Improved grab (Ex): With a successful bite attack, a bloodworm may attempt a grapple check (+14) to pull an opponent under the surface of the river and keep her there.
Blood drain (Ex): A successful bite means the bloodworm latches on and causes 1 temporary Constitution damage every round until killed or until 12 points are drained.
Exposure: A bloodworm suffers 1 damage per round spent out of the River of Blood.
A bloodworm attacks by biting its victim, latching on and draining blood until sated or killed. It instinctively tries to pull its prey beneath the surface of the river, wrapping its long, slimy body about the victim to keep her from surfacing.
