Steal Essence (Su): Any intelligent creature slain by a caller in darkness is mentally absorbed into the monster's consciousness within 1d4 rounds (the physical body of the victim remains intact). A caller can also absorb the essence of a creature whose ability score in any mental attribute (Int, Wis, or Cha) it has reduced to 0 through psionic combat; it need not first eliminate the downed creature's Constitution. Stealing a being's essence grants the caller 12 temporary hit points.
Psionics (Sp): At will- clairaudience/clairvoyance, detect psionics, fatal attraction, mass concussion, and suggestion. These abilities are as the powers manifested by an 18th-level psion.
Attack/Defense Modes (Sp): At will- all/all.
Undead: Immune to mind-influencing effects, poison, sleep, paralysis, stunning, and disease. Not subject to critical hits, subdual damage, ability damage (except by psionic combat), energy drain, or death from massive damage.
Incorporeal: Can be harmed only by other incorporeal creatures, +1 or better psionic weapons, or psionics, with a 50% chance to ignore any damage from a corporeal source. Can pass through solid objects at will, and own attacks pass through armor. Always moves silently.
Unnatural Aura (Su): Both wild and domesticated animals can sense the unnatural presence of a caller in darkness at a distance of 30 feet. They will not willingly approach nearer than that and panic if forced to do so; they remain panicked as long as they are within that range.
Daylight Powerlessness (Ex): Callers in darkness are utterly powerless in natural sunlight (not merely a daylight spell) and flee from it. A caller caught in sunlight cannot attack and can take only partial actions.
