Aura of Invulnerability (Su) A guardian tonal emanates a 30-foot radius aura that functions as a lesser globe of invulnerability spell effect that moves with the guardian tonal.

The animal spirits known as tonalli (singular: tonal) are revered by many culutres as astrological signs and totems. They also manifest as immortal guardians of all things divine, whether sacred or profane. The tonalli most commonly encountered by mortals are the so-called guardian tonalli, a race of spirits which resemble sky-blue jaguars. These feline guardians protect ancient temples, magical pools, and other sacred sites, particularly those found in tropical jungles and mountains.

Guardian tonalli are 5 feet long and weigh 200 pounds.

Tonal Traits

The tonalli are a diverse race of animal-like outsiders, one representative of which is the guardian tonal. Other types of tonalli are known to exist. The majority resemble birds, canines, felines, and snakes native to warm climates. All tonalli are neutral, zealously defending the divine from would-be despoilers, regardless of alignment.

While they resemble any number of different animals, all tonalli have certain traits in common.

Blindsense: Each tonal has 60-ft. blindsense in addition to any other senses it has.
Aura of Invulnerability (Su): Each tonal emanates an aura of invulnerability which produces the effects of a lesser globe of invulnerability or globe of invulnerability spell centered on the tonal.
Good Fortitude and Reflex Saves: Every tonal has Fortitude and Reflex as its good saves.
No Spell-Like Abilities: Tonalli never have racial spell-like abilities.
Languages: Tonalli speak Common and Celestial.
