This elven woman's allure is obfuscated by her ragged insectile wings and long, clawlike nails.

Ability Drain (Su)

A vendenopterix drains energy from a mortal she lures into an act of passion, such as a kiss. An unwilling victim must be grappled before the vendenopterix can use this ability. The vendenopterix's kiss inflicts 1 point of Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma drain (her choice). The kiss also has the effect of a suggestion spell, asking the victim to accept another act of passion from the vendenopterix. The target must succeed at a DC 15 Will save to negate the suggestion. The save DC is Charisma based.

Poison (Ex)

Claw-injury; save Fort DC 16; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d2 Dex; cure 2 consecutive saves. The save DC is Constitution-based, and includes a +2 racial bonus.

Swift Tracker (Ex)

A vendenopterix can move at her normal speed while using survival to follow tracks without taking the normal -5 penalty. She takes only a -10 penalty (instead of the normal -20 penalty) when moving up to twice her speed while tracking.
