Special Abilities

Golden Glory (Su) A cassisian gains a +2 sacred bonus on concentration checks and caster level checks made to overcome spell resistance, and as a swift action it can share this ability with an adjacent good-aligned ally until the end of that ally’s next turn. If that ally uses smite evil, challenge, judgment, quarry, or a similar ability against an evil creature during that time, that ally gains a +2 sacred bonus to AC for as long as that ability lasts (maximum 1 minute). In addition, when the cassisian or an adjacent good-aligned ally is attacked by an evil enemy using smite good, challenge, judgment, quarry, or similar ability, the cassisian can expend one use of its mythic power as an immediate action to end that effect.

Lesser Protective Aura (Su) A cassisian has a lesser form of the protective aura possessed by more powerful angels. This protective aura grants the cassisian a +2 deflection bonus to its AC against evil foes, and a +2 resistance bonus on all saving throws made against evil effects or spells cast by evil creatures. This aura extends to a radius of 5 feet, but can only benefit one additional creature other than the cassisian at any one time. A cassisian’s protective aura is fragile, and as soon as an evil creature successfully strikes the cassisian, or as soon as the cassisian fails a saving throw against an evil source, its protective aura fades away and is no longer applicable. The cassisian can reactivate its protective aura by spending 1 minute concentrating upon the task.

Perfect Memory (Ex) Though they are not particularly intelligent, cassisians have perfect memories and remember everything they see or hear. They can faultlessly recite conversations they heard hundreds of years before. They also have the power to erase portions of their own memories, which they do (usually under orders from superior angels) to protect sensitive information.

Tower of Iron Will (Su) A good-aligned mythic ally adjacent to a mythic cassisian can expend one use of its own mythic power as a free action when making a Will save against an effect created by a non-mythic opponent, allowing it to roll twice and select the better result. The cassisian can expend one use of its mythic power as an immediate action to allow an adjacent good-aligned ally to use this ability against an effect created by a mythic opponent, to add the cassisian’s mythic surge to the saving throw against an effect created by a non-mythic opponent, or to allow a good-aligned ally to use this ability against a non-mythic effect without expending a use of its own mythic power.
