This spell creates an animate wind of freezing cold air that moves and attacks a single target as directed by the caster. The breeze must make a touch attack using the caster’s ranged attack bonus, dealing 1d6 points of non-lethal damage. The wind is invisible, and gains all the bonuses of an invisible attacker (though it cannot be used to deliver sneak attacks). The wind strikes as a spell rather than a weapon (and thus can hit incorporeal creatures for 50% damage) and always strikes from the direction of the caster. It attacks its designated target once each round unless directed to a new target by the caster (which requires a standard action).

Creatures that take damage from the wind must make a Fortitude save. On a failed save the target is shaken and suffers a –2 penalty to all attack and damage rolls and skill check for 1 round/caster level.
