Breath Weapon (Su): Once every 1d4 rounds, Sssurrssur can breathe a 10-foot cone of ice shards. Each living creature within the area takes 1d4 points of damage (Reflex DC 11 half). Upon a failed save, the creature is tormented by frostbitten skin and frozen eyes unless it is immune to or protected from cold. These effects impose a -4 morale penalty to AC and a -2 morale penalty on attack rolls for 3 rounds.

Fast Healing (Ex): Sssurrssur regains hit points at the rate of 2 per round. Fast healing does not restore hit points lost from starvation, thirst, or suffocation, and it does not allow Sssurrssur to regrow or reattach lost body parts.

Outsider Traits: Sssurrssur has darkvision (60-foot range). She cannot be raised or resurrected (though a wish or miracle spell can restore life).

Summon Mephit (Sp): Once per day, Sssurrssur can summon another ice mephit much as though casting a summon monster spell, but she has only a 25% chance of success.
