Vicious Strike (Ex): Harlech deals double damage on attacks made as readied actions to disrupt spellcasters.

Weapon Bond (Su): Any hit Harlech scores with his composite longbow deals an extra 1d6 points of damage against a spellcaster or a creature with spell-like abilities.

Animal Companion (Ex): Harlech has an owl as an animal companion (see below). Harlech can handle it as a free action and share spells if within 5'.

Auravision (Su): Harlech can see magical auras within 60' as a free action, but can tell only the number of different auras, but not their strength or school.

Blank Thoughts (Ex): Harlech can induce within himself a state of mental absence, thereby becoming immune to mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, patterns, phantasms, and morale effects). He can suppress or resume this ability as a free action. Nondetection cloak (Su): Harlech gains magical protections from divinations equivalent to a nondetection spell from a 5th-level caster, except that it affects only himself and his possessions.

Favored Enemy (Ex): Harlech gains a +4 bonus on his Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival skills against elementals. He gets the same bonus on weapon damage rolls against elementals.

Against evil outsiders, he gains a +2 bonus on these skill checks and on weapon damage rolls.

Magical Defense (Ex): Harlech gains a +3 bonus on saves vs. spells and spell-like effects.

Mind over magic (Su): Harlech can reflect targeted spells back at their casters, as the spell turning spell from a 10th level caster. Wild Empathy (Ex): Harlech can improve the attitude on an animal in the same way a Diplomacy check can improve the attitude of a sentient being.
