About Ash Windfinder

Even small clothes hang loosely on the man you see before you, his face gaunt like that of a wolf, dark grey eyes flashing as sharp as an eagle's. He stalks about with a lithe grace like that of a leopard scaling a steep mountainside, pointed elven ears and hair the color of sea-foam green sit on a rugged Elven head. The man eyes hold the experience of many years but his face looks young, hardly "boyish", but you can sense youth in this man. Looking out of place in the city, the general green and brown coloring of his garb indicates he spends much of his time in the wilderness.

Ranger Favored Enemies Type
Favored Enemy (Ex): At 1st level, a ranger selects a creature type from the ranger favored enemies table. He gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks against creatures of his selected type. Likewise, he gets a +2 bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against them. A ranger may make Knowledge skill checks untrained when attempting to identify these creatures.
At 5th level and every five levels thereafter (10th, 15th, and 20th level), the ranger may select an additional favored enemy. In addition, at each such interval, the bonus against any one favored enemy (including the one just selected, if so desired) increases by +2.
If the ranger chooses humanoids or outsiders as a favored enemy, he must also choose an associated subtype, as indicated on the table below. (Note that there are other types of humanoid to choose from—those called out specifically on the table below are merely the most common.) If a specific creature falls into more than one category of favored enemy, the ranger's bonuses do not stack; he simply uses whichever bonus is higher.
Track (Ex): A ranger adds half his level (minimum 1) to Survival skill checks made to follow or identify tracks.
Wild Empathy (Ex): A ranger can improve the initial attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person (see Using Skills). The ranger rolls 1d20 and adds his ranger level and his Charisma bonus to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly.
To use wild empathy, the ranger and the animal must be within 30 feet of one another under normal visibility conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time.
The ranger can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a –4 penalty on the check.
Combat Style Feat (Ex): At 2nd level, a ranger must select one of two combat styles to pursue: archery or two-weapon combat. The ranger's expertise manifests in the form of bonus feats at 2nd, 6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th level. He can choose feats from his selected combat style, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites.
If the ranger selects archery, he can choose from the following list whenever he gains a combat style feat: Far Shot, Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, and Rapid Shot. At 6th level, he adds Improved Precise Shot and Manyshot to the list. At 10th level, he adds Pinpoint Targeting and Shot on the Run to the list.
If the ranger selects two-weapon combat, he can choose from the following list whenever he gains a combat style feat: Double Slice, Improved Shield Bash, Quick Draw, and Two-Weapon Fighting. At 6th level, he adds Improved Two-Weapon Fighting and Two-Weapon Defense to the list. At 10th level, he adds Greater Two-Weapon Fighting and Two-Weapon Rend to the list.
The benefits of the ranger's chosen style feats apply only when he wears light, medium, or no armor. He loses all benefits of his combat style feats when wearing heavy armor. Once a ranger selects a combat style, it cannot be changed.
Endurance: A ranger gains Endurance as a bonus feat at 3rd level.
Favored Terrain (Ex): At 3rd level, a ranger may select a type of terrain from the Favored Terrains table. The ranger gains a +2 bonus on initiative checks and Knowledge (geography), Perception, Stealth, and Survival skill checks when he is in this terrain. A ranger traveling through his favored terrain normally leaves no trail and cannot be tracked (though he may leave a trail if he so chooses).
At 8th level and every five levels thereafter, the ranger may select an additional favored terrain. In addition, at each such interval, the skill bonus and initiative bonus in any one favored terrain (including the one just selected, if so desired), increases by +2.
If a specific terrain falls into more than one category of favored terrain, the ranger's bonuses do not stack; he simply uses whichever bonus is higher.
You are trained in using your agility in melee combat, as opposed to brute strength.
Benefit: With a light weapon, rapier, whip, or spiked chain made for a creature of your size category, you may use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on attack rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty applies to your attack rolls.
Special: Natural weapons are considered light weapons.
You are especially accurate when making ranged attacks against close targets.

Ash had spent much of his time in the Verduran Forest, an apprentice to the Wildwood Druids of the area. Passed around among the group, Ash was not the most gifted in the ways of the druid, he had another calling. Running off for hours at end in the forest, he followed the animals and hunted for his food, often time bringing back an evening meal for the druids.
One night, after coming back from such a hunt, the druids were with a man, his name was Professor Petros Lorrimor. Lorrimor had been looking for a guide in the area, someone who could help him navigate the forest, for he had become lost and couldn't find his way out. Ash and the man stayed together for some time, for Ash had never had anyone truly need him. Delighted by countless stories, the men grew closer as they shared camp. Ash had learned that his family, who he didn't know much of, had become refugees during the reign of the Whispering Tyrant and that Ustalav's darkest days are behind them now.
Befriending the ranger, Lorrimor had taken to contacting Ash through the druids for advice on how to navigate certain expeditions through the woods, providing him with neatly detailed maps. Ash would always return the advice very promptly through message, but had never the chance to see the Lorrimor again.
Many of his human friends had grown old and died while Ash still stayed young. After a while of being with the druids, the men who had let him stay had all passed on and the new group were feeling that his stay had run its course. A message came in the night, Ash was to head to Ravengro to attend Lorrimors funeral.
Ash is a very curious individual who enjoys the open air instead of being confined to buildings. His arrows plunge deep into his prey, he is good at the hunt, skinning pelts for a living he makes sure his arrows strike with mortal lethality so as not to poke too many holes in their furs.
Ranger extraordinaire, tracking expert, aspiring adventure. Ash has taken to not forming too close of bonds with the people he meets in life as they all seem to grow old and wither before his eyes. It hurts him to lose people he loves.
