SPECIAL ABILITIES

Attach (Ex)

Using a sucker-like organ on its head, a space remora can attach itself (as the universal monster ability) to a Huge or larger creature or object. A space remora does not need to make checks to maintain this grapple and cannot make grapple checks for additional effects (such as damage or pinning).

Each attached remora reduces a creature or vehicle’s speed by 10 ft. (to a minimum 5 ft.) and increases the duration of space travel by +1 hour or day (depending on distance).

ECOLOGY

Environment any vacuum
Organization solitary, pair, or nest (3-6)

Like the fish they resemble, space remoras are predators and scavengers in the depths of space. They are often found among shoals of asteroids and planetary rings, which serve as their breeding grounds. Although capable of interstellar flight, space remoras prefer to travel attached to larger creatures or space vessels, feeding off smaller prey and jetsam the host won’t miss. In this way, the space remoras have spread far and wide. Though known to attack lone space travelers when desperate, space remoras are more dangerous during boom times, when schools of these creatures attach themselves to spacegoing vessels, slowing them down and endangering all aboard.
