Rogue Talent Surprise Attack (Ex): During the surprise round, opponents are always considered flat-footed to a rogue with this ability, even if they have already acted.
Permanent Abilities Arcane Sight, Darkvision, Read Magic, See Invisibility, Tongues (27,500)
Headband Grants max ranks in Escape Artist, Knowledge (nature) and Linguistics
Ability scores raised by Wish Dex 4, Con 1, Int 5, Wis 1 (275,000)
Arcane Trickster abilities: Ranged Legerdemain (Su): An arcane trickster can use Disable Device and Sleight of Hand at a range of 30 feet. Working at a distance increases the normal skill check DC by 5, and an arcane trickster cannot take 10 on this check. Any object to be manipulated must weigh 5 pounds or less. She can only use this ability if she has at least 1 rank in the skill being used.

Sneak Attack: This is exactly like the rogue ability of the same name. The extra damage dealt increases by +1d6 every other level (2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and 10th). If an arcane trickster gets a sneak attack bonus from another source, the bonuses on damage stack.

Impromptu Sneak Attack (Ex): Beginning at 3rd level, once per day an arcane trickster can declare one melee or ranged attack she makes to be a sneak attack (the target can be no more than 30 feet distant if the impromptu sneak attack is a ranged attack). The target of an impromptu sneak attack loses any Dexterity bonus to AC, but only against that attack. The power can be used against any target, but creatures that are not subject to critical hits take no extra damage (though they still lose any Dexterity bonus to AC against the attack).

At 7th level, an arcane trickster can use this ability twice per day.

Tricky Spells (Su): Starting at 5th level, an arcane trickster can cast her spells without their somatic or verbal components, as if using the Still Spell and Silent Spell feats. Spells cast using this ability do not increase in spell level or casting time. She can use this ability 3 times per day at 5th level and one additional time per every two levels thereafter, to a maximum of 5 times per day at 9th level. The arcane trickster decides to use this ability at the time of casting.

Invisible Thief (Su): At 9th level, an arcane trickster can become invisible, as if under the effects of greater invisibility, as a free action. She can remain invisible for a number of rounds per day equal to her arcane trickster level. Her caster level for this effect is equal to her caster level. These rounds need not be consecutive.

Surprise Spells: At 10th level, an arcane trickster can add her sneak attack damage to any spell that deals damage, if the targets are flat-footed. This additional damage only applies to spells that deal hit point damage, and the additional damage is of the same type as the spell. If the spell allows a saving throw to negate or halve the damage, it also negates or halves the sneak attack damage.

At 152 years of age, Lothorian is young by elven standards, but is nonetheless an accomplished adventurer, and now a trusted “special” agent and adviser to Queen Telandia Edasseril of Kyonin.

He wasn't always so well regarded. As a youngster, he lived in such far-flung places as Absalom, Irrisen, and Katapesh, the son of a Kyonin diplomat and her merchant husband. His natural curiosity, smooth talking charm and deftness at stealth got him (and his family) in trouble with various nobles, officials, and other people important to Kyonin. It usually revolved around a scandalous affair with some rich person's daughter.

He was sent back to Kyonin, charged with finding a more useful application for his talents. It wasn't long before he found himself adventuring with other young elves, acting as a forward scout for skirmishers trying to contain the threat of the Tanglebriar, and the deadly things found therein.

Like many elves, Latharian was quite intelligent, and discovered his faculty for wizardry by associating with adventuring wizards during his service. He soon found out that he could wring impressive damage from even the simplest evocations, and delighted in using spells to surprise and defeat the unwary, and to spy on enemies unnoticed.

By mid-level, the elf had again traveled widely, and gained a reputation as a go-to guy for people wanting information, or a particular item stolen, or a scout who could go ahead alone, and return with valuable intelligence for an adventuring party, a suspicious spouse, or an army.

As he grew in experience and power, Lefty began to prefer working alone. To him, dungeon delving and monster fighting were entertaining, but adventuring groups were a noisy and sometimes cantankerous lot, and the risks were often greater than the rewards. Why storm the castle when what you want can be taken quietly, with the right magic and a skillful hand?

It was around this time that he caught the notice of the Queen of Kyonin.

Upon their first meeting, his loyalty shifted. He was still a mercenary, but also a servant; a servant of his queen, even more than her people. She rewarded him well.

Queen Telandia is herself a powerful wizard, with all the resources her position as queen of an ancient and magical race avail her. Latharian believes that she was born to rule. The problem, as she explained it, was that she ruled a people who cared little for rules, and sometimes lived more like spoiled children than almost immortal beings. In spite of their long lives, elves can sometimes be short-sighted, and work at cross purposes.

He respects her, and likes the ideas she comes up with. It doesn't hurt that she's also kind and beautiful. He spies, steals, and even kills for Telandia, without question or regret, under dozens of guises. Few ever see his true form. He's an agent of Kyonin. More importantly, he's an agent of the Queen, herself.

He's traveled Golarion, some planes, and even accompanied Telandia to Sovyrian as her escort.

He does some dirty jobs, now and then, and spares her the details. She's merciful and forgiving.

Lefty? Not so much.

In the last couple of decades, Lefty's been a very "deep cover" sort of spy. He can travel to strange places, assume a persona, and keep up the chicanery long enough to find out what he really wants to know.

Or, sometimes (especially since he hit 18th and learned Mind Blank), he goes to dangerous places and takes out specific enemies to the Queen's interests. They are generally not powerful enough to detect him, and he leaves no clues. He just learns what the subject knows, and disappears.

When she told him to go on this adventure, with a band of other adventurers of comparable stature, he simply obeyed. It seemed the situation was dire, and needed a touch of discretion.

He teleported from her veranda to his villa in Erages, and began to prepare.
