Protector (3pp)


This creature resembles a tall, powerful human with green eyes and a bald head. It is dressed in long, flowing green robes that seem to billow as though blown by an invisible and unfelt gentle breeze.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Air Walk (Su)

Protectors can air walk as the spell of the same name (caster level 10th). This ability is always active and can be dispelled, but the protector can restart it as a free action on its next turn.

Know Alignment (Su)

A protector automatically knows the alignment of any creature within 50 feet that it looks upon.

* Editor’s Note
The cure minor wounds spell does not exist in Pathfinder – GMs should replace this with stabilize.

ECOLOGY

Environment Inner and Outer planes
Organization solitary, pair, or troupe (6-11)
Treasure standard

Protectors are extraplanar guardians of law that appear as very noble and regal creatures. They are often sent to the Material Plane when the forces of chaos swing from the balance. Protectors move by means of their air walk ability; their feet never touch the ground, and they always float 6 to 10 inches above the ground. A protector stands 7 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds or more.

Protectors attack neutral (except non-intelligent or low-intelligence creatures such as animals) and chaotic creatures on sight. They never knowingly and willingly attack lawful creatures. A protector fights with its longsword and spells.
