Grizzat Swarm

Grizzat Swarm CR 5

Thousands of thumb-sized crimson and black mottled brains on wings dance in the air as a bee swarm dances. Everything it passes over is stripped of edible matter by their ravenous mouths.

Cling (Ex)

If a creature leaves a grizzat swarm’s square, the swarm takes 1d6 damage to reflect the loss of its numbers as the crawling pests cling tenaciously to the victim. A creature with constituent grizzats clinging to him takes 1d4 damage at the end of his turn each round. As a full action, he can remove the grizzats with a DC 13 Reflex save. High wind or any amount of damage from an area effect destroys all clinging grizzats.

Consume (Ex)

A grizzat swarm can rapidly consume any creature it swarms over. Against helpless or nauseated targets, a grizzat swarm attack deals 2d6+5 damage plus 1d4 bleed damage if the target is not already affected.


Environment tropical forests
Organization solitary, pair, nesting burst (3–6 swarms), or march (7–16 swarms)

Constantly striving to spawn and spread, leaving behind a swath of devastation on plant life and the creatures encountering them.
