A beautiful woman of regal bearing relaxes here, cutting an imposing figure more than twice as tall as a man. Five feathered wings, three black and two white, sprout from her back, while a sixth appears to be missing. Blue ribbons weave across the angelic figure’s form, offering only the barest hint of modesty. She holds a large crystalline halberd that seems to crackle and pulse with chaotic energy.

During Combat The Herald of Freedom dislikes personally engaging in physical combat, instead preferring to inspire and bolster her allies with her aura of bravery, fortune’s kisses, and the use of good hope and greater heroism, coupled with her piercing gaze. If hard-pressed, she grows to Huge size and makes flyby or spring attacks with her halberd.

The Herald of Freedom can use the bit of luck (30 ft. range) and good fortune Luck domain powers three times per day each.
Three times per day, as a standard action, she can use the halberd to open all non-magical locked doors and bindings and break all non-magical chains and shackles within 30 feet (regardless of hardness). If the halberd is ever removed from her hands, she can summon the weapon back to her grasp as a free action.
The Herald of Freedom is a personification of freedom and courage. She typically appears as a 15-foot-tall, angelic woman, but can change her size to be anywhere from 4 feet to 32 feet tall. She is always portrayed carrying her signature weapon, a crystalline halberd.
