Shadow Split (Su)

When a shadow agent is slain or is reduced to 0 hit points, a terrible curse activates. After 1d4 rounds, the agent’s shadow detaches from the agent’s body as an animated spirit to attack the agent’s foes. The accursed shadow also detaches immediately if the shadow agent is Stunned”>stunned for more than 1 round.

Activation of the shadow curse immediately kills the shadow agent if it isn’t already dead.

Suppressed Emotion (Ex)

A shadow agent gains a +4 saving throw against effects that cause fear or rage or otherwise affect emotions. They cannot benefit from morale bonuses.


Environment any
Organization solitary or patrol (2–6)
