TACTICS

Before Combat This creature tears free a portion of the torso’s liver and eats it before combat begins if he has a chance, gaining the benefits of fast healing 10 for the fight to come.

During Combat If faced with enemies that include humans in their ranks, this creature’s terrible hunger pulls him to them that, causing him to ignore all non-human targets. He’s able to hold back his ravenous urgings enough to resist taking the time to feast on a slain human if there remain other enemies to defeat, but only barely.

Morale He fights until destroyed.
