Small, strong, nimble, devoid of teeth and claws and carrying no weapons, these gray-skinned, wingless imps appear harmless. Wizards who have encountered them before know that is far from the truth. Like the gray riders, they came into being only in the last three decades, and are somehow intricately linked to the Siphoning.
Surges attack only spellcasters subject to the Siphoning, having absolutely no interest in anyone else. The fiend’s only form of attack is to latch onto a foe using the Grapple maneuver. It does not bite or claw, nor does it try to pin its prey. Instead, it forces the victim to cast a spell in the hope of inducing the Siphoning.
