The tembo is a savage predator that will eat anything, but it prefers the children of sentient races. Tembo base themselves in a lair or den and hunt in packs throughout the surrounding wilderness. In addition to their physical speed and strength, tembo also boast psionic powers and the ability to drain the life energy of their victims.

Tembo are fearless fighters, either alone or in packs, equipped with several negative‐energy related attacks. The greatest danger of the tembo comes from its horrid mouth. A tembo can sap vital energy from its opponent every time it successfully hits with its powerful jaws.
