Kraidyl

Kraidyl CR 1/2

A hulking creature surges out of the darkness, the immense bulk of its shoulders leading to massive arms that end in taloned hands, or down to the creature’s powerful legs. Worst of all is its elongated jaw, filled with sharp fangs that glisten with the same predatory lethality that its red eyes bear.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Positive Energy Vulnerability (Ex)

Kraidyl have vulnerability to positive energy. When subjected to an attack that deals positive energy damage, a kraidyl takes half again as much damage (+50%) and if a save against the spell or effect is allowed, the kraidyl suffers a –4 penalty to the save.

Negative Energy Affinity: Kraidyl are alive but the profane energies coursing through their bodies make them react differently to negative and positive energy. Positive energy harms a kraidyl, while negative energy heals it.

ECOLOGY

Environment underground
Organization solitary, pair, or hunting pack (4–16)
Treasure standard (falchion, hide armor, javelin [3])

These primordial deadly hunters are naturally inclined to lurk through the endless caves of the underworld in a near constant search for prey (most of which dies between their lethal jaws). They are as primitive as they are dangerous and aggressively protect their territories with an insatiable bloodlust, engaging in profane rituals to dark entities using the remains of the many creatures they’ve slain.

Kraidyl are nearly 7 ft. tall and weigh around 260 pounds.
