Dominion

Daevas of Dominion seek out servants who are driven by an unstoppable drive to impose order and rule on the world around them. Many daevics of Dominion are great kings or cruel tyrants, though whether that is a result of the powers granted by their bond or a reflection of the type of individual daevas associated with this Passion seek out is a matter of some debate. A daevic who selects this Passion is usually Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral, or Lawful Evil.

Passion Veils: Behemoth Hide, Cinture of the Dragon, Collar of Skilled Instruction, Cuirass of Confidence, Crusader’s Shield, Daevic Aspect, Horselord’s Greaves, Sentinel’s Helm, Stone Giant’s Girdle

Class Skills: Diplomacy, Handle Animal, Knowledge (Nobility).

At 3rd level, the daevic gains Two-Weapon Fighting as a bonus feat. At 5th level, she gains Improved Shield Bash, and at 8th level she gains Shield Master. The daevic does not need to meet the prerequisites for these feats. At 6th level the possessing daeva begins to transform and adopt an affinity for a particular aspect of Dominion. Choose one of the following aspects: Benevolence or Tyranny.

Benevolence

The possessing daeva has grown so powerful that it can now extend its guiding and protective influence to your allies as well. The daevic chooses one Teamwork feat for which he qualifies and may share this feat with all allies within 30 feet as a move action; at 12th level he may share this feat as a swift action instead. At 12th and 18th level the daevic learns an additional Teamwork feat for which he qualifies and may share all Teamwork feats gained in this way when activating this ability. Allies affected by this ability retain the use of the granted feats for a number of rounds equal to the daevic’s Charisma modifier, even if they leave the 30 foot area of effect.

Tyranny

The daeva and its host are now driven by an uncontrollable need to dominate and control those around them, imposing their will upon all they survey. The daevic can make Intimidate checks to demoralize as a swift action and gains a +2 competence bonus to Intimidate checks. This bonus increases by an additional +2 at 12th and 18th level.
