Celestial Bloodline

( Dragon Compendium)


One of your distant ancestors was a good outsider. The characteristics you display might depend in part on the kind of celestial heritage you have.

Descendants of devas or archons tend to be very decisive—quick to judge and quick to act. Characters
with couatl or lillend ancestors are often physically beautiful, and they tend to favor snakes and other reptiles as familiars. The most common sources of celestial blood, however, are minor good deities or the avatars of more powerful beings. A sorcerer descended from such a line can be very passionate about his faith, whether he follows his ancestor's religion or not.

Characters with the Celestial Bloodline feat are usually good-aligned, although not always. Their yearning for adventure stems either from a desire to aid others, an innate need to combat evil, or both. As such, celestial- blooded characters tend to focus their spell selections on good- or neutral-aligned spells that aid others.

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list.
1st—Protection from evil 2nd—Daylight
3rd—Magic circle against evil 4th—Rainbow pattern 5th—Dismissal
6th—Guards and wards
9th—Summon monster IX (good outsiders only)


If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted her access to this feat, she gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if she learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Characters with this feat cannot learn or cast spells with the evil descriptor, and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat.
