The chavonth is a powerful six-legged hunting cat with fur of blue, gray, and black arranged in a hexagonal pattern. Their eyes are a deep crimson, and reflect light at night from the shadows. Chavonths have an unsettling presence, and are quite treacherous predators.
Chavonths pounce onto their prey and tear into their victims with their teeth and claws.
Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a chavonth must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.
Pounce (Ex): If a chavonth charges a foe, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.
Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +13 melee, damage 1d8+4.
Unsettling Presence (Ex): The chavonth's very presence is unsettling to foes. It takes effect automatically when the chavonth performs some sort of dramatic action (such as charging, attacking, or snarling). Opponents within 30 feet who witness the action may become shaken for 5d6 rounds. This ability affects only opponents with fewer Hit Dice or levels than the chavonth has. An affected opponent can resist the effects with a successful Will save (DC 12). An opponent that succeeds on the saving throw is immune to that same chavonth's unsettling presence for 24 hours. The Save DC is based on the chavonth's Charisma.
Skills: Chavonths have a +4 racial bonus on Balance, Hide, and Move Silently checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus improves to +8.
