Other AbilitiesIn addition to its impressive camouflage, hearing, smelling, and vision, the Cloaker's tough skin and flexible chitinous plates provides full immunity to natural fire and heat, and has limited immunity against acid, electricity, and magical fire, and takes half damage from them. Their enhanced senses also allows them to easily detect what is and what is not there, rendering all but the most detailed and powerful illusions useless against them. The Cloaker is also quite susceptible to starvation and seems to lose half of its strength after a week of not feeding. The great wings also provide a strong armored back when folded and not in use, as well as allowing it to fly when needed. The Cloaker carries on its ancestors debilitating paralytic bite. The saliva of both the female and male Cloakers contain a powerful paralytic agent that significantly slows down and can even paralyze the victim within moments, leaving the prey to helplessly watch as they are eaten alive. In addition to this, the Queen Cloakers have the ability to Persuade and influence the victims through an unknown means, often having them walk back to their lair or lead others into an ambush.
"The only weaknesses that I've seen so far, is that it doesn't fare well against the cold, starvation greatly hinders its fighting skills, and its inability to produce more of its species on its own. I wish that there was more, but that's all that we have figured out so far."
