* Unhappy Childhood--You spent a period of time as one of Gaedren’s enslaved orphans. Religious: You found a holy symbol of the god you worship today while on a job for Gaedren and, intrigued by it, you snuck off to attend services. When Gaedren found out, he beat you to within an inch of your life and broke your holy symbol. Your faith let you block out the pain, and you escaped his control and took shelter in the church, where you spent the rest of your youth. You gain a +2 bonus on Concentration checks.
* Etymologist (Gnome, Social)--When you, like all other young gnomes, were taught the hodgepodge Gnome language, you became curious about the original meaning of each word and what language it was derived from. Anytime you come across a new language, you are immediately absorbed by both how it works and what words you can co-opt from it for the Gnome language. Benefit: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Linguistics checks, know one additional bonus language, and treat Linguistics as a class skill.

-Extended Illusions (Su)--Any illusion spell you cast with a duration of “concentration” lasts a number of additional rounds equal to 1/2 your wizard level after you stop maintaining concentration (minimum +1 round). At 20th level, you can make one illusion spell with a duration of “concentration” become permanent. You can have no more than one illusion made permanent in this way at one time. If you designate another illusion as permanent, the previous permanent illusion ends.
-Blinding Ray (Sp)--As a standard action you can fire a shimmering ray at any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The ray causes creatures to be blinded for 1 round. Creatures with more Hit Dice than your wizard level are dazzled for 1 round instead. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.
-Invisibility Field (Sp)--At 8th level, you can make yourself Invisible as a swift action for a number of rounds per day equal to your wizard level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive. This otherwise functions as greater invisibility.

Pai is a pretty gnome female with long green hair and brown eyes. She normally keeps her hair put in a tight bun, allowing her to not worry about having to keep it brushed out of her eyes. She is average height and slightly thin for a gnome. She is quiet and professional in her outlook, very unlike most gnomes. Since she was 'flipped' by the guard, she has become quite fond of her job, and doesn't want to do anything to lose it. It keeps a few gold in her pocket at all times.



Pai was raised in Korvosa. From an extremely young age, she knew what she wanted to do...get accepted into the Acadamae. Unfortunately, not being raised of any real means, that was impossible for her, as she could not begin to afford the tuition. She decided on the next best thing, using what small amount of knowledge she had to take from others and earn a living. She eeked out enough gold to survive, perhaps not as well as she would have liked, by using her skills with Illusion and blending in with the very people she was robbing. Eventually, she fell in with Gaedrin Lamm's crew.

Pai was a bit too clever for her own good, however. She was not a fan of doing any real violence to her victims, just wanting to take a few coins and quickly get away. Lamm didn't appreciate the vibes he received from his "littlest recruit", and set her up to get arrested on a particular mission, to teach her a lesson. When the guard caught Pai, she received a merciless beating at the hands of Lamm's loyalist guard, before being arrested. She did a short jail stent, and it was there that her greatest moment in life occurred. Whether it was an after effect of a concussion, or a an actual missive from her goddess, Pai believes while in the jail, she spoke to Sivanah. She received a warning that Korvosa needed her talents in the future.

After waking up in her cell post the beating, Pai reevaluated her circumstances, wanting to stay unnoticed and perfect her talents to prove her worth to Sivanah. After being released, Pai has attempted to avoid going back to a life of petty crime. She has made herself available as a consultant to the guard, helping use her magic to help with certain delicate jobs.

Pseudodragons are tiny cousins of true dragons, and are playful but shy. They often only vocalize in chirps, hisses, growls, and purrs, but can communicate telepathically with any intelligent creature. If approached peacefully and offered food, they are usually willing to share information about what they've seen in their territory, but threats or violence make them flee.
Pseudodragons are carnivores, devouring insects, rodents, small birds, and snakes, though they sometimes eat eggs, and most also enjoy butter, cheese, and fish. They either hunt on the ground like lizards or look for prey on the wing like a raptor. As smart as a typical humanoid, they do not enjoy being treated as pets and prefer being treated as friends. They are wary of evil folk but can bond with sorcerers and wizards as familiars, and some have befriended druids and rangers or partnered with good dragons as scouts. Pseudodragons will serve as familiars if they approve of a spellcaster's personality (and if the spellcaster takes the Improved Familiar feat), but often also bond with those whose company they enjoy or who have proven themselves true friends. A pseudodragon might follow another character in this manner for days, weeks, years, or even a lifetime if the creature is treated well, provided with food, and generally well-loved.
Upon reaching adulthood, a pseudodragon's body is about 1 foot long with a 2-foot tail, and weighs about 7 pounds. A pseudodragon egg is the size of a chicken egg, but leathery and spotted brown, and a mating female lays 2–5 eggs every spring. A clutch of pseudodragons (the collective noun—not to be confused with pseudodragons from the same brood of eggs) usually consists of a mated pair and several near-adult offspring.
