Codex (Su)

Each codex archon is also an actual codex. Within its pages, the codex archon details all that the archon has ever learned on its chosen topic. When a favored enemy of the codex archon is forced to attempt a saving throw against the archon's spells, the foe takes a penalty on the saving throw equal to half the codex archon's favored enemy bonus (–2 for most codex archons).

Favored Enemy (Ex)

A codex archon selects one favored enemy, as per the ranger class feature.

Light Ray (Ex)

A codex archon can fire a beam of light to damage foes. This light ray has a maximum range of 60 feet.

This attack overcomes damage reduction of any type.
