Arcane Training Half-elves with this racial trait have only one favored class, and it must be an arcane spellcasting class. They can use spell trigger and spell completion items for their favored class as if one level higher (or as a 1st-level character if they have no levels in that class). This racial trait replaces the multitalented racial trait.
Bastard You take a –1 penalty on all Charisma-based skill checks made when dealing with members of Brevic nobility but gain a +1 trait bonus on Will saves as a result of your stubbornness and individuality.
Bloodline Arcana Whenever you cast a spell of the charm subschool, increase the spell's DC by +2.
Corrupting Touch (7/day) Causes a creature to be shaken for 1 round. Creatures shaken by this radiate an evil aura as though they were an evil outsider.
Elven Immunities +2 save bonus vs Enchantments and are immune to sleep effects.
Integrated Half-elves with this racial trait gain a +1 bonus on Bluff, Disguise, and Knowledge (local) checks. This racial trait replaces the adaptability racial trait.

1st-Level(4/day) Charm Person (DC 18), Sleep (DC 16)

The Lanshanakir family is a mildly influential family with ties to the Orlovsky family in Brevoy, mostly through arranged marriages between the two. Her father, Albric, was a lecherous man in his youth and while that had gotten him in trouble before, it was never anything his wealth and power couldn’t get him out of. At least until 22 years ago when an elven woman brought him their half-elven child. Months later, the child's mother was gone.

Galacia spent her childhood hidden away from the world. She was a well-kept family secret that could bring shame on the house if word of her heritage ever got out. Her father would pass her off as a serving girl or the playmate of one of his human offspring to anyone noticing the half-elf girl that was always present in his home; whatever it took to keep his name out of the gossip.

The abilities she possessed manifested at a young age, often violently so. Albric assumed it to be a side effect of her elven blood and sent for a tutor to get the girl under control. While the fiery outbursts were unsettling and dangerous, Albric thought little of what it meant for his daughter. It was just another thing to be swept under the rug and hidden.

Her tutor was a halfling man named Lyle Fairhill. Lyle quickly proved to be adept at his assigned task and became one of Galacia's only true friends. With Lyle's help, she learned to blend into a crowd much like her often overlooked halfling teacher and how to channel the fiery magic she displayed in her youth into something more subtle; skills her father was more than happy to see the girl learn.

As she grew into a teenager, Albric began plotting ways to make use of his half-elven daughter. She couldn't be married off to an Orlovsky suitor without Albric admitting she was his child. However, having heard of Orlovsky's interest in the Stolen Lands and the Swordlord's plans to send expeditions to the frontier, Albric formed a plan to rid himself of the girl. Galacia was presented to House Orlovsky as a retainer with a gift for magic that was all too eager to help them stake their claim in the Stolen Lands.

Galacia gladly went along with the charade. She looked forward to no longer having to hide herself. She desired a chance to get out of Restov and find clues about her mother. And above all...Galacia needed answers. Answers for her innate magical talent, the mark that suddenly appeared on her cheek on her 20th birthday, and the sinister voices that called to her in her dreams.

Galacia's appearance heavily favors her elven mother, a fact her father brings up far too often. The color of her hair is a mix of the blonde commonly found in the north and the dark earthen tones of her mother's race. Her eyes are a vivid green, one of the few features she possesses that is unquestionably from her father. A strange runic mark, too light to be a tattoo and too dark to be a scar, rests on her left cheek though Galacia has no idea how it came to find its way there.

Galacia has left most of the pomp and pageantry of her noble roots behind. Still, she chooses to dress as a member of the upper class to set herself apart now that she's out on her own. A casual observer might think Galacia was raised by her elven parent given the way she carries herself, though her air of arrogance is simply a product of high society posturing.


Galacia is typically fairly reserved in public as she's lived under her father's rule of "seen but not heard" for so long. She will usually stay quiet in the presence of a more forceful or intimidating personality and it isn't difficult for such a person to bully her around. When she does speak in public, she does so with a practiced grace befitting someone of her upbringing.

Around friends or when hidden away from prying eyes, she's much more animated. She enjoys playful teasing as a form of joking and enjoys the company of people whose pride won't get in the way of such things. Galacia seems to form attachments to other "outsider" types much quicker than with more normal people.

Galacia has a few negative personality quirks. For one, she enjoys being the center of attention...probably a bit more than is healthy. She also hates having things she desires withheld from her and it is one of the very few ways of angering her.
