HOST ABILITIES

Natural Armor (Ex)

When bonded, an airsuit symbiont grants its host a +1 natural armor bonus.

Life Sealed (Ex)

While bonded to a host creature, an airsuit subsists on the host creature’s exhaled breath and does not require air from outside sources. In return, an airsuit generates breathable air for the host creature by converting its own exhaled breath into fresh oxygen. An airsuit can perform this task even while underwater or in an airless environment. Additionally, an airsuit’s host is immune to inhaled poisons and diseases. An airsuit can supply oxygen to a host in an airless environment for 24 hours, after which time the airsuit must recharge in a breathable atmosphere for 1 hour.

An airsuit symbiont wraps its serpentine body around its host’s torso and unfolds one end of its body to wrap around its host’s face and head. Transparent leaves cover the wearer’s eyes allowing for a full field of vision. Detached, the lifesuit symbiont resembles a large constrictor snake with a tube-like head of thorny teeth.

The erahthi originally created the airsuit symbiont for use in underwater environments but adapted it as an early means of environmental protection for the first generation of aetherships pilots. The functionality of the airsuit eventually led to the development of the more powerful and robust lifesuit symbiont.
