During Combat Vortch always uses Power Attack—these modifiers are included in his stats above. Although he can pinpoint targets with his deathwatch ability, he still suffers a 50% miss chance for blindness (a disadvantage his Blind-Fight feat helps lessen).
Morale Vortch fights to the death as long as he can sense living creatures in range of his deathwatch ability; otherwise, he staggers back to this room, relying upon his memories to retrace his route.

SQ armor training 1, fiery death (2d6, DC 13)
Vortch is both blind and deaf, but his ability to use deathwatch helps to lessen the penalties he takes from this condition. These penalties are included as appropriate in the stats above, including a –4 penalty to initiative, a –4 penalty on opposed Perception checks, a –4 penalty on Strength– and Dexterity-based skill checks, and his reduced speed (if he wants to move at 30 ft., he must make a DC 10 Acrobatics check or fall prone).
Fiery Aura (Ex)
Creatures adjacent to it take 1d6 points of fire damage at the start of their turn. Anyone striking it with an unarmed strike or natural attack takes 1d6 points of fire damage.
It explodes into a burst of flame when it dies. Anyone adjacent when it is destroyed takes 2d6 points of fire damage. A Reflex save (DC 13) halves this damage.
