Poison (Ex)

Bite—injury; save Fort DC 24; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d4 Strength; cure 2 consecutive saves.

Poison Cloud (Ex)

Once per day as a swift action, a syricta can exhale a poisonous cloud from its nostrils in a 20-foot radius centered on it. Any creature within the cloud or entering it must immediately succeed at a DC 24 Fortitude save or be affected by the syricta's poison. The cloud dissipates at the beginning of the syricta's next turn.

Serpentfolk Pawn (Ex)

A syricta's immunity to mind-affecting effects doesn't apply against serpentfolk or any effects originating from a serpentfolk (for example, a mind fog cast by a serpentfolk would bypass the syricta's immunity to mind-affecting effects).

Snake Overrun (Ex)

The numerous snake heads and tails of a syricta's lower torso deal 6d6 points of bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage to creatures when it succeeds on an overrun combat maneuver against them. Creatures that take damage from a syricta's snake overrun are also subjected to the syricta's poison.
