Beseeching her chosen Patron Arkati, the Paladin attempts to call a mantle down upon her, providing a protective, cloaking barrier. This dully illuminated mantle adds +5 to generic Defensive Strength (DS) and enhances the caster's ability to ward off spiritual magic by adding +5 to Spiritual Target Defense (TD).

The Paladin can also call upon her Patron Arkati to cloak another person in the mantle of her faith. The target will receive the base +5 DS/TD bonus and the duration is not cumulative.
