Any creature struck by one of its physical attacks must make a DC 33 Fortitude save or be paralyzed for 2d6 rounds. The save DC is Cha-based.
Retributive Curse (Su):
On any round in which the hex dragon is injured (taking hit point or ability damage), the dragon may curse one of the opponents who injured it as a free action. Choose one effect from the four below (Will DC 33 negates):
- Sickness - Target is sickened for 1d4 rounds
- Agony - Target is nauseated for 1d4 rounds

The dracolich gains a bonus to its hit points equal to its Charisma modifier x its Hit Dice.
