Your knowledge of your own biology gives you the ability to attempt a dramatic trick to survive a knockout blow.

Prerequisites: Int 17

Benefit: You attempt to survive a knockout blow by taking the strike to a less critical part of your anatomy. When damage from a weapon attack would reduce you to 0 Hit Points, you can attempt a Reflex save with a DC equal to 10 + 1-1/2 times the attacker’s CR. If you succeed at the Reflex save, the attack instead reduces you to 1 HP. You can’t use this ability again until you spend 1 Resolve Point to regain Stamina Points after a 10-minute rest.
