With the flick of its wrist, the diminutive creature creates a glowing blade of light. With a smirk and a nod, it seems to invite you to approach and test the deadliness of the blade in its hand. Adherents of Javan, the blade mentats use mind blades as their preferred form of combat. More militant than many of the other mentats, the blade mentat does not shy away from battle, instead viewing it as another means to perfect its ability with the mind blade.
Smaller than many of the other psionic entities that inhabit the outer planes, blade mentats stand just over 3 feet tall and weigh in at around 60 pounds. More massive than the other variety of mentats, the blade mentats, while still diminutive, are not weak. Their skin, hair, and eye color are typically shades of red, one of the typical colors of combat.
Blade mentats speak Celestial, Draconic, Infernal, and Abyssal. In addition, they are treated as being always under the effect of a tongues spell.
As followers of Javan, the blade mentats utilize more martial combat tactics than those who worship the manifesting godminds. There are few situations where a blade mentat does not view the mind blade as the perfect response. Unlike other mentats, the blade mentat is well versed in utilizing the mind blade.
Mind blade: Blade mentats are able to manifest a mind blade as a soulknife of a level equal to their hit dice, including the ability to charge the mind blade with psychic strike or to throw the mind blade.
