TACTICS

Before Combat If she has the opportunity, a jagladine psisurgeon consumes her mutagen and then applies poison to her weapons, using as many preparatory extracts as time allows.

Morale A jagladine psi-surgeon is primarily interested in research and may attempt to bargain for its life with secrets or the release of prisoners or hostages, but if pressed by foes she fights to the death.
