Bahamut Zero, the First Sire

This Bahamut-class Eidolon belongs exclusively to Dr. Arecia Al-Rashia—and, much like its owner, nearly everything about Bahamut Zero is shrouded in mystery. Not even high-ranking Sorcery officials are privy to details about this Eidolon. All that is known about this fantastic creature is that its abilities are on an entirely different level than those of the dominion’s other summoned warriors. In the Battle of Judecca, Dr. Al-Rashia summoned Bahamut Zero, who in turn came to Class Zero’s rescue and slayed the Azure Dragon l’Cie, Shinryu Celestia.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dragon Fang (Ex)

Once every 1d4+1 rounds, as a standard action, Bahamut Zero does a vicious bite at (+62), if he hits his opponent, he does 16d8 points of slashing/piercing damage.

Freedom of Movement (Su)

Bahamut Zero is constantly protected by freedom of movement, as per the spell.

Gigavolt (Su)

As a standard action, Bahamut Zero can charges up and shoots out a charged bolt towards its target or a 60-ft. radius of lightning centered shock wave from its self. The single target shot does 15d10 points of lightning damage or the radius blast does 10d10 points of lightning damage per target, a Reflex save for half damage (DC 44). A blue mage may learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31). The save DC is charisma-based.

Glare (Su)

As a standard action, a Bahamut Zero may select a single target within 90 feet, who then takes 15d10 fire damage, dealing half damage to those normally immune to fire and treating fire resistance as if it was 10 points lower. They must then make a Reflex save (DC 44) for half damage. Blue mages can learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31).

Greater Impulse (Su)

Once every 1d2+1 rounds as a swift action, Bahamut Zero releases a blast of energy at his foe. He can make a ranged touch attack (+51), hitting a foe up to 90 feet away. The subject takes 12d6 points of non-elemental damage.

Improved Evasion (Ex)

Bahamut Zero still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks such as a dragon’s breath weapon, but henceforth he takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless Bahamut Zero (such as one who is unconscious or paralyzed) does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.

True Seeing (Su)

Bahamut Zero continuously uses this ability, as the spell.

Wind Slash (Su)

As a standard action, Bahamut Zero uses his wings to cause the wind to slice all those in a 60-ft.- cone. Creatures within the area of effect take 15d6 points of wind damage, a successful Reflex save (DC 44) reduces the damage by half. Blue mages may learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31). The save DC is charisma-based.

SPECIAL ABILITIES (PHASE II)

Counterstrike Stance (Su) [Phase II]

SPECIAL ABILITIES (PHASE III)
