SPECIAL ABILITIES

Fear Aura (Su)

Skeleton warriors are shrouded in an aura of fear. Creatures with less than 5 HD and in a 30-foot radius must succeed on a Will save or be affected as though by fear cast by a caster of the skeleton warrior’s levels.

Find Target (Sp)

A skeleton warrior can track and find the possessor of its circlet unerringly, as though guided by discern location. Using this ability, it can also find the last person to possess its circlet. Its caster level is equal to its total Hit Dice.
