Lesser Paraelemental of Sun

Second edition AD&D failed to make paraelementals for Dark Sun, so I will be creating some. I've decided to start with the lesser paraelementals and eventually get to the greater paraelementals.
I'm continuing with the lesser paraelemental of sun. Feedback is welcome.
Goodness, Gracious...

Lesser Sun Paraelemental
A lesser sun paraelemental resembles a miniature sun with glowing red eyes and mouth. Their diameter is equal to their hit dice in feet. Lesser sun paraelementals enjoy absorbing sunlight during the hottest parts of the day and burning things that block sunlight.
In combat, the lesser sun paraelemental uses its heat rays to burn opponents with super heated air. These rays have a range equal to the lesser sun paraelementals hit dice in feet.
Lesser sun paraelementals may forgo their attack and instead flare brightly and attempt to blind their foes. Foes looking at the lesser sun paraelemental when is flares must succeed at a saving throw vs death magic or be blinded for 1d6 rounds. Lesser sun paraelementals can be struck only by +1 or better weapons, and they’re immune to the effects of heat and flame.
All damage against sun or fire-based creatures is automatically halved. In addition, lesser sun paraelementals take 2 points of damage for each round they are in total darkness, magical or otherwise.
