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.
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.

Born in the small town of Galdent, not too far from Korvosa, Allyph was the daughter of a human named Aldyth and a elf whose name she was never told. It was because of not knowing her father that she inherited her mother's family name, Yssal. Unknown to the townsfolk Aldyth came from a family of witches, and had wanted to teach her daughter witchcraft when old enough.
It however happened that Allyph, six years old at the time, unexpectedly electrocuted a bird she enthusiastically pointed at. This happened in broad daylight with many onlookers and caused Allyph, already shunned for being a half-breed, to be declared dangerous by the townsfolk. Aldyth fled town with her daughter, who she now realized was a sorceress. They fled to Korvosa, where Aldyth's brother Thomar lived. When they arrived in Korvosa he took them in, and it was in Korvosa that Allyph grew up to become a woman.
Losses and sworn revenge
Wishing revenge for her mother and uncle their deaths, Allyph wanted to find the man named Gaedren Lamm. She wanted to figure out what his role was in the deaths of her mother and uncle. Be it a coincidence she ran into him, but by pursuing a lead she'd found Allyph had actually managed to find Gaedren. When Allyph had confronted the crime lord he'd stated Allyph had to pay off her uncle's debt. Outraged, she'd refused and attempted to kill him. Gaedren had struck her down, and Allyph realized she'd be no match for Gaedren and his men while alone.
Allyph fled, and it took several weeks for her to recover from her injuries. While recovering Allyph constantly moved from one abandoned house to another, never staying in one place longer than a week. The city had enough abandoned houses, and Allyph managed to avoid running into Gaedren or his men again. One morning Allyph found a card, The Courtesan, with a message on the back:
"”I know what Gaedren has done
It seemed the time for revenge was near.
Valuing individuality and freedom, Allyph prefers to pursue her personal ideals. She dislikes situations in which other people tell her what to do. This causes other people to sometimes think of her as stubborn. Despite having a history of being shunned for being a half-bred, she's a proud young woman who strives to be true to her ideals. Allyph however values her appearance just as much as her ideals. This causes her to either be very touchy or easily flattered when commented on her appearance.
Though not bound to any deity or religion, Allyph respects the forces of nature and believes a soul to be present in any organism; be it a plant or a human. As such she shows reverence for the organisms that lose their life so that she herself may live. When other people don't show the same reverence, she tends to get upset.
Being a half-elf, Allyph inherited traits of both human and elven lineage. She is 5'7" (170 cm) tall. This makes her taller than the average female human, but not as tall as the average female elf. Allyph weights 130 lbs (59 kg), and has inherited the lean build and comely features of her elven lineage. However her skin color is dictated by her human lineage, and of a rather pale complexion.
Allyph's ears are slightly pointed, but not as pointed as those of elves. Usually she drapes her long, slightly wavy hair over her ears, and the black hair reaches halfway her upper arms. This does obscure her ears from sight, though Allyph's intention in doing so is simply her sense of hair fashion. Even though Allyph's eyes are human-like, they stand out due to being a light shade of violet.
Having a preference for dresses, Allyph can usually be seen wearing those. She currently wears a violet dress with golden embroidery, and gold earrings and a gold necklace each set with amethysts. She sometimes wears a white cloak with the same golden embroidery over her dress, but usually keeps it in her backpack. Allyph wears a pair of black heels to appear a bit taller than she actually is.
