Once per day as a reaction when you fail a Reflex saving throw against an attack or spell that deals damage, if your drone is within 10 feet of the line between you and the damaging effect, you can direct your drone to interpose itself between you and the source of that damage. Your drone takes the damage the attack would have dealt to you, and you take no damage. If your drone is reduced to 0 Hit Points, it is destroyed until you repair it or build a new drone. You must have the drone option of the artificial intelligence class feature to choose this trick.
