TACTICS
Before Combat Vrag manifests inertial armor, biofeedback, and power resistance before wading into combat.
During Combat The Candlekeeper uses his devilbound dinosaur to keep enemies busy, teleporting to different sides of the battlefield to force foes to move themselves into a position where the reptile can be most effective. Meanwhile he manifests telekinetic maneuver and telekinetic force to knock creatures prone and disperse the party. If they persist on grouping together, he manifests breath of the black dragon at the party.
Morale Vrag has nothing to lose at this point and fights to the death, though he sacrifices his devilbound dinosaur first.

Acquired in a deal with savage primitives decades ago, Vrag kept this dinosaur’s egg in stasis until he reached Uklonjen, where the latent psionic energies increased the thing’s intelligence just enough that it could sign a contract with him, granting it great power. The dinosaur is fiercely loyal to the Candlekeeper, fighting to the very end to protect the gitwerc.
