Vilstraks are peaceful creatures that avoid combat if possible. They do take great joy and pride in robbing those that invade their territory. A favored tactic of the vilstrak is to hide inside the wall of a dungeon corridor and spring out when prey passes nearby.

Merge with Earth (Su)

A vilstrak can merge with earth or stone at will as a standard action. This ability is similar to a meld into stone spell (CL 12th), except that a vilstrak can see what goes on outside and it can remain merged as long as it desires.
