Tonya, Petty Goddess of Children's Teeth, appears as a 15 foot tall tongue embedded with the missing teeth of thousands of children arranged scale-like across her frontside. She has no features beside her red pulsing body and the teeth, and she communicates via telepathy and other psionic means.

Tonya was banished to the material plane by Ywehbobbobhewy, Lord of Waters, King of Mirrors, Patriarch of the Most Profound for attempting to steal the teeth of his favored daughter, Curdle, the Petty Goddess of Blind Milk Maids. She now spends her time plotting ways to get back into Ywehbobbobhewy's good graces. She believes the gifts of money she deigns to leave beneath children's sleeping heads will bring her back into Ywehbobbobhewy's fold. She is mistaken, as metal coins are worthless trinkets to the minor corpus gods who make-up Ywehbobbobhewy's court.

Tonya despises the common misconception that fey and/or hobgoblins are responsible for retrieving teeth from beneath children's pillows. In fact it is Her Toothiness's wormy minions (which are minature, toothless versions of Herself [No attack, AC 10, 5 hp each]) which wriggle beneath the sheets of sleeping children to snatch away the enamaled prizes she treasures.

It is rumored she is building a temple to Ywehbobbobhewy with all the milk teeth her minions gather.

Tonya herself rarely retrieves teeth from beneath a child's head. She will only do so for nobles and clerical orders.

Encountering Humans
Tonya and her minions are invisible to children whose natural age is 12 or younger. Between the ages of 13 and 16, teenagers can sense their presence but only see wriggly shadows. At 17 or older, adults can see Tonya and her minions' true form and must roll on the Human Encounters Reaction Table (1d6)

1    Disgusted. The human is disgusted and vomits immediately for 1d4 rounds, and suffers a -2 to hit and to all damage dealt during this time.
2    Repulsed. The human is nauseated and feels faint for 1d4 rounds, and suffers a -1 to hit and to all damage dealt during this time.
3-4    Indifferent. The human has no reaction and is able to converse with Tonya.
5    Intrigued. The human is curious about Tonya and/or her minions and Tonya will treat the human favorably with no attempts at deceit.
6    Charmed. The human is Charmed by Tonya and will do her bidding for 1d6 rounds. Her bidding usually has to do with extracting teeth from fellow humans. Additionally, the human will believe anything Tonya says during the charmed period.

Tonya favors humans and will act friendly to them regardless of their reaction to her.


Encountering Fey-like Creatures and Demihumans
Fey-like creatures and demihumans will immediately recognize Tonya's true form (and her minions as well). Because of the false rumors about tooth retrival, Tonya has a particular hatred for these creatures (especially fairies and hobgoblins) and will attack them on sight. She will even attempt to strangle their children as they sleep if offered the opportunity.

Tonya attacks with a whip-like lash from the tip of her tongue-like body, doing 1d8 lashing damage. Alternately, if a victim is within 9 feet, she can grab her victim in a toothy squeeze, inflicting 1d12 crushing damage and 1d6 biting damage from the embedded teeth.
