Change Shape (Su): The Cheshire Cat can assume the form of any Small or Medium humanoid, animal or magical beast.

Dweller Upon The Crossroads (Ex): Locked inside the form of the Cheshire Cat is a nexus of portals and intertwining interdimensional pathways. The Cat has mastered these crossroads to an unprecedented degree. This confers the following abilities.
The Cheshire Cat can greater teleport as a swift action (caster level 15th).

The Cheshire Cat is considered incorporeal (as the subtype) and invisible if it chooses to appear as so. A creature must succeed on a DC 25 Will save or be fascinated (as the status effect). The Cat may manifest corporeality and visibility as a standard action every round. The save-DC is Charisma-based.

Gleefully Mad (Ex): The Cheshire Cat has secured and sequestered his thoughts behind a unique abjuration. A creature must succeed on three consecutive DC 25 Will saves to pierce the fog surrounding the Cat's thoughts or be affected by hideous laughter.
The Cat is, for all intents and purposes, under a continual mindblank spell.

Grin (Ex): The Cheshire Cat is under the constant effects of an Enthrall spell. This is a non-magical ability and cannot be dispelled. Every 1d3 rounds, the Cat can also make a suggestion; the Cat needn't verbalise the intent of the suggestion, creatures must however see the Cat grin.
3/day, the Cheshire Cat can effect mass charm monster through his grin.

Skills: The Cheshire Cat has a +8 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, Jump, Move Silently, and Balance checks.

Spell-Like Abilities: At will - air walk, dream, fog cloud, Greater Scrying, invisibility, locate creature, mislead.

3/day - false vision, haste, mind fog, mirage arcana, permanent image, programmed image, project image, slow.

Caster level 15th. The save-DCs are Charisma-based.
