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 the angel. 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 equals angel’s HD). This aura can be dispelled, but the angel can create it again as a free action on its next turn. (The defensive benefits from the circle are not included in an angel’s statistics block.)
Tongues (Su): All angels can speak with any creature that has a language, as though using a tongues spell (caster level equal to angel’s Hit Dice). This ability is always active.

You see before you a creature no taller than a larger human, maybe an orc, but more like an elf in stature. It wields a hammer in one hand and holds a shield in the other. Its face seems far more perfect than any human's, even any elf's, and it has large, white-feathered wings which it carries with ease and grace, and which, in turn, carry it in kind.
Knowledge Check DC Result 16 This is a cometar angel, a low-ranking angel. 21 Cometars are capable of making powerful dive attacks with their hammer, unlike most creatures. 26 Cometars move much slower than most other angels - about as fast as one might expect a winged human to fly. 31 Cometars are usually used as scouts for the angelic army, though they are also capable of subduing weaker demons, and mortal soldiers. 36 (Reveal the cometar's monster entry)

*The Lunar's glaive allows it to attack foes 15 or 20 feet away, but it can't use it to attack foes within its natural reach and must resort to using its slam attacks.
This is not a creature of the shadows, but they serve it well - it appears to be a being of good, though good does not always mean savory. It has the look on its face of one who has seen too much, and yet it still moves with poetic grace and murderous intent at once.
Knowledge Check DC Result 30 This is a lunar angel, an angelic assassin. 35 Lunars are capable of striking at vital organs the same way a rogue does. 40 Lunars move quickly, and always carry the right weapon for the job. 45 Lunars are specially tasked to kill one specific enemy or group of enemies. Their weapons and spells are chosen in advance to kill that foe, and they will retreat when their task is complete. 50 (Reveal the lunar's monster entry)
Lunar angels are the quiet assassins of the angelic hierarchy. They wield weapons of the correct bane and alignment for the creature they're trying to kill. They tend to be neutral good so that they can wield axiomatic or anarchic weapons without penalty. Each glaive is perfectly made for the Lunar destined to wield it, and they resize only to match the wielding Lunar's size. They also carry tools for breaking into their target's abode if needed.
Change Shape (Su)
Lunars can assume the form of any small or medium humanoid.
Sneak Attack (Ex)

Lunars cast spells as an 18th-level cleric. They usually have the trickery domain and one other. They prepare spells for each individual encounter.
Reselect Domains (Ex)
Lunars do not have fixed domains. Whenever they prepare spells, they choose new domains from which to prepare spells. They usually choose trickery, and one other.

A cosmic angel wields the incarnations of holy power (melee two-handed) and divine might (two ranged one-handed), which are treated as manufactured weapons, though the damage they deal . Their attacks with any weapon are treated as epic and good for purposes of damage reduction. If they're lawful or chaotic, their attacks are also treated as that alignment.
Knowledge Check DC Result 45 This is a cosmic angel, a creature far more powerful than any other angel. A platoon of cosmics could seriously threaten their divine master. 50 Cosmics have access to spells on request, and have abilities that they have no right to wield. 55 Cosmics use epic spells to slay their enemies instantly. Those who are immune to such effects may fall victim to the cosmic's final sacrifice. 60 Cosmics actually have a single ability inherited from divinity, though they are themselves not quite divine. 65 (Reveal the cosmic's monster entry)
Change Shape (Su)
A cosmic can assume the form of any humanoid.
Cosmic Angels can cast spells as a cleric of their own level except as noted below. They know the following epic spells: Momento Mori (DC 45), Ultimate Blessing of the Faithful (DC 35)*, Vengeful Gaze of God (DC 35)
*Heal seed, dispels ability drain and negative levels gained within 52 weeks, 1-action casting time,
Unlike clerics, Cosmic Angels do not prepare spells. They simply cast spells off the cleric spell list in a similar manner to a beguiler (or a sorcerer who knew all the spells on his spell list). However, this does not allow them to cast any epic spell in existence: they are still restricted to the spells on their list. While the Cosmic given above doesn't have any metamagic feats, Cosmics who do have metamagic feats can apply them spontaneously without increasing casting time.
Cosmic angels can take feats without meeting their prerequisites and don't lose the benefit of feats they don't qualify for. The example cosmic angel given above uses this to attain Perfect Two-Weapon Fighting.
Many Cosmic Angels have different feats, some taking metamagic feats and Improved Spell Capacity to cast even more powerful spells.
Cosmic Angels are nearly gods in their own right, and inherit a single Salient Divine Ability from the god they serve, or a Salient Divine Ability that matches their beliefs or abilities if they serve none (or the god doesn't have any, or only has ones that the Cosmic doesn't qualify for). They are treated as rank 0 when determining the effects of these abilities, so some are unhelpful to them. The sample cosmic has the Gift of Life Salient Divine Ability.
