TACTICS

Before Combat If he suspects intruders, a jagladine biomorph immediately consumes his mutagen, as well as several extracts: anticipate peril, arcane sight, bomber’s eye, fluid form, freedom of movement, haste, and stoneskin. He moves away from the door to assault intruders with bombs. His unique connection to his clone allows him to empathically sense his clone’s location, so he avoids dealing splash damage to his clone even when his clone is invisible. While he waits for combat to begin, he activates the barkskin extract in his system via delayed consumption.

During Combat A jagladine biomorph makes full attack actions with his bombs until a significant melee threat emerges, then attacks with natural weapons.

Morale A jagladine biomorph would prefer to survive to continue his work, but fears the specter of prosecution. If he can escape arrest by negotiating, he surrenders once reduced to 25 hp or less. If he feels the PCs will kill him or make him stand trial on an unfriendly planet, he fights to the death, trusting another clone elsewhere to take up his work.

Statistics A jagladine biomorph’s mutagen and magical enhancements increase his chances of escape and survival on the run. His statistics without extracts or mutagens are as follows:
