Spells Erebus can use arcane spells as a 29th-level wizard or divine spells as a 29th-level cleric, from the cleric list and from the Darkness and Night domains. He will also possess the knowledge of at least three epic spells and the means by which to develop them, though he may not have done so himself.

Erebus’s natural weapons are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
