Guardian Scroll

This innocuous-looking scroll flits about with serpentine grace, baring its razor-sharp edges.

Smothering Wrap (Ex)

When a guardian scroll grapples a creature, it entirely covers its opponent's head with an airtight grip. A creature grappled by the scroll cannot see, speak, or cast spells with verbal components, and it must hold its breath (see Suffocation). Creatures that don't speak or breathe through their heads aren't affected in this manner, nor are those blinded who can see through other means. Any attacks targeting a guardian scroll while it's grappling deal half damage to the scroll and the other half to the grappled creature.

Susceptible to Mind-Affecting Effects (Ex)

As an intelligent construct, a guardian scroll is subject to mind-affecting effects.
