Special Abilities:
Infrared Vision:

Ch'Doth see in the infrared portion of the spectrum, seeing the heat generated by the prey and their surroundings. This allows them to see without penalties in the dark, and in light smoke or haze, and gives a +2 to PER rolls in certain situations.

Heat Preference:
Ch'Doth are native to a very warm planet, and are only found in areas with similar heat. They suffer a -1D STR penalty when operating in areas of intense cold.

Climbing Claws:
Ch'Doth have short claws on each digit to aid in climbing. They add a +1D to Climbing, but are not suitable for combat.

Story Factors:

Ch'Doth cannot speak Basic, though with practice they can imitate various phrases. They communicate by a series of clicks and growls.

Honor of the Hunt:
Ch'Doth are committed to the hunt, and follow a special code when killing prey and taking trophies. They will not kill prey that is not able to defend itself with either weaponry or special abilities, and they will not knowingly kill pregnant females. They only take trophies from prey they feel has been worth the effort. The type of trophy varies between Ch'Doth and kills, they may skin their prey, take skulls and spinal columns, or even the prey's weaponry.

Secrecy of the Hunt:
Ch'Doth know that the hunt depends on secrecy. Rather than be captured or killed a Predator will trigger the destruct device in its wrist computer, detonating a small tactical nuclear device and destroying all trace of the Predator.
