Spell Resistance: No
This spell negates possession of a single creature or object targeted by the spell. This includes control in the form of fiendish possession, magic jar, certain curses, and supernatural or spell-like compulsions of 3rd level effect or less.
    When used to negate the effects of certain curses and supernatural or spell-like compulsions the effect is automatic and instantaneous, requiring a casting time of one action. Use of this spell against certain curses may require a minimum caster level for success (as determined by the DM).
    To negate fiendish possession the caster and the fiend engage in a contest of wills. Each round the fiend must make a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 caster level + caster's wisdom modifier). If the fiend fails three subsequent saving throws it is forced from the host body, must return to its own body, is dazed for 1d4 rounds, and cannot attempt a possession for 24 hours. If the fiend succeeds three subsequent saving throws then the fiend has resisted being exorcised, the caster is dazed for 1d4 rounds, and the spell ends without effect. During the contest of wills the caster must continuously spell cast, extolling the fiend to leave the host body. If the caster's concentration is broken then the spell ends without effect.
    A fiend gains a +2 circumstance bonus to saving throws against this spell if its host is evil and an additional +2 circumstance bonus if the alignment of the fiend and its host are the same. Further, a fiend is immune to this spell if its host is willingly allowing the possession.
