Herald of Freedom and Justice

Before you stands a bare-chested male of clearly celestial origin with glistening ebony skin. The long, curly locks of his dark hair fall in cascades down his broad shoulders from a head crowned by a diadem of green laurel intertwined by brightly orange roses. His majestic wings shine with the deep orange hue of a sunset, and in each hand he carries an exquisitely forged morningstar. On his face he has a mien that can only be interpreted as righteous holy wrath.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Entangling Crown (Sp)

The rose and laurel crown is his heraldric symbol. The crown grants him the ability to entangle his foes as the entangle (DC 29) spell. This functions with a caster level of 20th and is heightened to 9th level.

Freedom and Liberty

These twin morningstars are gifts from his goddess. When used together, the wielder can make full attacks with both of them at no penalty, and the wielder cannot be disarmed. They are effectively +6 morningstars and grant the wielder a +6 sacred bonus to all ability scores (included in the above statistics).

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary
Treasure triple (entangling crown, freedom, liberty, additional gear)

The herald of freedom is a creature of mercurial passions who can be a close friend, or a bitter and persistent enemy, should he take a disliking. He adores children and the young, and has been known to disguise himself as a youthful human or half-elf youth simply to take part in their frolicking and games. Coupled with his passionate nature, it is far from surprising that many sorcerers with celestial bloodlines and aasimar claim to trace their lineage back to him. Considering the goddess he serves, it is no surprise that the thing that angers him more than anything else is the oppressive ways of tyrants everywhere, and when he encounters such behavior, he needs little provocation before he starts whirling his two morningstars, smiting the wicked and liberating the subjugated.
