Sci-Fi Sunday (Delak)

Hello and welcome to another Starfinder edition of monster blogging. Don't worry if you think you've seen something like this before. You probably have. At any rate, I hope you enjoy the entirely "original" delak.

[Image not displayed...for reasons]

This construct looks like a metal-studded metallic salt shaker. It spins around on an axis and shouts, “Stop! Do not flee!” while firing its raygun indiscriminately.

Languages Delak
Environment any

Organization solitary, squad (2–12), devastation (13–200)
Asphyxiation (Ex) A creature affected by a delak’s asphyxiation is considered grappled (as is the delak) and reduced to 0 Hit Points on a failed Fortitude save. If the delak succeeds on a grapple combat maneuver check to renew the grapple with its suction extension, the target must attempt the DC 28 Fortitude save again.
Bull Rush Susceptibility (Ex) The DC for the melee attack to perform a bull rush combat maneuver against a delak is its KAC + 4. A successful bull rush combat maneuver against a delak pushes it back 10 feet, plus 10 additional feet for every 5 by which the result of attack roll exceeds the DC. The creature performing the bull rush can instead knock the delak prone if it exceeds the DC by at least 5. Standing from prone requires a full action for a delak.
Delakantium (Ex) A delak is covered in nigh-impenetrable plating, which grants it hardness 40. At the GM’s discretion, a delak raygun bypasses this hardness, and the delak's immunity to fire, fully or to a certain degree (typically in increments of 10).
Disintegration (Ex) If a delak scores a critical hit with its delak raygun, the raygun’s damage is rolled four times. Additionally, the target must succeed at a DC 30 Fortitude save or be reduced to ash (this also occurs if the damage from the raygun reduces the target to 0 Hit Points).
Phrase of Fear (Ex) A delak has a particular phrase it shouts ominously as it attacks (examples include “Expunge with impunity!” and “Dismantle forcefully!”). Creatures that can hear the delak must succeed at a DC 28 Will save or become frightened. Creatures with a proper name equating to a profession (such as “Lawyer”) are immune to this effect; and allies of such creatures gain a +4 morale bonus on their Will saves.

A delak can possess other abilities at the GM’s discretion. It can also lose any of the above abilities at the GM’s discretion.
