SPECIAL ABILITIES

Ashen Blight (Su)

5/day, a hidon creates ash to erupt around it’s foes. All enemies within 30 feet of the hidon suffer the effects of Blindga. (Will save DC 26) Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Religion DC 21).

Bone Slash (Ex)

Once every 1d3+1 rounds as a swift action, a hidon can choose to focus it’s energy and attack with it’s sting and claw. The damage increases it’s sting to 3d6+20/18-20 and it’s claw to 2d8+20/16-20 damage each and it inflicts it during that round.

Crypt Dust (Su)

3/day, a hidon throws dust upon it’s foe within 15 feet away to inflict zombie status effect for 10 rounds. A hidon must make a range touch attack (+13), if successful, the opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 26) to negate the zombie affect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Religion DC 25).

Sharpened Claw (Ex)

Hidon has a really sharp claw that increases it’s claw’s critical range by 2.
