Agathion, Leonal Class

This lion-headed humanoid has golden fur, sharp teeth, and long cat-like claws on its hand and feet.

A leonal is a lion-like agathion, noble and fierce. Though gentle with their families and patient with strangers on their home plane, in battle leonals are deadly foes of evil and cruelty. They hunt fiends and other evil monsters, silently tailing their prey until they find the right time to leap and slash. Leonals pride themselves on their hunting prowess, and few land creatures can match their speed. Although capable of using weapons, the majority of leonals prefer to battle evil with tooth and claw.

A Leonal stands 6 feet and weigh 270 lbs. on average. Males usually have manes of either dark gold or black. Females do not have manes, but may have longer hair on the back of the head and neck.

Medium outsider (agathion, extraplanar, good)

Alignment: Any. (Normally good)

Hit Die: d10.

Protective Aura (Su)

Against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures, this ability provides a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saving throws to anyone within 20 feet of the leonal. Otherwise, it functions as a magic circle against evil effect and a lesser globe of invulnerability, both with a radius of 20 feet (caster level equals leonal’s HD).

Roar (Su)

Up to three times per day, a leonal can emit a powerful roar as a standard action. Each roar affects a 60-foot cone with the effects of a holy word spell and also deals 2d6 points of sonic damage to all creatures in the area (Fortitude save negates). This is a sonic effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.
