SPECIAL ABILITIES

Breath Weapon (Su)

A kamadan can exhale a cone of gas that makes living creatures fall asleep for 5 minutes (Fortitude DC 15 negates). Slapping or wounding awakens a creature put to sleep by this attack, but normal noise does not. This is a sleep effect. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Snakes (Ex)

A kamadan's snakes attack simultaneously; this is always a secondary attack.
