Astral Hunter. The astral stalker has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) and Wisdom (Survival) checks. When the stalker uses the Search action and finds a creature, it can magically track the creature for 24 hours or until it tracks a different creature this way. While tracking the creature, the hunter knows the exact location of the creature, and whether it is below half of its maximum hit points or not.
Elusive Prey. Wisdom (Survival) checks made to track an astral stalker are made with disadvantage.
Nimble Escape. The astral stalker can take the Disengage or Hide actions as a bonus action on each of its turns.

Details

Astral stalker roam the Astral Sea, reveling in the thrill of the hunt. They prefer intelligent creatures as quarry, for the added challenge and for the added satisfaction of a kill. They adhere to a strange set of tenets known as the Rules of the Hunt: they do not ever prey again on a creature that has eluded them; they do not hunt a creature that has employed them for at least one year; and they do not, under any circumstances, hunt each other. Astral stalkers see any creature that is not an astral stalker as potential prey, and when encountered on the Astral Sea, or something on other planes, they are liable to sneak up and attack immediately. They favor ambushes, as they are most skilled in sinking their claws into creatures that are not aware of them, breaking away from the fight, and attacking against from an unexpected angle.
