Hammer Strix

The hammer strix is a bizarre magical mutation between a boastrix and a hammerhead shark. The creature hunts in small flocks of four to ten, usually at night, as this nocturnal creatures hate light, which tends to drive them away. This is probably because they are vulnerable to fire. They fly and attack with a swoop as the first attack, which is a headbutt with a grapple. The headbutt may stun the victim on a “natural 20” and if the target fails a Resilience save against DC:8. If one misses, then it flies on and tries again later. However, if latching on, it will eviscerate the victim with continuous biting. Further, it has a tail that can be used like a lasso with a 10-foot range. Additionally, the head of the hammer strix works as a partial shield, which allows it to have an effective parry skill in close melee.
