During Combat An erahthi slayer prefers to begin combat from a distance, using their thundergun in either lethal or nonlethal capacity depending on the slayer’s intent. Once their enemies close in (or the slayer has expended their ammunition) they will engage opponents in melee.
Morale Erahthi slayers retreat when outnumbered, unless defending their home, in which case they fight to the death.

An erahthi slayer is a versatile opponent, able to move between ranged and melee combat with ease. Most do not possess the force of presence to communicate with plants, as many of their kind can, and feel less of an innate connection to nature. This is, perhaps, why they are so quick to adapt to alien technologies like aethertech.
