Swarm and singular creature at the same time, emberwings resemble a flock of butterflies of burning fire-coloured crystal, glowing like the embers they are named for. Fluttering aimlessly -- or so they appear -- the emberwings will "attack" anything that seems like a likely target, seeking to share their warmth. Though not inherently hostile, an emberwings can be deadly to anything around it simply by existing.

The razor-sharp, burning blades of the swarm's wings inflict 1-8 hit points of damage per attack, as the emberwings swarm engulfs a body. Every three rounds, once agitated, it may focus a blast of glittering flame through the wings of its swarm, creating a bolt of flame that extends for 20' and inflicts 2-12 hit points of damage. Should it be attacked with cold, an emberwings will counter with a pyretic burst, inflicting the damage of its firebolt on all within 20' of the emberwings -- but it may only do so once.

Emberwings are immune to fire and take only half damage from lightning. Cold causes an emberwings double damage, as do bludgeoning weapons.
