The Mosquito Macronid, being the least intelligent of the evil Macronid plagues, is driven by primal need more than evil desire. The Debilitator uses the unquenchable thirst of Mosquitos to his advantage by amassing swarms of nearly-starved ones against intruders of his Abyssal realm.

A Macronid of this class will first rend with its clawed forearms (1-4 each) or simply slash with a simple, sharp-edged weapon. Either way, it will then attempt to HOLD FAST (rolling "to hit" at -3) its opponent. If successful, it will attack at +4 with its posterior proboscus (still in the same round) which would cause an additional point of damage. Once stung, the Mosquito must be killed or forceably removed or it will suck blood at a rate of 1-2 hit points' worth per round. It would not be reccomended to remove it while it is still alive, because doing so will rip open a gash and cause 1-10 damage. Only after the foe is killed can the stinger be removed without causing additional damage, provided a Cleric does so.
