Purifier

Some are bound to a higher purpose, to cleanse this world not of evil in the form of demons or the undead, but rather to purify it from the unnatural and aberrant. Paladins who take up this cause are sometimes known as purifiers and seek to cleanse the unclean from the world.

Smite the Unclean (Su)

Once per day, a purifier can call out to the powers of purity to aid her in her struggle against abominations. This ability functions as smite evil, but instead works on creatures of the aberration type or creatures with the psionic subtype.

This ability replaces smite evil.

Detect Evil

The purifier can manifest detect psionics as a psi-like ability in place of detect evil, although she can still use detect evil as normal.

Aura of Purification

At 2nd level, the purifier and all allies within 10 ft. of the purifier gain a +1 deflection bonus to AC against attacks made by aberrations or psionic creatures and a +1 insight bonus to their Will saves against attacks from these sources. At 6th level and every four levels thereafter, this bonus increases by 1, to a maximum of +5 at 18th level.

This ability replaces lay on hands and channel positive energy.

Purifying Flame (Su)

At 3rd level, the purifier's weapon can be wreathed in a purifying flame that deals 1d6 points of fire damage for one round. Activating this ability is a swift action. When used against the target of his smite, this fire damage ignores fire resistance and fire immunity. At 6th level and every three levels thereafter, the damage increases by 1d6 points of fire damage, to a maximum of 6d6 at 18th level. The purifier can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 1/2 her paladin level plus her Charisma modifier.

This ability replaces mercy.

Manifesting

At 4th level, the purifier gains manifesting as a gifted blade of one level lower.

This ability replaces spells.

Divine Bond

The purifier must choose a weapon for her divine bond.
