Mortal Hunter - Evil/Dead Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Although fiends prize the souls of mortals tempted to evil sometimes a mortal must simply be slain. Such a mortal often an obstacle to a powerful fiend's evil schemes finds herself the target of a mortal hunter.
Mortal hunters are fiends that specialize in killing mortals. For purposes of this prestige class, "mortal" is a term meaning any creature not of the outsider, undead, construct, or fey types. To practice their hunting skills, fiends capture mortals and drag them to their infernal realms where they are freed, then tracked and killed. A mortal hunter is not only good at tracking and killing mortals, but it learns to use mortal skins to form disguises so that it can infiltrate mortal societies and trick individuals, drawing them into traps.
If a mortal hunter has a character class, it is often ranger or fighter. Mortal hunters usually work alone, but sometimes have lesser fiends to use as shock troops or to help spring ambushes and traps. They occasionally use hounds - howlers, displacer beasts, hell hounds, or similar creatures - in their hunts.
