Bite (standard, at-will)

Reach 3; +24 vs AC; 2d8+8 damage, and a Medium or smaller target is grabbed (until escape). A deathless hunger cannot make bite attacks while grabbing a creature, but it can use clamping jaws.

Clamping Jaws (standard, at-will)

If a deathless hunger begins its turn with a target grabbed in its jaws, it makes an attack against the grabbed creature; +24 vs AC; 2d8+8 damage. Miss: Half damage.

Swallow (standard, at-will) Acid

The deathless hunger attempts to swallow a bloodied Medium or smaller creature it is grabbing; +22 vs Fortitude; on a hit, the target is swallowed and restrained (no saving throw) and takes 10 damage plus 10 acid damage on subsequent rounds at the start of the deathless hunger’s turn. The swallowed creature can make melee basic attacks only, and only with one-handed or natural weapons. If the deathless hunger is destroyed, any creature trapped in its gullet can escape as a move action, ending that action in a square formerly occupied by the deathless hunger.

Blood Gout (standard, recharge when the deathless hunger swallows a creature) Acid

Area burst 2 within 10; +22 vs Reflex; 2d6+7 acid damage, and the target is knocked prone and takes a -2 penalty to all defenses and ongoing 10 acid damage (save ends both).
