Blade of Justice [two-actions] The planetar makes a greatsword Strike against a target it detects as evil. If the target is evil, the Strike deals three extra weapon damage dice and deals 1d6 persistent good damage to the target. The planetar can convert all the physical damage from the attack into good damage.

Change Shape [one-action] (concentrate, divine, polymorph, transmutation) The planetar can take on the appearance of any Small or Medium humanoid. This doesn’t change their Speed or Strikes.

Holy Armaments (divine, evocation) Any weapon gains the effect of a holy property rune while a planetar wields it.

The beings of righteous fury known as planetars are known to be the least patient of angels. They exist to destroy evil that cannot be redeemed, and they often leave prolonged dialog to other angels. Of course, no planetar ignores the importance of diplomacy, but they know that others among the angelic hosts are better suited to that task, while they focus on the larger picture. In angelic armies, planetars serve as commanders or generals. They stand at least 9 feet tall and weigh over 500 pounds.

Planetars know pathways to travel between many planes of existence, and they use these frequently to deliver messages, warnings, and ultimatums to those whose actions have attracted angelic concern. If a situation can be resolved with swift on-the-spot justice, a planetar takes that route in hopes of staving off an escalation of violence.
