Cascade Flu (Ex)

Disease—bite; Fortitude DC 9, onset one day, damage psionic cascade (every time an afflicted character manifests a power, she must make a DC 16 concentration check; on a failed check, a psionic cascade is triggered [see Psionic Maladies]).

The save DC is Constitution-based.

Hide Mind (Su)

A brain mole cannot be identified as psionic by divination spells or clairsentience powers.

Power Conversion (Su)

When a brain mole drains a power point by means of its power leech power, it immediately heals 1 hit point. If it is already at full normal hit points, it instead gains psionic sustenance sufficient to supply its need for nourishment for 24 hours.

ECOLOGY

Environment temperate forest
Organization Nest (3-5)
Treasure none

Burrowing animals that feed off psionic energy, brain moles are not easily distinguished from normal moles.

If a brain mole cannot find psionic energy, they typically survive by eating insects.

Brain moles prefer psionic energy, and will use their detect psionics ability to seek out prey. Once the target is within reach, they will use their power leech ability, staying hidden as long as possible. When threatened, a brain mole will use aversion to try to keep opponents from attacking, and resort to mind thrust if forced into combat. Their bite ability is only used as a last resort.
