Legends speak of an ancient god now dead, known as Aethera. Twin sister of the sun god Pelor, Aethera was the goddess of purifying flames, a powerful warrior who fought the archdevils and demon lords with her sacred flames. Eventually, the fiends were driven near the point of extinction by her crusade, and joined together to plot against her. Though their multifarious schemes inevitably failed, they were eventually approached by an Ultroloth, who proposed a cunning plan. They created a being of pure malevolence, a hybrid of tanar’ri, baatezu, and yugoloth. Though this ultimate fiend was still no match for the goddess, it was empowered with a drop of blood stolen from the one being that was Aethera’s match—Pelor himself. The maleficent demigod ambushed Aethera, and with a sword of soul-devouring thianun, slew her. Pelor mourned his sister, and cremated her remains in the Elemental Plane of Fire itself. As his fallen tears comingled with the ashes of her corpse, they gave rise to a host of angels, each one bearing a fragment of Aethera’s spirit—the Aethereal angels. The Aethereals, aided by Pelor, first destroyed the demigod who had struck down Aethera, and then struck down each demon lord, archdevil, or ultroloth who had been part of the conspiracy. Since then, they have served as agents of righteous wrath to any good-aligned deity that calls upon them. They appear as beautiful women with opalescent skin and luminous, ethereal wings.

Fiery Wrath (Su)
An Aethereal can call upon sacred fire to immolate its foes. Its fiery wrath may take on the form of a ray of fire with a range of 200 ft., an 80-ft. line, a 40-ft. cone, or a 20-ft. radius burst within a range of 150 ft. The fiery wrath deals 10d6 damage, half of which is fire damage and half of which is sacred damage not affected by resistance. The ray form of the attack requires a ranged touch attack to hit, while the other forms allow a DC 24 Reflex save for half damage. The save is Charisma-based. Once an Aethereal has used this ability, it must wait 5 rounds before it can use it again.

Smoldering Fire (Su)
Any creature hit by an Aethereal’s slam attack or by any weapon it wields must make a DC 22 Reflex save or burst into sacred flames. Each round for 5 rounds, they take 3d6 damage, half of which is fire damage and half of which is sacred damage not affected by resistance. The fire cannot be put out by any mundane means. The DC is Charisma-based.

Spell-Like Abilities (Sp)
At will—aid, continual flame, detect evil, dispel evil (DC 21), enthrall (DC 18), hallow, holy aura, holy smite (DC 20), mark of justice, true seeing. 3/day—blade barrier (DC 22), dismissal (DC 20), divine power. 1/day—holy word (DC 23), righteous might.

Change Shape (Su)
An Aethereal can assume the form of any Small or Medium humanoid.

Master of All Fire (Su)
Command of all flame is given over to the Aethereals. Whenever a character within the range of an Aethereal’s protective aura would be dealt fire damage, the angel may choose to negate that damage. In addition, whenever an Aethereal is targeted by a spell or ability that deals fire damage, it may turn that ability on its user, as with spell turning, without any spell level restrictions.

Protective Aura (Su)
Against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures, this ability provides a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saving throws to anyone within 20 feet of a Aethereal. Otherwise, it functions as a magic circle against evil effect and a lesser globe of invulnerability, both with a radius of 20 feet, caster level 13th. This aura can be dispelled, but the angel can create it again as a free action on its next turn.

Sanctified Presence (Ex)
An Aethereal and all good-aligned creatures within the range of its protective aura are immune to disease, fear, poison, and any effect that could be removed with the remove curse spell.

Tongues (Su)
An Aethereal can speak with any creature that has a language, as though using a tongues spell, caster level 13th. This ability is always active.

Yup. Just used the standard wording from the angels' change shape ability.
