Bond of the Death's-Head Hawkmoth [Symbiotic] Prerequisites: Aspect of the Vermin class feature, Aspect of the Death's-Head Hawkmoth.Benefit: [Symbiotic] feats increase the effectiveness of your [Hivemaster] feats. For your aspect of the death's-head hawkmoth feat, you are considered to have one more level in hivemaster. The individual benefits of that feat are also altered, as follows.

3: Your body has begun to produce the pheromone that the original aspect of the death's-head hawkmoth granted you, in larger quantities, allowing you to spread them over wider areas. When you take a standard action to force all near you to make a fortitude save versus being shaken, all within 20 feet of you must make a save, instead of just those who are within 10 feet of you.

7: One fact about the moth, is that they can determine the location of another moth, from miles away, just through smell. You have taken on this ability to sense the presense of your kin, to an even greater degree, for you have a bond with all insects, and not just moths, after all. You gain the ability to pin-point the exact location (but nothing else, unless it would be within your power to do so) of any insect or other creature with the vermin type, as long as they are within 1 mile per hivemaster level of your current location.

11: You are a terrible entity to even stand near, as your very existance inspires thoughts of death, as though you yourself were an aspect of the grim reaper. You gain another upgrade to your pheromone aura, which makes it so that, if you use your pheromone aura against something that is already shaken, it immediately becomes frightened for 3 rounds. Further uses of this ability after the entities are already frightened, just makes the duration of the effect last longer, and doesn't upgrade the fear to any higher levels.

15: It is sometimes said that the death's-head hawkmoth has ties with the supernatural and the strange, and even have travelled back and forth from death itself. It seems that you have started to take on these traits yourself, regardless of whether they are real or not. You may select a single 6th level sorcerer/wizard spell from either the abjuration school, the divination school, or the illusion school. You gain this spell as a spell-like ability with a caster level equal to your hivemaster level, usable at will.

Special: A character can only have a number of [Symbiotic] feats equal to the number of times that they have gained the Aspect of the Vermin class feature.
