Light Rays (Su)

As a standard action, Kirin fires 3 beams of holy energy at its foes, up to 30 feet away. Each ray requires a ranged touch attack to hit and deals 2d6 points of holy damage. The rays may be fired at the same or different targets, but all rays must be aimed at targets within 30 feet of each other and fired simultaneously. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 21).

Revered Weapon (Su)

Kirin can imbue allies’ weapons to deal holy damage. All allies may be affected so long as they are within 30 feet when Kirin uses the ability. Affected allies add 1d6 holy damage to their weapon damage rolls. The duration lasts 1d6 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 21).

Bypass Spell Resistance (Ex)

Kirin’s command of magic is such that she may unravel a creature’s natural resistance to magic. Kirin may reduce a target’s spell resistance by 21 for 1d6 rounds, once per day per target. In addition, Kirin ignores energy resistance equal to 10.

SPECIAL ABILITIES (phase II)

Holy Aura (Su) [Begins Phase II]

When below 80% and as a swift action, Kirin energizes the area around her with a bright light, all allies within 120-ft.-radius around her gain a regen spell-like ability based on 15 per health healed per round and all foes take 2d6 holy damage per round.

Healing Master (Su) [Phase II+]

Once every 1d4+1 rounds, Kirin can cast Cure, Cure II, Cure III, Cure IV, Cura or Curaga using one standard action. Both of the spells must have the same casting time. Kirin can make any decisions concerning the spells independently of each other. Any target affected by both of the spells takes a –4 penalty on saves made against each spell. A white mage receives a +4 bonus on caster level checks made to overcome spell resistance with these two spells.

SPECIAL ABILITIES (phase III)
