Spirits from the shadow plane dally at times in the world of light, and such as these lay with your ancestors once upon a time, imparting the mystery of shadowstuff into your lineage. When you bloodrage, you feel the powers of darkness well up within you, bringing an unseen fury to the light of day.

Bonus Feats: Blind-Fight, Dodge, Great Fortitude, Improved Initiative, Iron Will, Quick Draw, Stealthy

Bonus Spells: ray of enfeeblement (7th), invisibility (10th), deeper darkness (13th), shadow step (16th).

Bloodline Powers: While bloodraging, you gain the abilities of creatures that lurk in the shadows.

Shadow Infusion (Su)

At 1st level, as a swift action up to three times per day you can infuse your weapons with chilling shadows. When you do, your melee attacks gain the frost weapon special ability for 1 round. At 12th level, you can use this ability five times per day, and the effect is treated as icy burst.

Umbral Blades (Su)

At 4th level, any weapon you wield is treated as magic and silver for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. At 8th level, your weapons are considered cold iron as well.

Stalwart Mind (Su)

At 8th level, you gain a +4 bonus on saving throws against illusion and fear effects.

Dweller in Darkness (Su)

At 12th level, you gain the see in darkness ability, cold resistance 10, and are immune to the blinded and dazzled conditions.

Enveloping Shadows (Su)

At 16th level, when entering a bloodrage you can choose to exude an aura of deep shadows. This aura is a 5-foot spread centered on you, and lowers the light as a deeper darkness spell while also entangling creatures for 1 round that begin or end their turns within it.

Shadow Master (Su)

At 20th level, you become one with darkness. You gain immunity to cold, death effects, and energy drain. Ability drain and damage cannot lower you to below 1 in any ability score. You have these effects constantly, even while not bloodraging.
