slot two levels higher than the spell's actual level.
