Temporal Filcher

The single-horned creature before you stands 8 feet tall and is balanced on a single leg, a leg which appears to end in a prehensile foot. Four elongated, multi-jointed arms extend outward from its body, its clawed hands reaching toward you.

Time Filch (Su)

If a temporal filcher successfully grapples a Large or smaller creature, it latches onto the opponent’s body and shifts 7 minutes forward in time as a free action. Observers (if any) see the temporal filcher and its prey disappear in a shimmer, then reappear 7 minutes later in exactly the orientation and condition they left. For the filcher and its prey, no time passes at all. The victim must succeed on a Will save (DC 16) or be dazed for 1 round from temporal disorientation. The ability is otherwise identical to time hop manifested by an 8th-level manifester.

Grab (Ex)

To use this ability, a temporal filcher must hit a creature of Large size or smaller with two claw attacks. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity.

If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and uses its time filch ability.
