About Aerin Aurora
Female Fanglord Skinwalker
Aerin is an attractive, fit woman with tawny blond hair. Intricate tattoos trace her arms, legs, back, shoulders, and just below her collar bones. She wears rough-tanned dark leathers and golden furs. She carries large round shield painted with an emblem of a stylized lion's head. Her weapon is a strange, thin crescent shaped blade with a center grip. A lion trots at her side.
Aerin's family bears a curse, but over time it has worn thin. Now it is practically a blessing. The blood of the lion keeps her hardy and strong and connects her to the spirits of the land. She learned to harness that power when she was young, called by the night and the moon.
Her pride is gone now, victims of the [insert villain here]'s purge while she was out hunting for food. The [villain] does not yet realized the depth of their mistake, but they will. Even alone, lions are fierce enemies.
Personality and quirks:
Aerin is content to lead or follow as the situation warrants. She is laid back, easy to get along with, and as reliable as they come. She is also loyal to a fault and will hold a grudge forever. She does not easily forget nor forgive.
Like most of her savage kin she considers violence a form of entertainment, enjoys a challenge, loves tales and drink, and considers her family and community to be the most important aspects of her life. There is an infectious wildness to her.

Favored Class Bonuses-
1) Add +½ to the oracle’s level for the purposes of determining the effects of the oracle’s curse ability.
Low-Light Vision (Ex): In dim light, skinwalkers can see twice as far as humans.
A skinwalker can return to her humanoid form as a swift action. To change forms and gain a different benefit, a skinwalker must first return to her humanoid form then use her shapechange ability again. A skinwalker can shapechange into bestial form a number of times per day equal to 3 + 1/2 her character level.
Lycanthropy Curse: In times of stress or unease, you cannot speak—only growl and snarl like an animal. This ability works similarly to the tongues curse, but whenever you are in combat, you cannot speak at all. This does not interfere with spellcasting but does apply to spells that are language dependent. A character under the effects of speak with animals can understand you, and you can communicate with such characters normally. You can speak with animals when in this condition. Choose one type of animal commonly associated with lycanthropy (such as rats, wolves, or bears); you gain a +4 bonus on Handle Animal checks with these creatures.
Bonded Spirit (Su) At 3rd level, a spirit guide can form a temporary bond with a spirit, as the shaman’s wandering spirit class feature. She must make this selection each day when she refreshes her spells. A spirit guide cannot bond with a spirit that is incompatible with her alignment, ethos, or mystery (GM’s discretion).
A spirit guide gains one hex of her choice from the list of hexes available from that spirit. She uses her oracle level as her shaman level, and she switches Wisdom for Charisma and vice versa for the purpose of determining the hex’s effects.
At 4th level, she adds the bonded spirit’s spirit magic spells to her oracle spells known for that day, but only of spell levels she can cast. At 7th level, she gains the spirit ability of her current bonded spirit. At 15th level, she gains the greater spirit ability of her current bonded spirit.
This ability replaces the revelations gained at 3rd, 7th, and 15th levels.
Life Spirit: Life Link (Su): The shaman creates a bond between herself and another creature within 30 feet. Each round at the start of the shaman’s turn, if the bonded creature is wounded for 5 or more hit points below its maximum hit points
Bonus Spells: fumbletongue (2nd), dust of twilight (4th), rage (6th), moonstruck (8th), aspect of the wolf (10th), litany of madness (12th), lunar veil (14th), blood mist (16th), polar midnight (18th).
Prophetic Armor (Ex): You are so in tune with your primal nature that your instincts often act to save you from danger that your civilized mind isn’t even aware of. You may use your Charisma modifier (instead of your Dexterity modifier) as part of your Armor Class and all Reflex saving throws. Your armor’s maximum Dexterity bonus applies to your Charisma, instead.
Primal Companion (Ex): You gain the service of a faithful animal of the night. You can select from a bear, boar, crocodile, shark, tiger, or wolf. This animal functions as a druid’s animal companion, using your oracle level as your effective druid level.
