Ethereal Gate (Su) An ethereal gate to the afterlife appears on Ian's body, 5 inches in diameter on the center of his chest. To those that can see this gate, they appear as rings of stone that slowly rotate, only opening to allow passing souls to their final destinations.
Aura of Unease (Ex) All animals that come within 10 feet of him must make a Will save DC 13 or become shaken. The target stays shaken as long as it stays within 10 feet of him and up to 1d4 rounds afterwords. If the target succeeds at its save, it is unaffected by Ian's Aura of Unease for 24 hours.
Discount (Ex) He gains a discount on being raised from the dead. The material component cost requirement drops by 40%.
Gate Protection (Ex) He gains a +2 bonus on all saves to resist the supernatural, extraordinary, spell-like or psionic attacks of undead creatures.
Grim Sight (Su) He gains a +5 bonus on spot check to notice things within 30 feet. He can also see invisible creatures and ethereal creatures within 30 feet.
Returning Memories (Ex) A day after returning from the dead, an epiphany strikes him, and he regains his lost power. At 8th level, if he dies and is brought back to life with a means that would cause him to loose a level, he instead only suffers temporary level drain as if he had been energy drained. The negative level is automatically restored after 24 hours and never becomes permanent level loss.
Grim Transformation (Su) A flow of strange ethereal waves flow into his body and weapons. His hair, skin and eyes turn pale. He begins glowing as brightly as a light spell. His type changes to Outsider. His armor's armor check penalty, maximum dexterity bonus, Arcane Spell Failure are negated. He can touch any incorporeal creature as though it were solid, dealing damage normally and ignoring an incorporeal creature's 50% miss chance. He glides roughly 4 inches over the ground without touching it. He can pass over non-solid or unstable ground without suffering penalties to movement, such as water or lava. He leaves no tracks behind. He may Transform at will as a free action on his turn. Ian Jackdaw can transform 3 times a day for 4 rounds per Transformation with the following properties: Rending Touch and Lucent Body.
  • Rending Touch: He may perform a touch attack against his opponents at will, dealing 4d6 damage (8d6 damage while Transformed) as magical energies tear through and inundate the target.
  • Lucent Body: When he transforms, a glowing radiance flares from his body and weapons. His entire body glows like a light spell. He gains a +2 deflection bonus to his Armor Class against all attacks from corporeal sources, except force effects or weapons with the ghost touch enhancement. He can move through solid objects at half his movement speed. He gains a +10 circumstance bonus to Move Silently skill checks.
