Sense Demons at any time during the play (except when Demonic Symbiosis is active) you can attempt to listen for the echoes of the Abyss. This is a minor action during combat. Roll a d20 and add Perception to determine the results of this check. The detectability of a demon is based roughly on its size and power, but there are notable exceptions.

Demonic Symbiosis

Under the surface of every Vellen lurks a creature plucked from the depths of the Abyss. With a blinding torrent of wind, it appears by your side.

Daily – Standard Action

Effect: A Guecubu appears in any square adjacent to you to fight by your side. The Guecubu is always your level and scales with your stats. The Guecubu will remain until reduced to 0 HP, or until the end of the encounter. The Guecubu is not under your direct control, but manifests some of your inert desires. At any point while the Guecubu is active, you can attempt to give a single direct order at DC 15 (add highest stat + 1/2 level to roll)

The Vellen are a strange race to those who do not know them well. They are slim and slightly pale with eye colors of white, light-blue, and deep purple; although there is some variation, such as the majority of Runepriests who appear stockier, and Vellen who have abnormally tan skin for their kind. The Vellen all share in common a demon companion known as a Guecubu, a possessing demon that dwells in the minds of the Vellen. These Guecubu however have existed since a Vellen’s birth, a manifestation of the darkness within oneself that grows as the Vellen grows.
