Each fire bird can breathe fire from its beak in a cone out to 10 feet. Creatures caught in the cone require a Reflex save (DC 11) for half damage. The first time a fire bird uses its breath weapon during battle, it deals 2d8 damage. Afterward, its breath weapon deals 2d6 points of damage unless it waits at least 4 rounds to use it again. The save is Constitution-based.
Each time a fire bird is exposed to a poison, paralysis, sleep, or stunning effect, it has a 25% chance to avoid it. In addition, there is a 25% chance that a sneak attack or critical hit deals no extra damage.
Fire birds can fly with perfect maneuverability when flying through fire. They can also walk through flames as though via the air walk spell.
