    "Obedience leads to true freedom."

    The Tlatoani are the leaders of the Jagre, and often lead gangs of Orcs, Ogres and Trolls on raids for slaves.

    Any Jagre that has undergone the Ritual of Merging will do.

    Race: Jagre
    Skills: Climb 4 ranks, Intimidate 4 ranks
    Feats: Ritual of Merging, Improved Bond

    Class Skills
    The Tlatoani's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Knowledge (geography) (Int), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Spellcraft (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Use Rope (Dex).

    Weapon Proficiencies: A Tlatoani gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies

    The Ritual of Merging (Su): At 1st Level you gain a +2 Deflection Bonus to AC in Displacer Beast Form.

    At 4th Level you also now gain your Resistance to Ranged Attacks Bonus when not in Displacer Beast Form.

    At 7th Level may instead turn into a Displacer Beast Pack Lord once you also have at least 18 HD.

    Hishna Magic (Sp): At Levels 2, 5 and 8 you can choose one spell from the Hishna Magic spell list. You may cast that spell 1/day as a Spell-Like Ability. At 2nd Level you can choose any spell of 3rd Level or less. At 5th Level you can choose any spell of 4th Level or less, and at 8th Level you can choose any spell of 5th Level or less.

    Leadership: At third Level your Leadership Score is your ECL plus your Charisma modifier. All your Cohorts/followers must be Orcs. At 6th Level your Cohort can be an Ogre if your leadership Score is 9 or higher. At 9th Level your Cohort can be a Troll if your leadership Score is 14 or higher.

    Beast Lord: At 10th Level you get a +10 Bonus on your leadership Score.

    You are a born leader of monsters. Cruelty is like a drug to you.
    Combat: You prefer mixing it up in melee combat despite your ranged defenses. You like the feel of blood on your hands.
    Advancement: Your advancement is determined solely by the Viperhand.
    Resources: You have whatever gifts Zaltec bestows on you, and whatever you can take as plunder.

    "Any excuse will serve a tyrant."
    The world lives in horror of you cult and it's anthropophagus tendencies.
    Daily Life: You manage much of the Viperhand's daily affairs, especially raids and warfare.
    Organizations: All Tlatoani belong to Zaltec's cult.

    NPC Reaction
    You are regarded with the fear usually shown to monsters.

    This assumes the PC is a leader of sorts in an evil cult, and might be best left for npc's.
    Adaptation: This is meant for an all Evil campaign set in Maztica, but shouldn't be hard to adapt.
    Encounters: The Tlatoani are rarely found outside the Valley on Nexal.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 15: The PC's are hired by a sketchy looking Orc to guard his Lords property, which turns out to be human. Can they rescue the slaves without being found out?
