These small winged eyes are created from the essence of a Master of Chaos. Discords act as the eyes and ears of their creators, with whom they remain in telepathic contact. Discords usually help their creators hunt down Lost Souls that have escaped the Plane of Limbo.

Discords are not much of a physical threat in combat, but they can quickly change the nature of the encounter with their Alter Reality ability and give themselves the opportunity to escape.

Alter Reality (Sp): At will and as a free action, a discord can alter the perceptions of its victims within a 3ft sphere and a range of up to 30ft. It cannot be used to directly affect a victim, but the discord can use this ability to shape its surroundings, and create nonmagical, nonliving objects.
The victim is allowed a Will save vs DC 13. If the victim fails the save, the altered reality becomes real (i.e. a discord is damaged and alters reality to appear as if it healed instantly; if the save fails the discord will really heal.) If attacked by a group, every creature must fail its save in order for it to turn into reality.

Flight (Su): A discord can cease or resume flight as a free action.

Telepathic Bond (Su): A discord is in constant mental contact with its master, and its master is aware of everything the discord is aware of. This range of the bond does not have a limit.

Skills: Discords have a +8 racial bonus to all Spot Checks. They have a +4 bonus to all Search checks.

Incorporeal Subtype: Can be harmed only by other incorporeal creatures, +1 or better magic weapons, or magic, with a 50% chance to ignore any damage from a corporeal source. Can pass through solid objects at will, and own attacks pass through armour. Always moves silently. Please see the 3.5E Monster Manual for additional information.

Undead Traits: Immune to mind-influencing effects, poison, sleep, paralysis, stunning, disease, death effects, necromantic effects, and any effect that requires a fortitude save unless it also works on objects. Not subject to critical hits, subdual damage, ability damage, ability drain, energy drain, or death from massive damage. It cannot be raised, and resurrection works only if it is willing. The creature has darkvision 60 ft. unless otherwise noted.
