Blood Drain (Su)

Once per day, a cave bat can drain the blood from a target within 30 feet. The target must make a Fortitude save (DC 13) or take 1d8 points of shadow damage and the cave bat is healed for that much. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 17).

Critical Attack (Ex)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, the cave bat can inflict more pain than normal. If they succeed at hitting with their bite attack, the damage is 1d6-1 x 1.5 for total damage.

Screech (Ex)

Once per day as a standard action, a cave bat can produce an ear-splitting screech that stuns non-bats in a 20-foot-radius burst. All creatures within the area must make a DC 10 Fortitude save or be staggered for 1d2 rounds. Other bats are immune to this effect. This is a sonic mind-affecting effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.
