Bio-Drones are human or alien brains embedded in a flying mechanical platform. Cruel surgery has limited them to being mindless weapons of terror.

The Bio-Drone is a creation only an alien mind could conceive of. It is a brain, (human or alien) suspended in amniotic fluids and connected to a powered base unit that can fly on land or below water. Each Bio-Drone is armed with a powerful auditory disruptor, part machine and part organism. Highly accurate and tenacious these super guard dogs are widely used by the aliens to protect valuable assets.


Bio-Drones will attempt to draw fire to set off their death bombs, and thus achieve a long sought suicide...

Death Trap (Ex): Bio-Drones are equipped with bombs set to explode should their imprisoned brain die in combat. If reduced to 0 hp the Bio Drone explodes doing 15d6 damage to everything in a 30 ft. Radius (DC 14 Reflex Save for half damage, Save DC is Constitution based).

Auditory Disruptor (Ex): The Bio-Drone may fire it's Auditory Disruptor every 1d4 rounds. It has a Range Increment of 60 ft., and does 3d10 Sonic Damage.
