Kylie the Tout is featured in Uncaged: Faces of Sigil, as well as Doors to the Unknown and some other Planescape adventures. I’ve used her extensively in my own games as an easy way to indicate to players when a message/invitation/etc. is really important: if the message is delivered by some no-name tout or factioneer, sure they’ll read it but they may save it for later. If whomever sent the message went to the trouble and expense of having Kylie deliver it, they’d better believe it’s important!

Dib, on the other hand, was never seen outside of Uncaged. I usually ignore his existence.

For details on Kylie’s plans and personality, along with her tactics in combat, see her entry in Uncaged: Faces of Sigil.

Induce Anger (Su) Six times per day, an ethyk can target a single creature within 100 feet and attempt to increase its anger and hostility. The victim must succeed on a DC 13 Will save or have its attitude changed to Unfriendly (unless already Unfriendly or Hostile) toward a random creature (other than the ethyk) within 100 feet. This ability persists for 3d4 rounds. An affected creature must attempt an additional DC 13 Will save each round the ability persists, or attempt to attack the target of its hostility. The affected creature will attack anyone who attempts to restrain it or otherwise prevent it from attacking the subject of its ire. If the victim cannot attack its target, it hurls verbal assaults that are so belligerent that the target’s attitude toward the victim will turn hostile. This is a mind-affecting, compulsion effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.
