This effect occurs before the dweomercat is affected by the triggering spell. The effect lasts for 1 minute, until the dweomercat uses this ability again, or until the dweomercat Dismisses the effect, whichever comes first.

Dweomer Leap [two-actions] (arcane, conjuration, teleportation) Prerequisites The dweomercat has at least one dimension door spell remaining; Effect The dweomercat casts dimension door, then can make a melee Strike against one creature adjacent to it at the end of its teleport. If the dweomercat ends its teleport adjacent to a creature under an ongoing spell effect or who cast a spell since the dweomercat’s last turn, this does not expend a casting of dimension door.

Pounce [one-action] The dweomercat Strides and makes a Strike at the end of that movement. If the dweomercat began this action hidden, it remains hidden until after this ability’s Strike.

About

Dweomercats are magically gifted felines from the world of the fey, where they prey upon other creatures and feed upon their primal energy. They are sometimes encountered in areas of the Material Plane where the veil to the world of the fey is thin, or in regions where magic has been irreparably warped. Dweomercats are famous for their ability to twist the metaphorical strings of spells cast on or near them, which they can transform into their own defensive magic or tap into to instantly teleport across the battlefield.

Particularly powerful spellcasters sometimes take young dweomercat cubs as familiars. Their independence and flightiness makes dweomercats somewhat unreliable allies, though, so one is never sure whether their bond with a dweomercat will be long-lasting or a temporary affair.
