Archon, Harbinger

What appears to be a miniaturized orrery zips through the air, with thin, sharp blades flashing periodically from within.

Blades (Ex)

A harbinger can extend blades from its body to strike with as primary natural attacks. These blades possess a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls, and are treated as both magic and good-aligned for the purposes of penetrating damage reduction.

Disassemble (Su)

As a move-equivalent action, a harbinger can break apart into its components. This is treated as gaseous form, except the archon retains its full flight speed and DR, and cannot fit through gaps smaller than 1 inch in diameter. Reforming into an orrery is a standard action.

Minor Archon (Ex)

Harbinger archons lack the aura of menace and teleport abilities of more powerful archons.

Wrath (Su)

Once per minute, a harbinger archon can emit a blast of energy that deals 2d6 points of force damage to adjacent creatures. A DC 12 Reflex save halves this damage. The harbinger can choose to omit any target from this blast that it desires, damaging only those foes it chooses. The save DC is Charisma-based.
