These intelligent bird-like creatures look exactly like normal doves. They are thought to be related to the Blink Vink in origin. Dimension Doves are well suited for domestication and are sometimes used for mail delivery or similar tasks.

Combat
Dimension Doves always try to avoid combat, either by flying away or by using their dimension door or teleport abilities.
Dimension Door (Su): A Dimension Dove can teleport as Dimension Door cast by an 13th-level sorcerer, once per round as a free action. The ability affects only the Dimension Dove and any small items it might carry or might be attached to it (such as mail). The Dimension Dove never appears withing a solid object and can act immediately after teleporting.
Teleport (Su): A Dimension Dove can teleport as Teleport cast by an 13th-level sorcerer, once per round as a standard action. The ability affects only the Dimension Dove and any small items it might carry or might be attached to it (such as mail). The Dimension Dove never appears withing a solid object and can act immediately after teleporting.
Teleport without error (Su): A Dimension Dove can teleport as Teleport cast by an 13th-level sorcerer, once per day as a full round action. The ability affects only the Dimension Dove and any small items it might carry or might be attached to it (such as mail). The Dimension Dove never appears withing a solid object and can act immediately after teleporting.
Direction Sense (Ex): A Dimension Dove can determine the direcion of its home by concentrating for one round, without needing to make any check. It can also discern the direction of any other locale it is familiar with, by making an Intuit Direction check at the following DCs depending on the familiarity: viewed once (40), seen casually (35), studied carefully (30), very familiar (25). Furthermore, the Dimension Dove receives a +14 racial bonus to Intuit Direction checks.
