Remote Defense (Su)

Source Drift Crisis pg. 47
As a move action, you toss your shield at an ally within 30 feet, telekinetically directing the shield’s movement. Your ally gains the shield’s bonus to AC as if they were wielding it. If you instead activate this discipline as a standard action, you also align the shield against a specific enemy, granting the ally the aligned shield bonus against that creature. The ally doesn’t need a hand free to gain these benefits, and they take no proficiency-based penalties from the shield. While this discipline is active, you don’t gain benefits from wielding the shield, and you must keep one hand free to direct and control the shield. At the beginning of your next turn, the shield flies back to your hand as long as it’s not restrained or in another creature’s possession.
