Natural Invisibility (Su)

A quickling is invisible when motionless. It loses this invisibility and remains visible for 1 round in any round in which it takes any action other than a free action.

Poison Use (Ex)

A quickling is never at risk of poisoning itself when handling poison. They usually use kava leaf poison on their daggers.

Kava Leaf Poison
Type ingestion or injury; save DC 15; frequency 1/min. for 2 min.; effect sleep 1 hour; cure 1 save.

Supernatural Speed (Su)

A quickling moves with incredible speed. Save for when it remains motionless (at which point it is invisible), a quickling's shape blurs and shimmers with this speed, granting it concealment (20% miss chance). In addition, this ability grants the quickling evasion and uncanny dodge (as the rogue abilities of the same name).

Slow Susceptibility (Ex)

A quickling that succumbs to a slow effect loses its supernatural speed ability and is sickened.
