Deremoles are a rare breed of furry, black creatures that burrow deep underground and thrive on magical energy. They are nearsighted but have sharp ears and sensitive noses. They live off the residual magical energy of nearby creatures, often making their homes near duergar settlements.

Deremoles are weak combatants, and try to avoid confrontation if possible. If cornered, they use their mind blast ability and try to flee.

Mind Blast (Su): A deremole's mind blast causes 1d4+1 temporary Intelligence damage to on creature within 10 feet. A successful DC 12 Will save negates the attack. The deremole may use this ability three times per day. The save DC is Constitution based.

Blink Dogs as Familiars
Blink dogs can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. To do so, the character must take the Improved Familiar feat and be at least a 3rd-level caster. Arcane casters with deremole familiars gain the Improved Initiative feat for free as a bonus feat.
