Special Abilities

Holographic Projector (Ex) Trent can project a holographic image into an adjacent square that acts like a non-magical major image.

Micro-Missiles (Ex) Trent's left shoulder contains a launcher of micro-missiles. Launching or directing a missile is a swift action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity and the missile flies up to 100 feet per round. Only one micro-missile can be active at the same time. It can be detonated as a free action, when it reaches preset location, or when it is destroyed (AC 23, hardness 5, 2 hit points, Ref save +5, evasion). Trent can't launch another missile until the beginning of its turn following the detonation. Detonating micro-missile inflicts 4d6 fire and 4d6 bludgeoning damage within 30-ft. radius burst. A successful Reflex saving throw (DC 18) halves the damage for anyone except the creature that destroyed the micro-missile with a melee attack. Trent has a load of forty of micro-missiles, and its internal fabricator can replenish them at the rate of four missiles per hour as long as it has access to the raw materials. The saving throw DC is Constitution-based and includes +2 racial bonus.

Reconstruction (Ex) Trent has an extensive self-repair systems that allow it to heal a number of hit points equal to its HD each hour. When Trent is reduced to 0 or less hit points by an effect that does not utterly destroys its body (such as disintegrate), its reconstruction systems rebuild it in 1d10 days using available surrounding matter, though lack of suitable amount of metal and other minerals can slow down the process to weeks or years, while the effects that suppress technology or almost complete lack of surrounding solid matter (such as being suspended in void of space or a plane of air) can suspend reconstruction indefinitely. When a full reconstruction occurs, Trent may undergo significant personality changes, including exchange of some of its feats and its Knowledge (nature) and Profession (gardening) skill.

Universal Translator (Ex) After listening to a language for an hour, Trent can learn that language in place of one of his existing languages. It can know up to twelve languages at the same time (one per rank in Linguistics skill). Its native language was originally hard-coded in its read-only memory but it was lost during one of the reconstructions.

X-Laser (Ex) Trent has integrated x-laser with range increment of 200 feet in its right shoulder. This powerful weapon is not only capable of passing through transparent force effects (such as wall of force) but also burning through targets and hitting multiple targets in line unless it fails to penetrate hardness, fire resistance, or fire immunity of closer target.

Trent Aubergine Svietlorob XIII is an ancient automaton that found its true purpose in gardening. While it does not speak much of its past—as many of its memories were purged or lost during its many reconstructions—it can be inferred that it was created as a weapon of war, as it retains many of its original functions, even if it no longer desires to fight.

Despite its peaceful ways it can still be swayed to serve in military capacity, if reluctantly. It had participated in combat operations in the past, for a payment in land to garden, seeds of exotic plants, rare soils, and gardening tools. It had also been coerced by local authorities into "volunteering" when threatened with anti-gardening ordinances being enacted if it refused and provoked into a devastating rampage when its gardens were destroyed...
