Defender’s Reflexes (Ex) Gains Combat Reflexes as a bonus feat and can use his Strength modifier instead of his Dexterity modifier to determine the number of additional attacks of opportunity he can make per round.
Obligation (Ex) A high guardian can spend 1 minute of focused concentration each day to select a single ally as his obligation, vowing to keep that person alive for that day. Once he has chosen, he can’t change his obligation until the following day. If his obligation dies, the high guardian must atone for 1 week before he can select another obligation.
Right Hand (Ex) A high guardian can take a 5-foot step as an immediate action, as long as he ends this movement adjacent to his obligation. If he takes this step, he cannot take a 5-foot step during his next turn and his total movement is reduced by 5 feet during his next turn.
Vorens is the faithful butler of Lord Ivran Xerysis. Though he always shows proper deference to his lord, their way of interaction seems oddly informal at times. Ivran seems to rely on him for a great deal more than simply keeping the household in order.
