These insects have been touched with celestial heritage. Their white carapaces are embroidered with gold patterns that illuminate an area with a 20-foot radius. The luminosity of the husks lasts for 1d6 days after removal from the beetle.
Celestial Giant Fire Beetles are quick to attack those they suspect to be evil. They usually fight in groups and try to use their numbers to flank opponents to boost their chances of hitting.
Smite Evil (Su): Once per day a celestial creature can make a normal melee attack to deal extra damage equal to its HD (maximum of +20) against an evil foe.
