Interlocutors are the self-proclaimed surgeon-sculptors among the kytons. Considering every bit of flesh as a canvas, interlocutors have replaced most of their own bodies with metal forged from shadowstuff.[1]

Appearance

The interlocutor's apotheosis from mortal into kyton involves the shedding of useless parts down to a glistening mass of veins, organs and flesh. These are then incorporated into bodies made of semi-living metal fashioned from raw shadowstuff from the Plane of Shadow. Some interlocutors retain a limb, but only in the same way one might retain ownership of a treasured piece of jewellery as a keepsake or memento. Some others retain nothing of their flesh save the brain, nerves and portions of their circulatory system.[1]

Interlocutors are 9 feet tall and weigh 800 pounds.[1]

Abilities

Interlocutors can heal the damage they inflict, even to the extent of restoring life to a newly-expired subject; this ability is perhaps more feared than their eagerness to cut flesh. A creature that succumbs to an interlocutor's unnerving gaze becomes convinced that it recognises some of its own body parts entangled in the interlocutor's.[1]

Ecology

Interlocutors consider their practice as more art than medical process. Each victim is a new chance to study the art of pain and sensation through horror-stricken eyes. To an interlocutor's victim, death is a mercy that is rarely offered.[1]
