Megalodon

A gigantic man-eating shark that has been alive for a very long time. They are the largest among all the sharks confirmed, and can easily swallow a human whole. They were believed to have gone extinct, but there have been giant shark sightings reported, and upon further review, it was determined that those were indeed megalodons. How they were able to survive and why they were suddenly starting to appear is unknown.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Hydrotwister (Su)

The megalodon releases a water drill towards his opponent within 30 ft. The target must make a Fortitude save DC 20 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: Arcana DC 23).

Reteethe (Ex)

Whenever a megalodon confirms a critical hit, gain +2 temporary strength bonus (max +8) for 4 rounds. This can be refreshed.
