All-Around Vision (Ex): The sensory organs on all sides of a tridrone allow it to look in any direction, bestowing a +4 racial bonus on Perception checks for visual stimuli. Opponents gain no flanking bonuses when attacking a tridrone.
Coordinated Ally (Ex): Tridrones work exceptionally well with other lawful allies. When successfully aided on a skill check or attack roll by a lawful-aligned ally, or when aiding another lawfully aligned creature, they apply or gain a +3 bonus on their checks or attack rolls (instead of the normal +2 bonus). Furthermore, tridrones gain a +4 bonus on attack rolls against an opponent flanked by a lawful-aligned ally (instead of the normal +2 bonus).
Fixed Initiative (Ex): Tridrones are rigid in their action, even in the most chaotic situations. As a result, a tridrone's initiative check is always 2. When combat begins, a tridrone uses this number as its initiative — it never rolls an initiative check.
Skills: Tridrones have a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
