It is a slender figure made of polished steel, burnished brass, and golden light, its form reminiscent of a clockwork angel with wings made of long metal blades. Its left shoulder is burdened with a strange turret-like protrusion crackling with empyrean energies.

Fall Not To Evil (Su) A steel angel is strangely energized when fighting forces of evil. It gains a cumulative fast healing 1 for each creature with aura of evil or evil subtype within 60 feet.
Immunity To Magic (Ex) A steel angel is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.
- Spells and spell-like abilities with the evil descriptor deal 1 point of damage per spell level or their normal damage whichever is higher, though they cause no other effects on steel angels.
- Spells and spell-like abilities with the good descriptor heal the steel angel for 1 point per spell level or their normal healing whichever is higher.
- Disintegrate turns the steel angel incorporeal for one round, making it appear as a radiant version of oneself made of celestial energies. The incorporeal steel angel can still use its rapture gun to attack corporeal creatures without penalties.
- Banishment, dismissal, and other effects that expel extraplanar creatures still work to abjure steel angels, though they have no other effects.
Steel angels are marvels of empyrean mechanics, divine constructs made of otherworldly materials powered by celestial spirits. They are powerful tools for good forces, capable of withstanding many of fiendish afflictions and powers while energized by mere presence of nearby evil.
