If Hyperion is facing enough opponents to present a potential thread if unified, Hyperion will use his Tricks of Light in order to break them apart using prepared and extended mirage arcanas and hallucinatory terrains. Once scattered, he then hunts them down one by one, incinerating them until there is nothing left. Hyperion prefers distance combat to melee (although he is equally competent at both), and will either choose to burn his opponents using rays of light or use enlarged spells long before throwing a punch.
Spell-Like Abilities (Sp) At will: alter self, analyze dweomer, commune with nature, cure critical wounds, eyebite, freedom of movement, fly, fog cloud, produce flame, protection from energy, read magic, remove curse, sanctuary, sending, speak with animals, soften earth and stone, speak with plants, summon monster VI, greater teleport, wind wall. 3/day: antilife shell, astral projection, greater dispel magic, greater scrying, invisibility purge, plane shift.
Caster level 53rd; save DC 22 + spell level.
The save DCs are Charisma-based.
The Burning Dawn (Ex) Hyperion is continually surrounded by an aura of ferociously powerful light. Living creatures that can see Hyperion within 200 feet must make a Fort save DC 53 or else become permanently blind. Creatures within 100 feet of Hyperion additionally take 4d10 points of damage from the intense heat which he continually generates; half of this damage is cosmic in nature, and should Hyperion strike an opponent with his powerful fists, they take an additional 2d6 points of fire damage. Hyperion may suppress or restore his ability to burn all things with his light as a free action. He will almost never do so except in the presence of Theia or Cronus, who commands this gesture of respect on Hyperions part through the fact that Hyperion knows that Cronus will have little hesitation to beat him into unconsciousness otherwise. Anyone who strikes Hyperion with a weapon must additionally make a Ref save DC 53 or else their weapon is simply melted or incinerated through contact with Hyperions blazing body; only artifacts are immune to this particular effect.
Hyperion may additionally chose to attack his foes with rays of light as a ranged touch attack; each ray of light that he generates in this manner may be up to 150 feet long and does 20d10 points of damage, half of which is also cosmic in nature. (Ref save DC 53 for half damage).
Beings can defend themselves from the destructive effects of The Burning Dawn through epic spells based on the ward seed, but other forms of mortal magic are ineffective at providing a defense against Hyperions destructive power.
Tricks of Light (Sp) Although Hyperion has been cast down from his time when he was worshipped as the Patron of Light upon thousands of Prime Material Planes, he has still retained a significant measure of his former prowess. This prowess is represented through Hyperions ability to perform Tricks of Light.
Through manipulating light itself, Hyperion may simulate any illusionist spell that produces a visual effect. As a result, Hyperion may select all spells that qualify as part of his Clerical spell selection.
Hyperion possesses Divine Rank 0, and to those few remaining worshippers that he has, he retains the capability of granting spells from the domains of Sun and Fire, although due to his disdain for them, he rarely bothers to do so. Furthermore, Hyperion is treated as a unique creature with regards to summoning attempts like the spell gate.
Clerical Spells (Sp) 6/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/7+1/7+1/6+1/6+1/6+1/5+1. Hyperion has access to the Evil, Fire, and Sun domains.
Hyperion casts his Clerical spells at 35th level, except for Evil spells which he casts at 36th level.
Saving throws against Hyperions Clerical spells are DC 22 + spell level.
The saving throw DCs are Wisdom-based.
Hyperion may command fire-based creatures and rebuke water-based creatures, outsiders, and undead 14/day. Hyperions rebuke/command check is 1d20 + 17 and Hyperions check to dispel turning is 2d6 + 46.
