By casting this spell on any normal, non-magical animal the caster turns it into a powerful force of nature. The caster speaks the spell and rubs the animal with a special scented oil. Any normal animal will gain, for the rest of the spells duration, an additional +6 to each of it’s ability scores. Also, for the duration of the spell, it acts as if the celestial or fiendish template (as dictated by the casters alignment, neutral casters may choose which to apply) were applied to the creature. The animal can follow simple commands, but can not learn to speak no matter what it’s current Intelligence score is (unless it is a creature which could possibly learn to speak already, such as a parrot or a dolphin). The animal is also considered to be hasted, gaining an extra partial action each round.
The animal will perform the action until completion, the spells end or it- or the caster’s death. If the animal completes the action or if the spell duration ends then the animal will return to the state in which the caster encountered it, hit points returned to normal. If the animal is killed, it automatically has the spell Reincarnation cast upon it; however, it takes a full week for the spell to take effect (the witch does not pay any XP costs for the reincarnation).
The material component for this spell is scented oil, which is rubbed over the affected animal as the spell is prepared.
