About Gaius Tindareus
Background: A Lesson in Vengeance:
As Gaius raises his fist over the cowering wretch, his mind wanders to a time long past…
He remembers pinning the other child with one hand as he hit him with the other, the blood spattering his features. Even back then, at that awkward age, Gaius was handsome, a unique blend of his exotic parentage. The younger boy couldn’t put up much of a fight, but before another punch landed on the bruised and swelling face, a quiet but stern voice commanded him to stop. He half turned in annoyance, then quickly stood at attention when he saw Sister Rose, her yellow robes matching his own novice’s attire. She was short and slight, but her presence was menacing nonetheless.
What is the meaning of this? she asked with an edge to her voice.
Indignant, Gaius replied: He stole from me, three coppers, so I’m paying him back. One black eye per coin. He’ll have to owe me for the third. Would you keep me from my vengeance?
Quiet, your ignorance betrays your age, she snapped before extending a hand to the hurt boy, who flinched at first before accepting her help. Rose continued: You are Willem, the baker’s son, yes? Tell me, why would a baker’s son steal bread money? Tell me true, or I’ll know.
The child, utterly defeated, couldn’t meet the sister’s gaze as he responded. My father…he owed on a bad wager, so he borrowed some money. He paid the debt weeks ago, but still the men come. They…they’ve taken everything we have. I didn’t know what else to do.
Give me a name, child.
Silas…the man’s name is Silas, the child’s voice quavered as he spoke.
Willem, I expect Silas, or one of his associates, will be returning your money to you shortly. Go home, and remain there.
Gaius watched, thoroughly interested, as Rose put her arm around him and said softly: Gaius, you need not have all the answers, but at least know what are the right questions. Vengeance without cause is just cruelty in disguise, and I promise you The Unquenchable Fire frowns upon such. Come with me to this Silas, and I’ll show you what vengeance is.
Another whimper snapped Gaius back to the present.
Vengeance without cause, ask the right questions. Almost there…
Please, don’t kill me! I didn’t know my guys were supplying the drugs to ladies of the temple. I didn’t…
Give me a name, Gaius, blackjack in hand, interrupted his quarry. The beaten man craned his neck to look through swollen eyes at the inquisitor, speaking with a bloody ruin of a mouth.

Lvl 1 (Skill +1)
Torturer’s Presence (Ex): You gain a +2 bonus when using the Intimidate skill. This is in addition to your bonus for Stern Gaze.
Torturer’s Touch (Sp): You may use touch of fatigue as a spell-like ability. Creatures that are immune to pain effects are immune to this touch. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.
Critical Precision (Ex): At 8th level, when you roll a critical threat, you may expend one use of your torturer’s touch ability to add +4 on your critical confirmation roll. This does not stack with Critical Focus.
Starting at 1st level, an inquisitor can pronounce judgment upon her foes as a swift action. Starting when the judgment is made, the inquisitor receives a bonus or special ability based on the type of judgment made.
At 1st level, an inquisitor can use this ability once per day. At 4th level and every three levels thereafter, the inquisitor can use this ability one additional time per day. Once activated, this ability lasts until the combat ends, at which point all of the bonuses immediately end. The inquisitor must participate in the combat to gain these bonuses. If she is frightened, panicked, paralyzed, stunned, unconscious, or otherwise prevented from participating in the combat, the ability does not end, but the bonuses do not resume until she can participate in the combat again.
When the inquisitor uses this ability, she must select one type of judgment to make. As a swift action, she can change this judgment to another type. If the inquisitor is evil, she receives profane bonuses instead of sacred, as appropriate. Neutral inquisitors must select profane or sacred bonuses. Once made, this choice cannot be changed.
Destruction: The inquisitor is filled with divine wrath, gaining a +1 sacred bonus on all weapon damage rolls. This bonus increases by +1 for every three inquisitor levels she possesses.
Healing: The inquisitor is surrounded by a healing light, gaining fast healing 1. This causes the inquisitor to heal 1 point of damage each round as long as the inquisitor is alive and the judgment lasts. The amount of healing increases by 1 point for every three inquisitor levels she possesses.
Justice: This judgment spurs the inquisitor to seek justice, granting a +1 sacred bonus on all attack rolls. This bonus increases by +1 for every five inquisitor levels she possesses. At 10th level, this bonus is doubled on all attack rolls made to confirm critical hits.
Piercing: This judgment gives the inquisitor great focus and makes her spells more potent. This benefit grants a +1 sacred bonus on concentration checks and caster level checks made to overcome a target’s spell resistance. This bonus increases by +1 for every three inquisitor levels she possesses.
Protection: The inquisitor is surrounded by a protective aura, granting a +1 sacred bonus to Armor Class. This bonus increases by +1 for every five inquisitor levels she possesses. At 10th level, this bonus is doubled against attack rolls made to confirm critical hits against the inquisitor.
Purity: The inquisitor is protected from the vile taint of her foes, gaining a +1 sacred bonus on all saving throws. This bonus increases by +1 for every five inquisitor levels she possesses. At 10th level, the bonus is doubled against curses, diseases, and poisons.
Resiliency: This judgment makes the inquisitor resistant to harm, granting DR 1/magic. This DR increases by 1 for every five levels she possesses. At 10th level, this DR changes from magic to an alignment (chaotic, evil, good, or lawful) that is opposite the inquisitor’s. If she is neutral, the inquisitor does not receive this increase.
Resistance: The inquisitor is shielded by a flickering aura, gaining 2 points of energy resistance against one energy type (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic) chosen when the judgment is declared. The protection increases by 2 for every three inquisitor levels she possesses.
Smiting: This judgment bathes the inquisitor’s weapons in a divine light. The inquisitor’s weapons count as magic for the purposes of bypassing damage reduction. At 6th level, the inquisitor’s weapons also count as one alignment type (chaotic, evil, good, or lawful) for the purpose of bypassing damage reduction. The type selected must match one of the inquisitor’s alignments. If the inquisitor is neutral, she does not receive this bonus. At 10th level, the inquisitor’s weapons also count as adamantine for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction (but not for reducing hardness).
Misdirection (Sp) At 1st level, each day when the infiltrator prepares spells, she may choose an alignment. She detects as that alignment as if she had used misdirection on a creature with that alignment (this does not change any divination results about her other than her alignment).
This power replaces stern gaze.
Guileful Lore (Ex)
At 1st level, the infiltrator’s will is bent toward subterfuge and deception. She adds her Wisdom modifier on Bluff and Diplomacy skill checks in addition to the normal ability score modifiers.
This ability replaces monster lore.
Forbidden Lore (Ex)(Level 2)
While other inquisitors learned to track unbelievers, an infiltrator learns how to cast their spells. An infiltrator can cast spells of an alignment opposed to her or her deity (ignoring the restriction in the Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells class ability).
This ability replaces track.
Necessary Lies (Su)(Level 5)
An infiltrator adds her class level on saving throws against abilities that detect lies or reveal or force the truth, such as detect lies and zone of truth.
This power replaces discern lies.
