About Ernest Kalthet
PFS Number: 22357-15
Ernest is a Osirian/Chelish man-boy, sporting a paler skin than most Osiriani while still retaining their facial structures. He is a moderately tall man of a standard, mildly-athletic build. He carries with him a backpack of gear, has a set of wands with an imprint of the Osiriani royal scarab embedded in it located on his belt, and is accompanied by his well-mannered pig, Professor Snouts Oinkerton. He is the sole heir to the Kalthet Family Tomb Protection Services Company.
- Advantageous Distraction: You are easily distracted, often at just the right time. Once per day as a swift action, you can be momentarily distracted in combat, such as by ducking an axe swing to inspect a toadstool. When you activate this ability, you gain a +2 dodge bonus to AC for 1 round.
- Bouncy Your bones, flesh, and skin are a bit more elastic than those of most goblins—when you fall, you tend to bounce a little better than them as a result. Whenever you take falling damage, the first 1d6 points of lethal damage suffered in the fall are automatically converted to nonlethal damage. You also gain a +2 bonus on all Reflex saves made to avoid unexpected falls.
- Goblin Bravery You have a worrying propensity for overconfidence in combat. When facing an enemy that’s larger than you, if you have no allies in any adjacent squares, your posturing, bravado, and cussing grant a +1 trait bonus on attack rolls with non-reach melee weapons.
SPECIAL NOTE: Improvisation lets me roll all skills Untrained (which included knowledges), and gives a +2 to the roll if it has no ranks. Usually-unrollable skills are shown below and are represented in-character as wild guesses or associating knowing the thing in question with something horribly unrelated.

Young Ernest was raised the way every individual in his family was raised; around dangerous traps. The spotting, creating, and disabling of traps was (and always has been) a standard around the Kalthet home. The problem with Ernest was that the mechanical traps were too limited in target range, and required parts on the field. Magic, however, is magical. Magical magic could simply "magic" traps to the location needed, no questions asked! "This... this is my research! This is my topic," he exclaimed only days before registering into Pathfinder training.
During his training, he found his skills lied in the Conjuration school of magic. His focus, however, came at an odd cost; his weight. His first spell to master was "Grease," whose component is butter. Such a prolonged exposure of time around a food he found to be found exotic and versatile gave him too many opportunities to acquire a taste for it. First, he tried it on foods intended for its use, like pasta or rice. Later, as he grew more curious, he tried it on stranger and stranger foods. After about a year and a half in the academy, he lived almost entire on butter pats alone. This has given him one of his most defining features; his girth. He is now often seen consuming "components that are soon to spoil." "Why waste it, after all?"

Aram Zey created this spell for use by his students, both to increase their confidence in their skills and to ensure more of them survived encounters with deadly traps. If you don’t have the trapfinding class ability, this spell grants you the trapfinding ability of a rogue of half your character level. If you have the trapfinding ability granted by class levels, however, this spell grants you a +5 competence bonus on all Disable Device checks made to disarm mechanical (but not magical) traps. While under the effects of Aram Zey’s focus, whenever you trigger a trap by rolling poorly on a Disable Device check, you may roll a second Disable Device check. This new roll uses the same modifiers as the first roll. If your second roll is high enough to avoid accidentally springing the trap, you avoid setting it off, but still fail to disarm it. Each time you take advantage of this feature, the remaining duration of the spell is reduced by 1 minute—if less than a minute’s worth of duration remains, the spell ends as soon as you reroll your Disable Device check.
Pathfinder Training (Trapfinding):
A Pathfinder field agent receives additional training that aids her in her fulfilling her duty to explore, report, and cooperate. She can’t receive the same training more than once unless otherwise noted. A Pathfinder field agent gains additional Pathfinder training at 3rd level and every 3 levels thereafter.
Trapfinding: This training functions as the rogue class feature of the same name. Levels in Pathfinder field agent stack with levels from other classes that grant this ability for the purpose of determining a Pathfinder field agent’s total trapfinding bonus.
At 1st level and every 3 levels thereafter, a Pathfinder field agent can add an additional ability to her wayfinder. These abilities must be added to a standard wayfinder (see Pathfinder Campaign Setting: The Inner Sea World Guide 299), not to a variant or modified wayfinder (though a Pathfinder field agent can possess more than one wayfinder at a time, if she chooses). If a Pathfinder field agent loses her upgraded wayfinder, she can purchase a new one at the normal cost plus 100 gp for each Pathfinder field agent level she possesses, keeping all previously selected upgrades. A Pathfinder field agent can choose from the listed wayfinder upgrades. Any upgrades that grant additional spell effects use the wayfinder’s caster level or the Pathfinder field agent’s class level (whichever is higher) to determine effects that depend on caster level.
Message: In addition to the light spell-like ability, the wayfinder can be used to cast message at will.
