Special Abilities

Freeing Touch (Su) As a standard action, a mythic cayhound can use freedom of movement as a spell-like ability on another creature. This suppresses its freedom of movement until the end of its next turn. By expending one use of mythic power, it can ignore the suppression of its own ability.

Reverberating Critical (Su) If a mythic cayhound scores a critical hit with its bite, it deals an additional 1d8 points of sonic damage. Additionally, the target must succeed at a DC 16 Fortitude save or become shaken for 1d6 rounds. If the mythic cayhound expends one use of mythic power when delivering a critical hit with its bite, it deals an additional 1d8 points of sonic damage, the save DC is increased by the mythic cayhound’s rank, and duration of the shaken effect is doubled. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Righteous Bite (Su) A cayhound’s bite is treated as magical for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

Thunderous Bark (Su) Once every 1d6 rounds, a cayhound can bark with the concussive force of a thunderbolt. Every creature within a 15-foot cone-shaped burst must succeed at a DC 14 Fortitude saving throw or take 3d8 points of sonic damage and be knocked prone. A successful saving throw reduces this damage by half and negates being knocked prone. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Unbound (Su) Mythic cayhounds move as if under a continuous freedom of movement spell and can use dimension door at will. They are immune to dimensional anchor and dimensional lock, but are affected by mythic dimensional lock.
