Mind Blast (Su)
Squidrakens are able to project a 60 foot of psychic static towards a single target. The target is stunned for 1d4 rounds and takes 8d6 points of non-elemental damage. A successful Will save (DC 20) reduces the damage by half and negates the status effect. This ability is used as a standard action is considered a mind-affecting effect and the saving throw DC is Charisma-based. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 25).
Thought Tentacle (Ex)
If a squidraken has someone grappled and successfully deals damage to that target, instead of the normal physical damage, it can choose to deal 1d4+2 points of Intelligence damage instead. This ability only works on creatures with an actual brain. Thus, it does not work on constructs, elementals, plants, oozes or undead in addition to creatures that either do not have an actual brain or the brain is not physically inside the grappled creature.
