A particularly vile breed of insidious infiltrators, Honeyed Corrupters use the wondrous powers of imagination, creativity, and drawing to make themselves appear as youths of their chosen species. Reinforcing their bodies further with their artistic talents they wade into combat with protector constructs biting, punching, and kicking like the small children they imitate.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Honeyed Corrupter gains proficiency in all simple weapons and saps.
Unarmed Strike (Ex): A Honeyed Corrupter gains Unarmed Strike as a monk of their class level. If they have monk levels their levels in each stack and they may add their Honeyed Corrupter level to their Monk level to determine the effectiveness of their Flurry of Blows ability.
Unarmored AC (Ex): A Honeyed Corrupter gains a monk's AC bonus as a monk of their Honeyed Corrupter level except using Charisma in place of Wisdom. If they have Monk levels they do not gain both AC bonuses but instead add their Honeyed Corrupter level to their Monk level to determine its bonus and may use Charisma or Wisdom whichever is higher at the moment.
Scribbled Mask (Su): A Honeyed Corrupter may use a paint brush, ink pen, or other drawing/painting tool to draw themselves a false face. Doing so functions as Disguise Self, but they suffer a -5 to their disguise check as the disguise looks as if it were drawn something that viewers find easy to overlook but not impossible not to, and any save DC to see through it is 10 + your Honeyed Corrupter level + your Charisma modifier. You may reduce your apparent height by up to 60% (instead of merely 1 foot), but if you reduce it by more than 1 foot you must look like a child of whatever species you are appearing as. While using this ability to appear as a child creatures of the same species which do not see through this illusion/disguise suffer a penalty to Sense Motive and Spot checks made against you equal to your Honeyed Corrupter level +3, a -2 to saves against mind-affecting effects you generate, and a -2 to attack rolls against you.
Art of Brush, Tome, or Blade: When you take your first level in Honeyed Corrupter choose Brush, Tome, or Blade. If you select Brush you may add your Honeyed Corrupter level to any Animator level you possess for the purposes of Animate Eidolon, Stock Animation, and Artistry. If you select Tome at each level other than 1st and 4th of Honeyed Corrupter you gain additional spells known and spells per day as well as Caster Level as if you had gained a level in one arcane spellcasting class you previously possessed. If you select Blade Honeyed Corrupter levels are considered to be an Initiating Prestige Class for you (granting full IL) and you learn a new maneuver at 1st, 3rd, and 5th level as well as gaining an additional maneuver readied at 2nd and 5th, and a new stance known at 4th level; you may select these maneuvers and stances from the Shadow Hand, Setting Sun, and White Raven disciplines.
Insidious Whispers (Su): A Honeyed Corrupter may speak in sweet whispers, the pleading, begging tones of a child. Beginning at 2nd level 1/day per class level a Honeyed Corrupter may attempt to offer a suggestion to a creature which believes you to be a child (even if of another species) as the spell (this remains a Supernatural ability, but CL is considered to be your Honeyed Corrupter level + 1/2 your level in other classes). The save DC against this ability is 10 + your honeyed corrupter level + your Charisma modifier.
Sugar Rush (Su): Beginning at 2nd level a Honeyed Corrupter may as a standard action eat a sugary treat and induce a state of sugar high causing their body to surge into overdrive. This functions identically to a Haste spell on the Honeyed Corrupter (and only the honeyed corrupter) with a caster level of their effective character level. If a Honeyed Corrupter uses this ability and has already used it within the last 10 minutes they become fatigued and if already fatigued exhausted; if they are immune to fatigue or otherwise would not become fatigued they instead simply cannot use this ability again for 10 minutes after that 2nd use. An exhausted Honeyed Corrupter may not use Sugar Rush.
Sweet Smile (Su): Beginning at 3rd level while a Honeyed Corrupter is disguised as a child they may, once per encounter, flash a creature that attempts to attack them (including with an area of effect) a sweet smile as an immediate action. The target must be able to see the Honeyed Corrupter and must not have seen through their disguise. If the target fails a Will save (DC 10 + honeyed corrupter level + Charisma modifier) they abort the attack and any spell, maneuver, ability used in it is wasted. This is a mind-affecting effect.
Fast Movement (Ex): Beginning at 3rd level a Honeyed Corrupter can move faster, either to escape from combat, hide behind their 'big brother', or get in there and kick someone's face. While not wearing armor and carrying no more than a light load, a Honeyed Corrupter gains a +10-ft increase to their land speed.
Honeyed Art: At 4th level a Honeyed Corrupter gains a bonus based upon their Art chosen at 1st level. If they selected Art of the Brush any eidolons they create can be made to look like bishonen or bishojo of a race which is the same size as they are causing any creature attracted to that race and gender to suffer a -2 penalty to attack rolls and AC against the eidolons; this is an illusion and can be seen through with a Will save as a figment (DC 10 + honeyed corrupter level + charisma modifier) if interacted with. If they select Art of the Tome they gain Spell Focus (Enchantment) and may add 3 enchantment spells of any level lower than the highest they may cast from the Sorcerer/Wizard spell list to their spells known and spell list; if they are a warlock or otherwise have neither spells known or a spell list they may instead select 3 enchantment spells with a level no higher than 1/2 their character level and may use each of them 1/day as a spell-like ability. If they selected Art of the Blade they gain Improved Feint as a bonus feat and may feint as a swift action against creatures which believe them to be children.
Greater Sugar Rush (Ex): Beginning at 5th level a Honeyed Corrupter may 1/day when they enter a Sugar Rush declare it a Greater Sugar Rush. During a Greater Sugar Rush a Honeyed Corrupter gains a bonus standard or move action each round. After a Greater Sugar Rush a Honeyed Corrupter is Exhausted for 1 minute and then Fatigued.
Moral Cavity (Su): A 5th level Honeyed Corrupter may lead anyone onto a path of chaos, evil, and gifs. By speaking to a creature (as a standard action) within 30-ft the Honeyed Corrupter may force that creature to make a Will save (DC 10 + Honeyed Corrupter level + Cha modifier) or have their alignment change to Chaotic Evil for 1 hour (as if with Morality Undone from Book of Vile Darkness, Fiendish Codex I, and Lords of Madness). A Honeyed Corrupter may use this ability 1/day per 8 character levels they possess.
