Special Abilities
Breath Weapon (Ex) A huhhoad can use its breath weapon as a standard action every 1d4 rounds.
Searing Aura (Su) At will, as a free action, a huhhoad can surround itself with an aura of blistering heat in a 10-foot radius. Any creature in the area is affected as if by a heat metal spell, except that the damage applies to all creatures, even those not wearing metal armor. Creatures actually wearing metal armor take double damage. Once the effect reaches the level of “searing”, it does not lessen until the creature leaves the searing aura, at which time the effect lessens to “hot” and then “warm” over 2 rounds, as the spell.

Huhhoad are the most violent of all ogdoad, reveling indestruction for its own sake. On the Material Plane, they tend to live near underwater volcanoes, sometimes swimming within the very magma. Huhhoad stand around 12 feet tall and weigh approximately 1,250 pounds.

Huhhoad are true pyromaniacs — they love to see things burn, whether objects, structures, or creatures. They tend to use their spell-like abilities only after their breath weapon, searing aura, and physical attacks have proven relatively ineffective.
