Gillman ARG.png

Do you want you character to be amphibious, but don't want to play as a gross fishperson from the Black Lagoon? Then you should try Gillmen. In terms of appearances, they are literally just humans with a pair of gills slapped onto their neck, slightly webbed hands and feet, and black claw-like nails.

On Golarion, they are descendents of Azlanti humans who were fleshwarped by Aboleths to survive underwater after their homeland sank.

Can move in water without needing to attempt a Swim check, Swim is always a class skill.
Amphibious: Can breathe air and water equally well.

Servitor: All gillmen are unwitting slaves of the aboleths, and so even a gillman PC has some orders they are unconsciously compelled to follow. Additionally, their Enchantment Resistance is changed to a -2 penalty against Enchantment spells and effects used by aboleths.
