Temporal Filcher

A temporal filcher is a large, four-armed creature with the ability to rend a hole in time. The creature bounds on a single limb. It is a dangerous predator capable of separating its prey in a unique way.

Time Jumping. A temporal filcher can leap ahead in time, and it can drag another creature with it. This allows it to escape strong foes and isolate a weaker victim for an easier kill.

Grappler. A temporal filcher uses its arms to grapple creatures to shunt to the future when it can disable and then consume them in its massive maw.

Ambusher. It prefers to ambush its foes, using its powers to approach undetected before springing into battle to abscond with one target. Some temporal filchers will time hop where they expect a target to be to surprise their foes, but most temporal filchers lack the intellect for such ambushes.

Able Combatant. Despite having a single leg, a temporal filcher is an agile foe, able to quickly traverse terrain or to rapidly rush its foes to gore with its singular horn.

Time Hop (Recharge 6). The temporal filcher and up to one creature it grapples shift up to 7 minutes forward in time. To onlookers, the temporal filcher and its target simply vanish and then reappear in the exact same position after the chosen time has passed. For the temporal filcher and its target, no time passes at all. The target must succeed on a DC 13 Intelligence saving throw or be incapacitated until the end of its next turn from temporal disorientation. If the space is occupied when the temporal filcher reappears, the temporal filcher is moved to the nearest unoccupied space.
