Killer Shark

A subspecies of shark that lives in cold regions. It lives mostly on fish and aquatic mammals, but it also shows a much more pronounced fondness for human flesh than other sharks of its family. It is thought that killer sharks may have gotten their taste for manflesh from feasting on the victims of the many ships that capsize and wash ashore near the snowfields, as they so often do thanks to the strong currents in that area. No longer satisfied with the bloated corpses that occasionally wash into their territory, killer sharks now often hunt the living to satisfy their terrible hunger.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Hydrotwister (Su)

1/day, the killer shark releases a water drill towards his opponent within 30 ft. The target must make a Fortitude save DC 18 or be inflicted with both Deprotect and Deshell status effect for 1d4+1 rounds while taking 6d6 points of water damage. If they succeed the save, they negate the status effects. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 23).

Reteethe (Ex)

Whenever a killer shark confirms a critical hit, they gain +2 temporary strength bonus (max +6) for 4 rounds. This can be refreshed.
