Special Abilities

Angelic Power (Ex)

The Emperor’s natural attacks deal 1.5 times his Strength bonus (even though he has more than one attack) and gains a deflection base on his Charisma modifier. He also understands all languages.

Absolute Dominion [Starts Phase II]

Once below 50% hp (575), This Burst Mode lets the Emperor show complete dominion to all those within his presence. For a number of rounds equal to 1 + 1 round for every four HD, the Emperor has an angelic presence inflicting anyone within 120 ft-radius from him with the Charm status effect (DC 34) for 1 round however they must succeed the save every single round. He also gains 2d6 points of holy damage to his natural attacks and +2 save DC to his enfeebling spells. This limit break requires only a swift action to activate.

Dreary Cell (Su)

Once every 1d2+1 rounds as a standard action, the Emperor creates a spark of light in the ground that expands into a crest of energy and surrounds the opponent with exploding mines within 330 feet. The opponent must make a Will save (DC 32) or take 8d6 points of holy damage and be paralyzed for 23 rounds. Each round on its turn, the target may attempt a new Will saving throw (DC 32) to end the effect. This is a full-round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. A winged creature who is paralyzed cannot flap its wings and falls. A swimmer cannot swim and may drown.

During Phase II, increase the damage to 10d6.

Blue mage may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 25).

Elemental Attunement (Su)

Whenever the Emperor is struck by a spell, he gains MP based off how much spell cost and gains a 10 resistance to that elemental type including non-elemental for the rest of the fight.

Starfall (Su)

Once every 1d4+1 rounds as a standard action, the Emperor summon four molten meteors into the sky to rain upon your enemies. He can direct each of the spheres within 30 feet of each other. Those within the area of effect take 10d6 points of damage (half in fire damage, the other half in holy damage), a Reflex save (DC 32) for half damage. Creatures hit with multiple meteors must make multiple Reflex saves.

During Phase II, reduce cooldown to 1d2+1 rounds.
