About Liu Na
Liu Na Pei, or “Luna” as the folks of Sandpoint call her, currently works as a waitress at the Rusty Dragon.
Luna wasn’t always a tavern waitress. Luna’s mother, Kasuri Pei, was a servant of the Kaijitsu family, one of the noble families of Sandpoint. Kasuri’s ancestors were servants of the Kaijitus, and immigrated with them to Sandpoint. Luna resulted from an affair Kasuri had with a visiting elf glass merchant from Magnimar - Kasuri never told Luna his name, nor would anyone else in the Kaijitsu household.
Two years after Luna’s birth, the Kaijitsus gave birth to their daughter Ameiko. As children Luna and Ameiko played together and were as close as sisters, even though Luna was destined to be Ameiko’s servant when they both grew to maturity. Luna was quite upset when Ameiko ran away to become an adventurer with Sandru Vhiski, blaming the Varisian for taking her near-sister away from Sandpoint while she was left behind to lead the life of a servant. She was even more upset with Sandru when Ameiko came back a year later changed - purchasing the Rusty Dragon and living in the tavern instead of the Kaijitsu manor, and refusing to talk about what happened to her or her companions during their adventures. Still, when Luna’s mother was killed in a goblin raid on the town and Ameiko’s father was murdered a few days later, Ameiko quickly offered Luna a job as a waitress and a place to live at the Rusty Dragon. Since that time the two young women have become good friends again, although Luna still holds a grudge against Sandru Vhiski and refuses to serve the man or even speak to him whenever his travels bring him back to Sandpoint and the Rusty Dragon. To Luna, Sandru is little better than his Sczarni older brother Jubrayl.
What no one living today other than Luna knows is that her ancestors, the Pei family, were more than just servants for the Kaijitsus. For centuries the Pei family were a clan of ninja, serving as secret bodyguards and protectors of the Kaijitsu family. Prior to Luna’s birth, her mother Kasuri was the last of the line. Kasuri taught Luna some of the secrets of the clan, disabling locks and hidden traps throughout the Kaijitsu manor, moving silently across Sandpoint’s rooftops at night, and practicing the beautiful yet deadly combat techniques of the clan’s ancestral fighting fans. With her mother dead, Luna now bears the mantle of secret protector of the last of the Kaijitsus.
Weight: 110 lbs
Despite her elven heritage, Luna bears more resemblance to her Tian mother than her unknown elven father. Like her mother, Luna is smaller and slighter in stature than most of the residents of Sandpoint, with yellowish skin and almond-shaped, violet eyes. Unlike her mother, Luna has pointed ears and silvery-white hair, which her mother always said was an omen of greatness.

T: Skill can only be used if Trained.
Exotic Weapon Proficiency – Fighting Fan: Choose one type of exotic weapon, such as the spiked chain or whip.

Benefit: You make attack rolls with the weapon normally. (Half-Elf 1st level bonus feat)
Weapon Finesse: Use Dex instead of Str on attack rolls with light weapons. (1st level feat)
Best Friend (Ameiko): You are best friends with one of the NPCs; you’ve grown up together, and while your friend has had a much more exciting life than you so far, you hope one day to follow in your friend’s footsteps and see the world - or perhaps even become an adventurer yourself. You’ve picked up a lot from your friend, but particularly his or her skill in interacting with others. If Ameiko is your best friend, you gain a +2 trait bonus on Diplomacy checks. If Sandru is your best friend, you gain a +2 trait bonus on Bluff checks. Whichever skill you gain a trait bonus on, that skill is always considered a class skill for you. In addition, in situations where your best friend is in danger, you gain a +1 trait bonus on all attack rolls against foes that threaten your friend. [Campaign Trait]
Rich Parents: NOTE: For Luna, use of the Rich Parents trait is not intended to mean that she was born into a rich family; rather, it reflects her inheritance of her family’s ancestral fighting fans and her mother’s masterwork thieves’ tools. Benefit: Your starting cash increases to 900 gp. [Basic (Social) Trait]

Poison Use: At 1st level, a ninja is trained in the use of poison and cannot accidentally poison herself when applying poison to a weapon.
Sneak Attack: +1d6:
If a ninja can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from her attack, she can strike a vital spot for extra damage.
--The ninja’s attacks deal extra damage anytime her target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the ninja flanks her target. This extra damage is 1d6 at 1st level, and increases by 1d6 every two ninja levels thereafter. Bonus damage from sneak attacks is precision damage. Should the ninja score a critical hit with a sneak attack, this precision damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet.
--With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage (such as a sap, whip, or unarmed strike), a ninja can make a sneak attack that deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. She cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack, even with the usual -4 penalty.
--The ninja must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot, and must be able to reach this spot. A ninja cannot sneak attack while striking a creature that has concealment.
