Brain Mole

A brain mole appears much like a normal mole. While it can maintain a similar diet to a normal mole, a brain mole prefers to eat psionic energy, and will attempt to ambush creatures with power points to sustain itself when able.

Burrowing Vermin. A brain mole will never allow itself to be encountered above ground, instead preferring to only burrow close enough to the surface to target its prey with its powers. It will lie in wait, using its powers to survey its surroundings. Once it has located potential prey, it will use power leech to feed before retreating. If threatened, it will target the strongest threat with aversion to drive it away from the area. It will then retreat, possibly targeting a creature a power before burrowing to safety, reactivating the power to discourage pursuit.
