Fiend of Possession - Evil/Dead Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
A fiend that rends with claws or smites with a blazing sword is a fearsome foe indeed, but a fiend of possession is harrowing on a far deeper level. Able to abandon its physical form and inhabit or even control a mortal body, a fiend of possession is an invasive presence that taints the very soul, corrupting from within.
As the name suggests, only fiends can enter the fiend of possession prestige class. Some can qualify without any levels in other classes at all, while others gain levels, often as sorcerers or bards, before joining the prestige class. Many fiend clerics approach the fiend of possession prestige class as part of their spiritual agenda, viewing the possession of mortals as something of a religious obligation. Fiends with fighter levels tend to prefer a more direct approach no conflict on the Material Plane, and rarely show interest in becoming fiends of possession.
Fiends of possession generally work alone. Some use their power simply to wreak as much chaos and destruction as they can, experiencing the carnage and debauchery much more intensely because of the nature of mortal flesh. Others use their mortal hosts as part of a much more insidious plot of corruption. In any case, their victims never feel clean or safe again.
