Monster Manual III
Psionics (Sp): At will - command (DC 15), message, silence (self only; dismiss as a free action); 1/day - greater command (DC 17). Effective caster level 9th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.
Sneak Attack (Ex): A witchknife captain can make a sneak attack like a rogue, dealing an extra 4d6 points of damage whenever a foe is denied its Dexterity bonus or when the witchknife is flanking.
Witchknife captains gain advantages from patience and planning. They prefer to ambush foes and attack from hiding.
