Sad eyes look at you, seeming to convey a profound sense of understanding and empathy. The proud bearing of the humanoid creature indicates it is fully aware of what it is capable.

Prizing understanding over physical prowess, the enlightened mentat is smaller than many of the other psionic entities that inhabit the outer planes, including the other varieties of mentats. Enlightened mentats stand around 2 and a half feet tall and weigh under 30 pounds. The only type of mentat bald by nature, the enlightened mentat has a light skin tone and typically has pale blue, almost grey eyes.

Enlightened mentats speak Celestial, Draconic, Infernal, and Abyssal. In addition, they are treated as being always under the effect of a tongues spell.


Fighting is something most enlightened mentats are loath to enter. The destruction that combat often causes is the antithesis to the understanding and teaching that this variety of mentat seeks to exemplify. If forced into combat, an enlightened mentat will seek to use its manifesting ability to disengage and seek out a peaceful solution, or it will simply withdraw altogether.

Psi-like abilities: At will – call to mind; 1/day – read thoughts. Manifester level 3rd. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

Psionics: Enlightened mentats can manifest powers as psions of a level equal to their hit dice. As exemplars of enlightenment, enlightened mentats have access to all devotion lists.
