Tinangaj is a witchdoctor of the remote Mumbajumbato tribe. He dislikes any stranger who could disrupt his position as the right-hand man of the chief. He is extremely distrustful of all strangers, causing him to turn the chief's heart against them. Time and again, he will oppose the stranger's sweet words. Should the chief be swayed, he will again argue against the strangers once they leave. Should the strangers prove powerful enough to notice, he will steal a bit of their spellcaster's gear and make a voodoo doll. He will then sap the spellcaster's spell-dependent attribute with his curses. He will lift his voodoo curse if the stranger confesses that Tinangaj is the superior spellcaster and admits defeat before his powerful and unopposable magic.
Tinangaj gets his magic from the evil spirits that speak to him in infernal.
If Tinangaj is encountered in a social context, he is CR 8, as he will prove a challenging social villain. If Tinangaj is only encountered in combat, he is CR 4.
