About Orin Vanderwhal


Name: Orin Vanderwhal
Neutral Good Human Fighter (Lore Warden) 7/ Witch (White-Haired Witch) of ?? (Cayden Cailean maybe?)
Age: 29 Height: 6’1” Weight: 185 lbs Eyes:Blue Hair: White
Languages: Common, Azlanti, Dwarven, Elven, Infernal, Celestial, Halfling
Favored Class: Fighter (+4 vs Trip, +4 vs Grapple--4 levels, +3 HP 3 levels)
Orin is tall and lithe, and his robes cover his armor. He has a buckler strapped to his arm, but other than that he appears to be unarmed. Though he is young, he has long white hair. He uses his Belt of Disguise to make his hair appear black, and his cestus to appear like a normal glove. He sometimes makes his robe appear to be covered in arcane symbols when he wants to give the impression that he is a wizard. Orin rarely smiles and often studies people critically, especially when they are displaying any sort of combat, athletic, or magical prowess.

Purposely withheld because the other characters don't know yet.

Scholastic (Ex) Lore wardens gain 2 additional skill ranks each level. These ranks must be spent on Intelligence-based skills. All Intelligence-based skills are class skills for lore wardens.
This ability replaces the lore warden’s proficiency with medium armor, heavy armor, and shields.,

Maneuver Mastery (Ex) At 3rd level, a lore warden gains a +2 bonus on all CMB checks and to his CMD. This bonus increases to +4 at 7th level, +6 at 11th level, and +8 at 15th level.
This ability replaces armor training 1,

Know Thy Enemy At 7th level, a lore warden can take a standard action to study a specific target in sight. He must make a Knowledge check to determine the target’s abilities and weaknesses as part of this standard action. If successful, the lore warden not only notes the appropriate abilities and weaknesses, as detailed under the Knowledge skill, but also gains a +2 competence bonus on all attack rolls and weapon damage rolls made against that enemy. Note that this bonus on attack and damage rolls applies only to that specific creature. This bonus lasts for the duration of an encounter, or until the lore warden attempts a new Knowledge check to use this ability on a different target.

This ability replaces armor training 2.

Weapon Training (Ex) Natural Weapons +1 attack, damage, CMB, CMD vs Disarm and Sunder

White Hair (see below)

White Hair:

Destiny Weapon:
Magic Bonus: +3/+3
Base DAM: 1d8

Ghost Touch
Keen (equivalent) - crit 19+ / x2
+1 DC and +1 to SR checks when using hair to deliver a touch spell

At 1st level, a white-haired witch gains the ability to use her hair as a weapon. This functions as a primary natural attack with a reach of 5 feet. The hair deals 1d4 points of damage (1d3 for a Small witch) plus the witch’s Intelligence modifier. In addition, whenever the hair strikes a foe, the witch can attempt to grapple that foe with her hair as a free action* without provoking an attack of opportunity, using her Intelligence modifier in place of her Strength modifier when making the combat maneuver check. When a white-haired witch grapples a foe in this way, she does not gain the grappled condition.

At 4th level and every four levels thereafter, a white-haired witch’s hair adds 5 feet to its reach, to a maximum of 30 feet at 20th level. (Current—10 ft reach)

The hair cannot be sundered or attacked as a separate creature.
In addition, a white-haired witch further improves her ability to control her hair as she progresses in level, gaining the following abilities:

Constrict (Ex): At 2nd level, when the white-haired witch’s hair successfully grapples an opponent, it can begin constricting her victim as a free action*, dealing damage equal to that of its attack.

Trip (Ex): At 4th level, a white-haired witch who successfully strikes a foe with her hair can attempt a combat maneuver check to trip the creature as a free action*.

Pull (Ex): At 6th level, a white-haired witch who successfully strikes a foe with her hair can attempt a combat maneuver check to pull the creature 5 feet closer to her as a free action*.

Strangle (Ex): At 8th level, when the white-haired witch’s hair is grappling with an opponent, that creature is considered strangled, and cannot speak or cast spells with verbal components.
This ability replaces hex.

*Editor's note: James Jacobs has stated that the white-haired witch's grab, trip, constrict and pull abilities should be swift actions, not free actions. GMs are encouraged to use these rules, though an official FAQ has not yet been written on this topic.
