Kythons enjoy tearing their prey to shreds, though they are intelligent enough to make good use of weapons. Most kythons have a chance to possess a special weapon.

Both the bite and the tail sting of the broodling are poisonous.

Poison (Ex): A broodling delivers its poison (Fort DC 12) with each successful sting or bite attack. The initial and secondary damage is the same (1d6 points of Constitution damage).

Kython Traits: All kythons are eyeless but have blindsight to a range of 60 feet. They are all immune to acid and cold and possess fire resistance 20 and electricity resistance 20.
