Combat

Like a living dire lion, an effigy attacks by leaping on its opponent, clawing and biting.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, an effigy dire lion must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can rake.

Pounce (Ex): If a dire lion charges, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.

Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +15 melee, damage 1d6+9.
