Celestials speak Celestial, Infernal, and Draconic.
Aura of Menace (Su): A righteous aura surrounds archons that fight or get angry. Any hostile creature within a 20-foot radius of an archon must succeed at a Will save to resist its effects. The save DC varies with the type of archon. Those who fail suffer a -2 morale penalty to attacks, AC, and saves for one day or until they successfully hit the archon that generated the aura. A creature that has resisted or broken the effect cannot be affected again by that archon’s aura for one day.
Magic Circle against Evil (Su): A magic circle against evil effect always surrounds archons, identical with the spell cast by a sorcerer whose level equals the archon’s Hit Dice. The effect can be dispelled, but the archon can create it again during its next turn as a free action. (The defensive benefits from the circle are not included in the statistics block.)
Teleport (Su): Archons can teleport without error at will, as the spell cast by a 14th-level sorcerer, except that the creature can transport only itself and up to 50 pounds of objects.
Tongues (Su): All celestials can speak with any creature that has a language, as though using a tongues spell cast by a 14th-level sorcerer. This ability is always active.
Immunities (Ex): All celestials are immune to electricity and petrification attacks. Devas, planetars, and solars are also immune to cold and acid.
All celestials receive a +4 racial bonus to Fortitude saves against poison.
Keen Vision (Ex): All celestials have low-light vision and 60-foot darkvision.
Spell-Like Abilities: At will: aid, continual flame, detect evil, and message. These abilities are as the spells cast by a 6th-level sorcerer.
Celestial Qualities: Aura of menace (save DC 16), magic circle against evil, electricity and petrification immunity, teleport, tongues, +4 save against poison.
Alternate Form (Su): Hound archons can assume any canine form (except that of a werewolf or other lycanthrope) as a standard action. This ability is similar to the polymorph self spell but allows only canines.
*While in canine form, a hound archon gains the higher of the two listed speeds and a +4 circumstance bonus to Hide and Wilderness Lore checks.
