Dire Bats as Familiars
Dire bats 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 5th-level caster. Arcane casters with dire bat familiars gain a +3 bonus to Listen checks.
Dire Bats as Animal Companions
A dire bat may be trained using Handle Animal. A 4th-level druid, 6th-level outdoorsman, or 4th-level ranger may take a dire bat as an animal companion with an effective druid level modifier of -3.
