Bellflower Tiller

Source Pathfinder #147: Tomorrow Must Burn pg. 75
Bellflower tillers handle most of the ground-level efforts of freeing slaves and escorting them to safety.

Crystal Keeper

Source Pathfinder #148: Fires of the Haunted City pg. 74
In the era before Earthfall, the elven people of Golarion exhibited a wide range of mastery over magic. A sect of elves who venerated the goddess Yuelral first developed the techniques of the crystal keeper, but this tradition has since been long forgotten by most of the world. There are those who still remember, though—PCs can gain access to the crystal keeper archetype from the tragic figure that haunts Jewelgate waystation in “Fires of the Haunted City.”
