   These strigae are wingless resembling a bipedal quasi-humanoid pangolin anteater but retain the same carnivorous blood diet like their small cousins the stirge.

They have two-feather-like antennae which they can detect detect blood in a 2 mile radius. They usually go for one victim until dead. However, they are very aggressive when they go without a medium-sized victim blood meal for a day and will desire two or three victims before being sated. The creature needs an 18 or better to latch on to drain blood and also gives the victim massive hug damage. After feasting on on 2 or 3 victims their torso balloons and AC worsens (1 or 2 respectively; note: not changing xp value).

These creatures are nocturnal although some wicked forces use them as night hunters and rumor has it that they've even bred a flying version (18" MC:C).
