All of the following are class features of the Eternal Guardian.
Spellcasting or Manifesting: At each level, you gain new spells (or powers) per day and an increase in caster (or manifester) level (and spells (or powers) known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting (or manifesting) class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting (or manifesting) class before becoming a Eternal Guardian, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Guardian Instinct (Ex): When within 30 ft. of it master, a Eternal Guardian gain a moral bonus to Initiative equal to his eternal guardian class level. The master gain the same amount as a bonus to AC.
Fearless (Ex): When within 30 ft. of it master, a Eternal Guardian gain a moral bonus to Initiative equal to his eternal guardian class level. The master gain the same amount as a bonus to AC.
Take the Blow (Ex): As an immediate action, a 2nd level Eternal Guardian may make herself the target of an attack or targeted effect that targets any creature within her reach.
Dimension Protection (Su): As an immediate action, a 3rd level Eternal Guardian may teleport (as dimension door spell) next to his master. He may use this ability in conjunction with take the blow ability. He can use this ability at will but he must be within 100 ft. of his master to use it.
Improved Take the Blow (Ex): At 4th, an eternal guardian may use take the blow as a free action (allowing him to take a full attack).
Ultimate Devotion (Ex): A 5th level eternal guardian may even mock death, his devotion being so strong that he can overcome death for a time. He can survive for a number of rounds equaling twice his Eternal Guardian level when he is at -10 or lower. Once the duration expires, the eternal guardian dies or falls unconscious. If she was brought to 1 or higher by his fast healing, the Eternal Guardian may remain conscious even after the duration expires.
If an Eternal Guardian's master dies, he loses all benefits of the class (except hit point, base attack bonus and etc) until her master is raised from the dead. If her master is permanently killed he may tie with another master.
