Their visual acuity is unbelievable: They can see detail on objects up to 10 miles away and are said to be able to discern the color of a creature's eyes at 200 paces.

Celestials speak Celestial, Infernal, and Draconic.

Spell-Like Abilities: At will: aid, blur (self only), command, detect magic, dimension door, dispel magic, gust of wind, hold person, light, magic circle against evil (self only), magic missile, and see invisibility; 1/day-lightning bolt. These abilities are as the spells cast by an 8th-level sorcerer (save DC 13 + spell level).

Fear Aura (Su): Once per day an avoral can create an aura of fear in a 20-foot radius. It is otherwise identical with fear as cast by an 8th-level sorcerer (save DC 17).

Lay on Hands (Su): This works just like the paladin's ability, but the avoral can heal as much damage per day as its own undamaged hit point total.

Animal Telepathy (Su): An avoral can mentally communicate with animals as a free action. This works exactly like speak with animals as cast by an 8th-level druid but does not require sound.

True Seeing (Su): This is identical with true seeing as cast by a 14th-level cleric, except that it has personal range and the avoral must concentrate for 1 full round before it takes effect. Thereafter it remains in effect as long as the avoral concentrates on it.

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.

Resistances (Ex): Guardinals have cold and acid resistance 20.

Poison Saves (Ex): 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.

Skills: An avoral's sharp eyes give it a +8 racial bonus to Spot checks.
