You change the subject into an otyugh if it fails its Fortitude save. The initial transformation physically changes the target into an otyugh (it becomes Large, gains the aberration type, and gains the physical features and abilities of a typical otyugh, but gains no extraordinary abilities). While in this form, though the target retains its own Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma, it also is filled with an insatiable urge to gorge itself on waste. If the target confronts anything which could be considered refuse, offal or the like before the curse is lifted, it must attempt a Will save. If this second save fails, the target loses its extraordinary, supernatural, and spell-like abilities, loses its ability to cast spells (if it had the ability), but retains its class and level (or HD), as well as all benefits deriving therefrom (such as base attack bonus, base save bonuses, and hit points). It retains any class features (other than spellcasting) that aren't extraordinary, supernatural, or spell-like abilities, but otherwise fully becomes an otyugh until the curse is lifted. It becomes an average, typical otyugh in all respects.
If the target fails to encounter any waste on which to gorge itself, the curse is lifted after 24 hours.
If you and the target are underground when you cast garbage dweller, the DCs of all the saves are increased by +2.
Garbage dweller can be removed by a successful casting of limited wish, miracle, or wish; neither break enchantment nor remove curse has any effect.
