Eternal Devotion (Ex) The Champion In Ruby serves his Queen exclusively, gaining +4 bonus to saving throws against non-harmless fear, charm, and compulsion effects. He also gains ferocity universal monster rule. He can maintain his bloodrage while defending his Queen without expending daily rounds of bloodrage. He can enter bloodrage while seeing his Queen being attacked even when fatigued or exhausted, suppressing either condition for as long as she is attacked.

Inured To Elements (Ex) Faerzon andal fey nature makes them much more resistant to heat and cold than most mortals, granting them range of protection against temperatures similar to endure elements spell.

Ivory Death (Ex) Dying faerzon andal slowly transform into an ivory-like statues, gaining hardness equal to the absolute value of their negative hit points.

The Champion In Ruby With The Emerald Blade is the most loyal servant of The Queen In Ruby With The Eyes Of Emerald, her marshal, her castellan, and her guardian. He is bound to her by inviolable oaths tempered with the name he forsake when he entered her services.

He despises kalophages and he has nothing but cold disdain for the shells of their victims they bring to fill the ranks of the Queen's courtiers for the dedication of the later is false, brought by predations of the former. A mere suggestion that his servitude to the Queen might not differ much is sure way to provoke his rage and incite him into pursuing the offender relentlessly until either one of them dies. Only a direct order from the Queen could pause such vendetta, though it's uncertain if even she could order the Champion to forgive the offender.
