Deflection Aura (Su)

Allies adjacent to a shield warden gain a +2 deflection bonus to AC (as usual this also applies to combat maneuver defense).

Indomitable Will (Su)

A shield warden gains a +4 bonus against mind-affecting effects.

Lend Shield (Ex)

As a standard action, a shield warden can duplicate one of its shields and send it flying to aid an ally.

The target must be within 60 ft. and within line of sight of the shield warden to benefit from this ability. A creature protected by this ability gains a +3 shield bonus to armor class and spell resistance 17. These protections remain in effect for 1 minute. A shield warden can use this ability a number of times per day equal to its Hit Dice.

Share Defenses (Su)

A shield warden can use its mage armor and shield spell-like abilities as if they had a range of close and could target a single creature (instead of a range of personal). A shield warden can do this a number of times per day equal to its Hit Dice, even if it can cast those spell-like abilities more often.
