Razor Teeth (Ex)

Piranha breed klaven troops are an alchemical hybrid of locathahs, klaven, and a vicious piscine predator known for its sharp teeth and ravenous nature. Its troop attack deals half damage to creatures within 5 feet of the swarm. In addition, creatures within the piranha troop’s space take 1d6 points of bleed damage each round. In addition, the swarming, gnawing mass of klaven is considered difficult terrain, imposing a -5 penalty on Acrobatics and Swim checks in the area. The blood churned into the water also obscures vision, resulting in a 20% miss chance on attacks made within or through the troop; this miss chance does not apply to the troop.
