Blessed by the spirits of their heritage, some legendary samurai share an incredible bond to their history. This manifests in the spirits of the dead watching over them, forming a powerful spiritual guardian which fights alongside them.
Spiritual Guardian (Su)
At 1st level, an ancestral inheritor gains an eidolon as though they were a summoner of their class level. This eidolon must have the biped base form, and it does not receive the claws evolution for free. Instead, it gains the same weapon proficiencies as the ancestral inheritor. A spiritual guardian cannot gain any evolutions which would grant it an additional natural attack. The ancestral inheritor can spend 1 spirit as a free action even if it is not their turn. If they do, the next time the spiritual guardian makes an attack roll, it can roll twice and take the better result.
This ability replaces challenge and kiai arts.
Protective Resolve (Su)
Whenever an ancestral inheritor is within 60 feet of their spiritual guardian, their spiritual guardian can use the ancestral inheritor’s resolve class feature, spending the ancestral inheritor’s spirit to do so.
This ability alters resolve.
Spiritual Surge (Su)
At 4th level, an ancestral inheritor can spend 1 spirit as a move action to grant their spiritual guardian the effect of a lesser evolution surge.
This ability replaces banner.
Greater Spirit Surge (Su)
At 10th level, an ancestral inheritor can spend 2 spirit as a move action to grant their spiritual guardian the effect of a evolution surge.
This ability replaces greater banner.
