Electric nekomusume are nekomusume that inhabit the elemental plane of electricity. They are, on average, just under 5 feet tall & weigh 90 pounds. Their skin & fur/hair usually comes in shades of either yellow or blue.
Since electric nekomusume are very quick, but generally frail, they usually stay out of melee combat if they can, shooting at their enemies from a distance. If they go into melee combat, electric nekomusume use weapons that are finesseable.
Static (Ex): An electric nekomusume's body is flowing with intense amounts of electricity, so its unarmed attacks deal 1 extra point of electricity damage. Its metallic weapons also conduct this electricity.
Pounce: If a Nekomusume charges a foe, it can make a full attack.
The electric nekomusume warrior presented here had the following ability scores before racial adjustments: Str 11, Dex 13, Con 12, Int 10, Wis 9, Cha 8.

An electric creature retains all the special attacks of the base creature, plus gains the following special attack:
