Gunslinger's Dodge (Ex): At 1st level, the gunslinger gains an uncanny knack for getting out of the way of ranged attacks. When a ranged attack is made against the gunslinger, she can spend 1 grit point to move 5 feet as an immediate action; doing so grants the gunslinger a +2 bonus to AC against the triggering attack. This movement is not a 5-foot step, and provokes attacks of opportunity. Alternatively, the gunslinger can drop prone to gain a +4 bonus to AC against the triggering attack. The gunslinger can only perform this deed while wearing medium or light armor

Background : Precocious for her age and fiercely independent,the youngest child of Torgill Terah Deepheavy,a retired dwarven hero and ranger living in the Varisan hinterlands upon several hundred acres he owns and tends as a farmer,Gatherine "Taboofox" Deepheavy is set to become an adventuress.Except she's a few years shy of offically being considered an adult by dwarven measures and the fact she ran away from home too far for her sister or father to retrieve, taking her father's prized dragon pistol firearm he aquired and used in his early adventuring career--without so much as a word.Boisterous,bold, and proud, she refuses to turn back until she's proven she can be a successful adventurer with enough fame and an impressive trophy to show to all those naysayers (especially her father).She ran off when her father was away on business and her older sister was too preoccupied managing his land until it was too late and she had relocated to Janderhoff,and then became a stowaway on the merchant ship Jenivere headed to distant and mysterious Sargava. Because she knows her father won't step foot near a boat but her sister just might and she intends to lay low until she's in Sargava to have her grand adventure…that is unless she gets caught before then.
Personality :Gatherine is like your typical dwarf; stern,stubborn and sometimes downright grim.The only thing she isn't is wise.Barely out of her teens,she simply decided that she was grown and ready to venture out on her own, to her family's chargin. Although she feels a bit guilty for worrying her sister whom she fears will turn up and drag her home, she knows she won't prove herself in her father's eyes as being able to take care of herself and flourish unless she does this. From her point of reasoning,anyway. As for the pistol she 'borrowed' ,he wasn't using it anyway so she might as well.She may come across as a foolhardy brat at times but she will help out those who clearly need it to the best of her ability,no matter how clumsy her efforts.She mimics the fashions of humans who catch her fancy,altering them with her own personal flair and proudly boasts she has a body like Bolka,prone to striking exaggerated poses and subtle winks. She comes across as a child trying to be a woman...an arrogant one.
