Cemented Mind (Ex)

A soulbound shell can never change its known or prepared spells.

Soul Focus (Su)

The soul bound to the shell lives within a gem inside its chest. As long as this soul focus remains intact, it can be used to animate another shell, at the same cost as creating a new soulbound shell and retains its personality and memories. A soul focus has hardness 8, 12 hit points, and a break DC of 20.

Spells (Su)

A spellbound shell casts spells as a 12th-level mystic or technomancer but does not gain any other class abilities.

Susceptible to Mind-Affecting Effects (Ex)

A soulbound shell is not immune to mind-affecting effects.


Environment any
Organization solitary or workshop (1 plus 2–8 other constructs)

A soulbound shell is the perfected version of an arcane synthetic being, binding soul to a statuesque form while retaining the mystical connections that allow the soul to retain the spellcasting ability it had in life.
