Eyeless (Ex)

A swaithe has no eyes, but can sense its immediate surroundings (within 60 feet) as well as a human can see.

Hexes (Su)

A swaithe has the cackle, evil eye, and misfortune hexes of a 5th-level witch.

Witchcraft (Su)

A swaithe can use spell completion and spell trigger items as if it were a 5th-level witch.

Editor's Note
The slumber hex mentioned in the description does not appear in the swaithe's list of hexes. We're assuming this was a last minute change in the latter which failed to be reflected in the former.
