Dogmatic Discordance (Su)

Good or evil creatures take a -2 penalty when making saving throws against a silver dragon’s spells, spell-like abilities, supernatural abilities, breath weapon, and aura.

Hallowed Armor (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, the silver dragon grants allies an scared barrier. All allies gain the effect of Radiant Spikes, as the white magic spell. The allies must be within 30 feet of the silver dragon when it uses this ability to receive these bonuses. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Light Rays (Su)

As a standard action, a silver dragon fires 3 beams of holy energy at its foes, up to 30 feet away. Each ray requires a ranged touch attack (+10) 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: Arcana DC 21).
