Profane Beauty (Su): As long as Lily Frost does not wear any armor or wield a shield, she gains a profane bonus equal to her Charisma bonus towards her Armor Class that may not exceed her levels of cleric.
Turn Resistance (Ex): Lily Frost has a total turn resistance of +10, combined from the +2 base bonus from being a necropolitan, +4 from Improved Turning Resistance and +4 from her cloak of turn resistance.
Resist Control (Ex): Lily Frost has a +2 profane bonus to resist the effect of a control undead spell.
Unnatural Resilience (Ex): Lily Frost heals at the same rate as a living creature. The Heal skill has no effect on her, but negative energy (such as inflict spells) heals her.
Lily Frost is the priestess of the Evening Glory in the necropolis of Epitaph. She does her job admirably, trying to bring the undead inhabitants to the surface to enjoy their undeath. Lily organizes footraces and competitions, all the while trying to find ways to distract the townsfolk from the evil behavior epidemic of her kind. But before she was as cheerful as cherry pie, she was once a very troubled individual. What brought her back from the edge was the same thing that sent her there: love.
In her younger years, Lily traveled and made her wages as an adventuring bard. In her travels, she met a handsome rogue and they soon became inseparable. He was able to get her to do anything, and she did them willingly. Once they decided to take on a dungeon by themselves--with terrible results. Lily's entertaining career was nearly ruined when she was disfigured trying to save her rogue boyfriend. He was able to bring her to safety, but as soon as she was situated, he left her alone in the hospital. Lily was heartbroken, and wanted to die. It was in her suicidal state when she heard of the cult of the Evening Glory.
The Evening Glory was about the preservation of love and beauty--two things that now appealed to her mentally fragile state--through a magical rite. When she was well enough, she sold many of her magic items to pay for the procedure and set out on her goal. Through the ritual she gained self-confidence, power, happiness, love and beauty; but to gain these things she had to give up something most precious. So it was in faith that Lily Frost gave up her mortal life... and joined the ranks of the undead.
That ritual was over 120 years ago, and Lily doesn't look a day over nineteen. Such is the enduring power of the Evening Glory, which Lily testifies at every opportunity. With fair countenance and a winning smile, she tries her best to carry on the message of her mistress.
