SPECIAL ABILITIES

Critical Attack (Ex)

Once every 1d2 rounds as a standard action, the revenant can inflict more pain than normal. If they succeed at hitting with their bite attack, the damage is 1d6+7 x 1.5 for total damage.

Drain Touch (Su)

A revenant can absorb the blood from a target with a melee touch attack (+13). If it hits, the target take 4d6 points of shadow damage and the revenant is healed for that much. This spell also works against undead unlike most draining abilities. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Religion DC 23).

Sickening Breath (Su)

A revenant can breathe out a foul breath in a 15-ft.-cone. Creatures within the area of effect must make a Fortitude save (DC 16) or suffer a -2 penalty to Attack rolls and skill checks for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Religion DC 17).
