Burn (Ex)

A leanan deals fire damage in addition to damage dealt on a successful hit in melee. Those affected by the burn ability must also succeed on a Reflex save or catch fire, taking the listed damage for an additional 1d4 rounds at the start of its turn. A burning creature can attempt a new save as a full-round action. Dropping and rolling on the ground grants a +4 bonus on this save. Creatures that hit a burning creature with natural weapons or unarmed attacks take fire damage as though hit by the burning creature and must make a Reflex save to avoid catching on fire.

Healing Flame (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds as a standard action, Leanan manifests a scared flame beneath her foe up to 30 feet away, dealing 6d6 points of damage (half holy/fire) and heals herself for half the damage dealt. The target must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 21) to take half damage and Leanan does not gain any hit points. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 23).

Lava Dome (Su)

All creatures within a 30-foot radius from leanan must make a DC 21 Will save or have their fire resistance dropped by 10 for 1d4 rounds. Whether or not the save is successful, that creature cannot be affected again by the same leanan’s lava dome ability for 24 hours. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Liquid Form (Su)

A leanan is always in liquid-lava form. She gains immunity to critical hits, poison, and sneak attacks. She also has DR/10 magic. She retains her own base speed.

Mesmerizing Voice (Su)

Leanan sings a mesmerizing song that charms all those nearby her. Creatures within 30 feet of leanan must make a Will save (DC 21) or be charmed for 1 minute. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 23).

Unearthly Grace (Su)

A leanan adds her Charisma modifier as a racial bonus on all her saving throws and as a deflection bonus to her AC.
