Description Kalina is beautiful, with long dark hair, and a pale complexion. Her eyes are usually a warm amber, but seem to darken depending on her mood, or her thirst. Kalina wishes she could be unobtrusive, unnoticed, but there is something about her unnatural loveliness and grace that draws the eye. On the rare occasion in which she smiles, slight fangs become visible. She wears a simple traveling dress, a holy symbol of Pharasma, and carries little else.
More than anything, Kalina wants to be good. As the child of a mother who was forcibly charmed and seduced by a vampire, Kalina has been told every day that she was unwanted and corrupt by nature.
She was lovely, but something about her was eerie and always scared off the other children. Her situation worsened when, at puberty, she began to develop unnatural abilities. And the ostrazation was complete when she was discovered drinking the blood of a rat that a stray cat had caught. Kalina knew better, but she couldn't restrain herself, the warm, living blood of a mortal creature-- the smell, the taste-- put her in rapture. Nothing else had ever had such richness of flavor. Still to this day, nothing else has any taste for her at all, but the blood of a living creature. Kalina has no desire to harm anyone, but when someone near her is bleeding it takes all her will not to take a drink before healing the wound shut.
Only a chance encounter with Professor Lorrimor saved Kalina from heading down the bitter, lonely path that was her certain future--exiled with nowhere to go. Professor Lorrimor found the child just as she was being run out of town by the horrified villagers. He found her to be charming and kind. With a friendly ear, she quickly opened up into a delightful child. He was fascinated by her unusual mind and abilities. And he was the one who told her that she could decide her own destiny. If she wished to use her special gifts to good purpose, than she could.
He took her away from her relieved mother and townspeople so she could receive tutalage at a temple of Pharasma. Not actually a cleric, at least her unusual gifts were respected there, even if no one was yet comfortable around her.
Professor Lorrimor kept up his correspondence with Kalina. He was always curious and supportive of any new abilities she discovered.(Subject of Study--Kalina herself) In time she trusted her mentor and friend enough to tell him of her secret fascination with her vampire father. From the little her mother had told her, Kalina pieced together that her unliving father had contrived a situation to have a living child. But why? From her research with the professor it was clear that the act of blood drinking is far more satisfying then sex to a vampire. Why not drink his fill and then leave her mother to live or die? Why come back, night after night, until her mother was pregnant? Where is he now? And what might he want from his child? Kalina is fascinated, but terrified to find out. Kalina had just received a letter from the professor that he had a clue as to her father's identity. But before she could arrange a visit, word came that Professor Lorrimor was dead.
Kalina was devastated to learn that her only true friend had died. Having no idea what to expect, she makes her way to his funeral.

. Subject of Study +1 bonus on damage rolls against creatures of this type.Undead
Professor Lorrimor approached you as part of his studies, as he had heard that you had survived a recent encounter with a strange monster or had another fateful encounter. Interested in the conditions of the run-in and the means by which you avoided death or injury, he met with you and maintained frequent correspondence until several months ago. The scars of your experience and his continual reminders of the encounter prompted you to hone your skills lest you someday face the same type of creature again. The professor assisted you in this endeavor, providing you with insight into the anatomy and defenses of the creature that attacked you. Years of study have improved your combat effectiveness against your chosen foe. (In this case, Kalina herself was the subject of study.) Benefit: Choose a non-humanoid creature type. You gain a +1 bonus on damage rolls against creatures of this type.Undead
Flaws Terrible Thirst GM Homebrew:
. If she doesn't drink any blood for a week she gets a penalty of 1 HP/2 Level (min 1) (not cumulative). For this a mouthful is enough.
. If she does drinks the blood of an live animal she gets 1 temp. HP/3 Level for 12 Hours. If the animal suffers this is an evil act (so usually it is, but for example drinking the blood of an animal which was beaten to negative HP in a fight or is to be butchered either way and is unconscious/dying already is only neutral (but may not be very popular in the group)).
. If she drinks the blood of an humanoid she gains 1 temp. HP/Level for 12 Hours, but this will usually be an evil act.
Drinking blood in this way requires over a liter and deals 4 Constitution Damage to the victim. For balance reason can not be done as a Combat Action (so no pinning + drinking or the like).
Should it become apparent that this is to big a bonus or should you try to use it regularly to empower yourself I reserve it for myself to revoke this at all times. So please no talking partymembers into letting themselves be bitten to gain combat bonuses (this can still be used to avoid the penalty).
