A silver (or black) halo appears above your head, and white feathered (or black leathery) wings sprout from your back, revealing a powerful connection to the Outer Planes.

When you manifest this power, you must choose whether to receive abilities from the half-celestial template (MM 144) or the half-fiend template (MM 147). The power gains the good or evil descriptor, respectively. If you are good-aligned, you must choose half-celestial, and if you are evil-aligned, you must choose half-fiend. If your alignment has no good or evil component, you can choose either version of the power.

You psionically reach across the planes and form a bond with a plane appropriate to the chosen template. From this bond, you gain the following effects.

• You receive spell-like abilities appropriate to a half-celestial or half-fiend that has Hit Dice equal to one-half your manifester level. For instance, if you're a 13th-level psion, you receive spell-like abilities as if you were a 6 HD creature with the appropriate template.

• If you chose half-celestial, you gain wings and a fly speed equal to twice your base land speed (good maneuverability).

• If you chose half-fiend, you gain wings and a fly speed equal to your base land speed (average maneuverability).
