Bot Me! Kali:

In combat, Kali will rush up to the enemy if possible in the surprise round and attack. She attempts to grab the enemy with every attack and if successful, tries to bite their head off. She generally is using the Bear (+4 Con) and Bull (+4 Str) animal aspects at all times which are already factored into her stats. Her attacks are natural which makes it hard for her to do any damage, she likes to be buffed with Greater Magic Fang and Strong Jaw. She has combat reflexes and will take up to 4 attacks of opportunity per round with her 10' reach.

If she acts in the surprise round, she can act as if she has a full round action (see Sudden Strike).

Special case, if she can surprise an enemy within her Lunge range (20') she wil attempt a full round Lunge attack (+4 to attack) and grab to try to bring the enemy adjacent to her for eating.

Out of combat, Kali is very still and attempts to be stealthy all the time while keeping a lookout for threats. If anything attacks her master, she will defend him. She is always on the lookout for food and will capture any prey that gets close enough.
