The militant lantern archon can fire two beams of light to damage foes as a full-attack action or one ray as a standard-attack action. These light rays have a maximum range of 30 feet and overcome damage reduction of any type.


Environment any (Heaven)
Organization solitary, pair, or squad (3 6)

A lantern archon that proves itself in battle against the Abyss or Hell might join the legions of Heaven as a foot-soldier in a never-ending war. These militant lantern archons shed their naivety and friendly nature for silent stoicism. They see too much death to remain the pure and curious creatures they once were, but make great sacrifices so others might remain innocent.
