SPECIAL ABILITIES

Break the Silence (Ex)

A skreevar can use its breath weapon to create a dispel magic effect to end magical silence effects, magically created constructs of solid sound, or similar sonic effects. Its effective caster level is equal to its CR (typically 14th), and it gains a +2 racial bonus on the dispel check.

Breath Weapon (Ex)

A creature that fails its initial Reflex save must succeed at an additional DC 22 Fortitude save or become stunned for 1 round.

Silence Vulnerability (Ex)

In an area of silence, a skreevar loses its blindsight. It also cannot use its breath weapon to damage opponents, but it can use its break the silence ability.

ECOLOGY

Environment any underground
Organization solitary, pair, or cadre (3–12)

Spawned by a demonic bat creature, skreevars retain a measure of their Abyssal inheritance, but have largely eschewed the inherent evil of their origins. Outside of their family groups, however, they are still unpredictable. Despite their chaotic natures, skreevars have keen analytical minds and have created several technologically advanced items adapted to their needs. This also allowed them to spread to the stars beyond their home world, a rocky planet with a virtually uninhabitable surface and filled with tunnels allowing skreevars and other creatures to travel from point to point.

Skreevars hire themselves out as mercenaries and command extraordinary prices for their services. Even though they use sound as a major component of their attacks, and a subsonic hum surrounds them constantly, they are capable of quietly infiltrating difficult-to-breach locations.

Perhaps ashamed of their demonic heritage, they typically refuse to take on missions with overtly evil goals, such as murdering innocents. A skreevar will perform an assassination if its employer can prove the target is worthy of death because of heinous acts or evil ideologies. While skreevars are motivated by money, they cannot be swayed by offers of more money to ignore their missions.

Skreevars stand just over 5 feet in height and weigh roughly 150 pounds. Their lifespans are similar to humans.
