The spirit of the hawthorn tree is represented by the húath ogham and is associated with duality and contradiction.
It is believed that the spirit of the húath represents the potency of nature and magic and their conflicting but intertwined fate. The hawthorn is closely tied to the fey and it is believed that the tree’s nature and properties symbolize their capricious nature.
Bonus Feat: Blessing of the Húath or Magical Aptitude.
Nature’s Touch (Su)
At 1st level, you gain a resistance bonus of +1 versus spells, spell-like abilities, or supernatural abilities of creatures of the fey type or spells that involve plants (such as entangle or wall of thorns). This bonus increases by +1 at 5th level and every five class levels thereafter (maximum of +5 at 20th level). Once you reach 6th level, you are no longer slowed by natural hazards though you may still suffer damage as applicable.
Cloak of Contradiction (Su)
At 8th level, you may shed an aura as an immediate action that requires anyone within 5 ft. of you that attempts to attack you physically to make a Will saving throw. If the attacker fails the save, the target attacks itself and suffers normal damage from the attack. The aura remains until the beginning of your next turn. You may activate this aura 3 + your Wisdom modifier times per day. It is a mind-affecting effect.
