This now empty spot in space would not hide the starsoul’s bright light, and the memories of starlight would converge upon it even without the ritual and rekindle the sun. Second, and perhaps even more important, without the starsoul to feed upon, the nightcrawler would cease to exist. It owes its very existence to the sun’s death, and draws much of its dark sustenance from the void left by the continued absence of the starsoul’s light and life. At the core’s heart, where the nightcrawler makes its lair and hides the starsoul, it has collected a number of magical tools to help it protect its treasure.
Energy Drain (Su): Living creatures inside a nightcrawler’s gizzard gain one negative level each round. Removing a negative level requires a Fortitude save (DC 26). The save DC is Charisma based. For each such negative level bestowed, the nightcrawler gains 5 temporary hit points. Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a nightcrawler must hit with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can try to swallow the opponent in the following round.
Although the starsoul is delicate, the nightcrawler wishes no harm to come to it for two reasons. The first is that the broken object would disintegrate but soon reform in the exact center of the plane, where the sun once burned—the piece of dark rock that was the sun’s core was blasted from that position when the star cooled and shattered. This now empty spot in space would not hide the starsoul’s bright light, and the memories of starlight would converge upon it even without the ritual and rekindle the sun.
