Special Abilities

Agile Grappler (Ex) A mythic gylou does not gain the grappled condition if she grapples a foe.

Inescapable Grasp (Su) A creature grappled by a mythic gylou is treated as though it is affected by dimensional anchor. In addition, a mythic gylou can spend 1 point of its mythic power as a free action to suppress freedom of movement and magical bonuses to Escape Artist or on checks to escape a grapple on an opponent that she is grappling or has transferred to her tentacle cage.

Tentacle Cage (Su) A gylou can transfer one creature that she is grappling into her lower body’s nest of cage-like tentacles as a free action. This works like swallow whole with fast swallow, but the creature can be up to the same size as the gylou. The gylou’s tentacles are AC 20 and have 25 hp for the purpose of an entrapped creature cutting itself out. A gylou’s tentacles heal quickly, allowing her to use this ability 1 round after a creature cuts itself free.
