A celestial piper is a small bird with red feathers and a yellow-white beak. It loves to sing and is drawn to beautiful music. A celestial piper only needs to hear a song once before it can duplicate the tune with uncanny accuracy.

Celestial pipers try to entrance their enemies with their songs.

Outsider Traits: A celestial piper has darkvision with a range of 60 feet. It cannot be raised or resurrected.

Smite Evil (Su): Once per day, a celestial piper can make a normal attack to deal additional damage equal to it's Hit Die total (maximum of +20) against an evil opponent.

Celestial pipers can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. To do so, the character must be be within one alignment step of lawful good, take the Improved Familiar feat, and be at least a 5th-level caster. An arcane caster with a celestial piper familiar gains a +2 bonus on Perform checks and one other Charisma-based skill of the master's choosing.
