Rage (Ex)

An aeshma that takes 50% or more of its total hit points in damage in combat flies into a berserk rage on its next turn, swinging madly with its spear. A raging aeshma fights until either it or its opponent is dead. An enraged aeshma gains +4 Strength and –2 AC. The aeshma can end its rage voluntarily.
