Demon, Shadow

Only this shadowy bat-winged demon's teeth and claws have any sense of physicality to them—the rest is lost in darkness.

Sprint (Ex)

Once per minute, a shadow demon increase its fly speed to 240 feet for 1 round.

Shadow Blend (Su)

During any conditions other than bright light, a shadow demon can disappear into the shadows as a move-equivalent action, effectively becoming invisible. Artificial illumination or light spells of 2nd level or lower do not negate this ability.

Sunlight Powerlessness (Ex)

A shadow demon is utterly powerless in bright light or natural sunlight and flees from it. A shadow demon caught in such light cannot attack and can take only a single move or standard action. A shadow demon that is possessing a creature using magic jar is not harmed by sunlight, but if it is struck by a sunbeam or sunburst spell while possessing a creature, the shadow demon is driven out of its host automatically.
