Special Attacks: Psionics
Organization: Solitary or pair
Psionics (Sp): At will - meld into stone; 3/day - passwall, wall of stone; 1/day - flesh to stone (DC 18), stone sphere (DC 17). Caster level 6th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.
Freeze (Ex): A lith can hold itself so still that it appears to be a statue. An observer must succeed on a DC 20 Spot check to notice that the lith is really alive.
Skills: A lith receives a +8 racial bonus on Hide checks when concealed against a background of worked stone.
Liths prefer to use their psionic abilities with surprise, but they can defend themselves physically if they must. A lith uses its psionics to retreat into the nearby stone if it fears it is on the losing end of a conflict.
