Aroghin paragons become tougher and more resilient as well as overcoming their failings. All of the following are class features of the aroghin paragon.
Nonlethal Damage Reduction (Ex): Toughing it out, they resist the pain that causes others to fall. An aroghin paragon ignores the first point of nonlethal damage from attacks. This resistance increases by one again at his 4th character level, 8th, 12th, 16th, 20th and so on.
Restored Body and Soul (Ex): Through an intense connection to his people, an aroghin paragon's soul is healed. He looses the Wounded Soul racial quality and the Slow Healing racial quality.
