The Kyohinial: Predator of the Sky

The kyohinial is a vicious avian predator that dominates the skies in the mountainous region of Kyoh. The kyohinial is becoming a sought after pet through the rest of the galaxy, because of its colorful feathers and attractive appearance. Although it may seem harmless in a pet shop, it may have killed a few who tried to capture it. The kyohinial always attacks in groups of at least three. It is a vicious predator, but doesn’t often test itself by attacking large groups of its prey. It usually attacks only if it has singled out its prey, or if something is threatening the hatchlings.

Species Traits
Terrifying Presence-When the kyohinial first attacks, it may make an Intimidate check at DC (15 + opponents level). If the check is passed, the opponent must make a Will Save (DC 15). If the opponent fails, it can make either only a move or attack action next round. If the opponent fails by 10 or more, he is cowering, and remains cowering until he passes a Will Save (DC 10).
