It Came From Beyond (Ex): Once per day, when you cast a summoning spell, any one creature you summon is more powerful than normal. The creature gains the advanced creature simple template. If you summon more than one creature with a spell, only one of the summoned creatures gains the advanced creature simple template. A summoned creature that gains the advanced creature simple template in this manner appears unnervingly deformed or unnaturally hideous, bringing with it a whiff of the emptiness of the void. This ability only works on spells you cast as a cleric—it does not work on spellcasting abilities gained from any other spellcasting classes you might have.
Fearful Touch (Su): As a standard action, you can make a melee touch attack against a creature, causing it to experience terrible hallucinations for 1 round. During this time, the creature loses any immunity to fear effects it might possess and takes a –2 penalty on attack rolls made against you. In addition, the creature takes a penalty onWill saves made against fear effects equal to 1/2 your cleric level (minimum –1). This power is a mind-affecting effect. You can use this ability for a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Doors to Everywhere (Ex) As a standard action, the shaman can step through any door and instantly exit through another distant doorway. Regardless of what spell this functions as, it can transport only you, and both your departure and arrival spaces must be adjacent to a door or similar opening. Initially, this functions as per jester's jaunt. At 9th level, the shaman can use this ability as per dimension door. At 14th level, the shaman can use this ability as per tree stride (treating all doors as generic coniferous trees). You can use this ability three times per day, plus one additional time per day at 12th level and at 20th level.

Backstory in brief:
Teodor grew up poor but witty and ever curious. A fast-talking hedonist, he fancied himself an up-and-coming rake or conman. But the partying eventually took its toll, and he found himself in the depths of addiction. The night he bottomed out, the last time he took Shiver, he had a religious revelation. All things end. Everything. Even the torment and the pain. Groetus, the mysterious moon in Pharasma's graveyard, the God that will one day draw the curtain on existence, appeared to him. All things must end.
This, as you might imagine, left quite a mark on young Teodor. Some think him mad, some eccentric, and perhaps a few find him charmingly devout. He's definitely not the man he once was, but his endgame remains mysterious. He seems to preach about the end of all things, but he has been seen helping the less fortunate as well. One thing is for certain: he would quite like to meet the man that set him on his current path, and to thank him in a very special way.
Important People: Teodor is long estranged from his family, including sisters Cristina and Anca. He has no idea what they're up to at this point. He has various street contacts ...he's almost a local celebrity, the man who preaches the end of the world with wit and a smile ...almost comforting.
Lifestyle: He's been living on donations and friendly faces for a bit now as he gathered information.
