Radiance (Sp)

An iophanite usually glows with a golden light equivalent to that of a candle. In battle, its glow increases, filling the area within 5 feet.

An iophanite can suppress or resume this glow as a free action. Additionally, as a standard action at will an iophanite can intensify its glow to reproduce the effects of the spell flare.

A creature can resist this effect with a DC 14 Fortitude save, though evil creatures take a –4 penalty on their saves. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Shield Form (Su)

Once per day, an iophanite can transform into a +1 spiked light steel shield sized for a Small or Medium creature. An iophanite cannot communicate or use any of its other abilities while in this form. Once it transforms, it cannot change back for 24 hours, though the spell break enchantment can end the transformation early. An iophanite regains its full hit points when it shifts back into its normal form. If the shield is destroyed, the iophanite is killed.
