Special Abilities
Paired Protectors (Su): When two or more foo creatures are within 30 feet of one another, they both gain a +4 luck bonus to their armor class.
Stony Defense (Su): A foo lion can harden its skin to unyielding stone as an immediate action (5/day). It gains hardness 8 until the end of its next turn, but its speed is reduced by 10 feet for the same duration.
Freeze (Ex): A foo lion can hold itself so still it appears to be a statue. A foo creature that uses freeze can take 10 on its Stealth check to hide in plain sight as a stone statue.

Foo lions are benevolent guardian spirits that hail originally from the Wilderlands, where they spend their days cavorting in the idyllic wilds or aiding that realm's inhabitants, particularly the agathions, in their work. Yet while they come from the Wilderlands, foo lions are often encountered on Porphyra as well, for they are favorite conjurations of many cultures and religions.
