'''{{Anchor|Eerie Howl}} ([[Su]]):''' The ghost eater's eerie, echoing howl causes mindless terror to take hold of all creatures that hear it— including the spirits of the dead. All creatures within 60 feet must make a Will save (DC 14). The howl has the same effect as a [[SRD:Fear (Spell)|''fear'']] spell with the following exceptions: it affects undead creatures, and it is a sonic effect which can be countered with [[SRD:Silence|''silence'']] or the [[SRD:Bard|bard]]'s countersong ability. A ghost eater can emit an eerie howl up to 3 times per day. The save DC is Charisma-based.

'''{{Anchor|Final Repose}} ([[Ex]]):''' Undead creatures destroyed by a ghost eater cannot return; even ghosts with the rejuvenation ability are destroyed forever.

There are two ways to restore life to a creature slain by a ghost eater. [[SRD:True Resurrection|''True resurrection'']] still functions normally (this includes the detail that it reverts undead creatures to their pre-undead state). And if the ghost eater that killed the victim can be found, captured alive, and brought to the corpse of the victim, then [[SRD:Wish|''wish'']], [[SRD:Limited Wish|''limited wish'']], or [[SRD:Miracle|''miracle'']] can restore the connection between spirit and corpse, at which point [[SRD:Raise Dead|''raise dead'']] and similar spells function normally. If the ghost eater is killed, the spirits it has consumed are lost forever.
