Thais

A beautiful woman of regal bearing relaxes here, cutting an imposing figure more than twice as tall as a man. Five feathered wings, three black and two white, sprout from her back, while a sixth appears to be missing. Blue ribbons weave across the angelic figure’s form, offering only the barest hint of modesty. She holds a large crystalline halberd that seems to crackle and pulse with chaotic energy.

Special Abilities

Armor of Valor (Su) A halo of righteous energy surrounds Thais, granting her a deflection bonus to her AC equal to her Charisma bonus.

Aura of Bravery (Su) Thais is surrounded by an aura of courage that inspires her allies. Friendly creatures in a 20-foot radius are affected by the spells remove fear and remove paralysis. Each ally also gains a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls, weapon damage rolls, saves, and skill checks, while each hostile creature takes a –1 morale penalty on such rolls.

Change Shape (Su) Thais can assume the form of a female elf, half-elf, or human from Medium to Huge size at will.

Charmed Life (Ex) As the personification of luck, Thais gains a +1 luck bonus on all saving throws. Additionally, up to three times per day, she can choose to reroll any die roll that she makes before it results in success or failure. She must take the result of the reroll, even if it’s worse than the original roll.

Fortune’s Kiss (Su) Three times per day, as a standard action, Thais can blow a kiss that grants good luck to any one creature within 30 feet. The target can roll his next d20 roll twice and take the better result.

Piercing Gaze (Su) Thais’s penetrating gaze burns deep into the hearts and souls of enemies within 30 feet. Lawful enemies must make a DC 25 Will save or take 5d6 points of damage and become dazed. A successful save reduces this damage by half and negates the daze effect. Non-lawful creatures are unaffected by Thais’s gaze. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Tongues (Sp) Thais can speak with any creature that has a language, as if using a tongues spell. This ability is always active.

Tyranny’s Foil Tyranny’s Foil, also known as the Staff of Liberty, is a Large +2 anarchic keen halberd. In addition, three times per day, as a standard action, Thais can use the halberd to open all nonmagical locked doors and bindings and break all non-magical chains and shackles within 30 feet (regardless of hardness). If Tyranny’s Foil is ever removed from Thais’ hands, she can summon the weapon back to her grasp as a free action.

Description

The herald of Cayden Cailean is Thais, the living personification of freedom, luck, and courage, and the personal emissary of the god of bravery, freedom, and wine. She is usually sent to aid or protect Cayden Cailean’s faithful, but might appear any place where slaves struggle against oppression, valiant rebels fight for freedom, the desperate and afraid need hope and courage, or when a hero needs just a little luck to further some great cause.

Thais typically appears as a beautiful, 15-foot-tall, angelic woman, but she can change her size at will to anywhere from 4 feet to 32 feet tall. She wears scandalous angelic garb, little more than blue ribbons symbolizing freedom. Thais is always depicted bearing her signature weapon, an ancient halberd borrowed from the goddess Milani’s armory called Tyranny’s Foil. Thais’s wings are said to represent the Six Sacred Freedoms: Liberty, or freedom from restraint; Individuality, or freedom from coercion; Conscience, or freedom from corruption; Love, or freedom from loneliness; and Security, or freedom from fear. Her sixth wing, representing Autonomy, or freedom from oppression, is missing.
