Ruby Light (Su)
At 14th level, Carbuncle imbues nearby allies with a magical shield. Allies must be within 30 feet of Carbuncle when he uses this ability to receive the effect. The shield deflects the next spell targeted at the affected individual back at its caster, and is then discharged. The shield also discharges after 1d6 rounds.
