Find Master (Su): No matter the distance, as long as it is on the same plane, a blade guardian can find its master.
Guard (Ex): A blade guardian moves swiftly to defend its master by its side, blocking blows and disrupting foes. All attacks against the master take a -2 penalty if the blade guardian is adjacent.
Spell Storing (Sp): A blade guardian can store one spell of 3rd level or lower that is cast into it by another creature. It uses this spell when commanded or when a predetermined situation arises. Once this spell is used, it can store another spell (or the same spell).
Blade guardians are relentless combatants, striking at foes with their whirling blade-arms and rarely straying far from their masters.
