Some miles north of Ordoquoy is a shallow bay, surrounded by hills. The locals say this place is cursed, and do not hunt or fish there; its forests are dark and windswept, and its waters cold and grey.
The Helaxa lives here. Nobody knows where she came from, or what she is; all they know is her insatiable need. Hideously ugly, with gaunt limbs and pallid grey flesh, she pursues human males with singular intent, and their seed gives her the young which she breeds.
The Helaxa is only encountered at night, and is never surprised. She will attempt to charm the most charismatic male in any group she comes across with her powerful gaze, an ability she can use 3 times per day (characters of 4th level or above may save versus magic at -2 to resist). Charmed men will be desparate to have sex with her, and will follow her single-mindedly: after congress, she kills and eats these unfortunates. Females and unattractive men are ignored or slain if they pose an obstacle.
After being impregnated, the Helaxa gives birth to a son after d6 weeks. Her sons are small, grotesque bipedal things more animal than human, and the Helaxa makes no attempt to raise them. They roam about the local area eating what they can, generally attacking anything living on sight, and often die of exposure or starvation.
