Increase Move Speed by 20 ft.: One round, swift action
+4 to AC: One round; swift action
Unarmed Strikes count as Magic, Cold Iron and Silver
Pursuit of Knowledge: Add 3 (½ class level) on all Knowledge checks and can make Knowledge skill checks untrained.
Sweeping Smite: As a standard action, make a single unarmed strike while using his smite evil or smite chaos ability. If the attack hits, he can make another attack at the same bonus against an evil or chaotic creature adjacent to the first and also within reach. He gains the benefits of smite chaos or smite evil(whichever he was already using), except for additional damage for the first attack, against that creature until the beginning of his next turn. This does not require an additional daily use of smite evil or smite chaos.
At 6th level, a Champion of Irori can use this ability to attack any number of opponents, as long as each is within his threatened area and adjacent to the previous target. This ability functions similarly to the Cleave and Great Cleave feats, but does not stack with them and does not result in an AC penalty.
Valiant Stand: Gain a sacred bonus on attack rolls and to AC equal to 1/2 his class level when adjacent to more than one opponent. He does not gain this bonus if he is also adjacent to an ally.
Shield the Weak (Su): At 5th level, as an immediate action once per round, a Champion of Irori can shield a number of adjacent allies equal to his Wisdom modifier from a burst, cone, line, or spread effect that allows a Reflex saving throw and which he and his allies are all affected by. The Champion of Irori must forgo his own saving throw, but adjacent allies gain improved cover against the effect, providing a +4 bonus on Reflex saves and improved evasion against the effect.
Skill Mastery: At 6th level, a Champion of Irori becomes well practiced in a certain number of his skills. This ability functions exactly like the skill mastery advanced rogue talent. The rogue becomes so confident in the use of certain skills that she can use them reliably even under adverse conditions. Upon gaining this ability, she selects a number of skills equal to 3 + her Intelligence modifier. When making a skill check with one of these skills, she may take 10 even if stress and distractions would normally prevent her from doing so. (Acrobatics; Diplomacy; Use Magic Device)
Perfect Opening (Ex): At 7th level, once per round a champion of Irori can make an attack of opportunity against an enemy he threatens when that enemy confirms a critical hit against the champion or an ally. The champion of Irori can make this attack of opportunity even if he would be killed or incapacitated by the critical hit, resolving the attack after the critical hit deals damage but before he falls unconscious or dies. If the champion of Irori’s attack of opportunity hits, it is automatically a critical threat.

Society Profile of Recruit - Venture Captain Karu, Commander of the Bold Striders

History: An angelkin aasimar from Minkai. Relatively unremarkable upbringing. At the age of 67, Karu joined up with the Merchant’s Guild as a caravan bodyguard. Frequently deployed to Absalom, Karu spent most of his time in transit, utilizing his training with the nodachi to defend the caravans.

Around the age of 93, he sired a daughter who remained in Minkai to train at a local monastery. This daughter is Karina, a lieutenant in the Bold Strider company.

At the age of 157, Karu was travelling through the Verduran Forest, specifically Belhaim, when his caravan leader was arrested by the local authorities. Due to this coincidence, he was in Belhaim during the attack of Aeteperaxx the Second. Utilizing the weapons of the deceased Tula Belhaim, leader of the now-defunct Slayers of Nazilli, Karu was part of a four man squad that severely injured Aeteperaxx and caused him to flee the region.

While investigating the surrounding region, Karu found an ancient monastery of Irori. It was in this monastery that Karu claims to have been visited by Irori, which led to his training towards becoming a Champion of Irori. His nodachi, no longer needed, was presented to Karina upon her promotion to lieutenant. This monastery is now the headquarters of the Bold Striders, however most of the members of the dragon-hunting company reside at the Flaxseed Lodge in Cassomir.

At the age of 163, Karu was promoted to Venture Captain after he successfully stopped the attacks of Ex-Venture Captain Adril Hestram which halted his coup-d’etat.

Personality: Karu is brash and bold. He has little regard for subtlety and frequently speaks his mind on a matter regardless of circumstance. Generally light-hearted, the man is hard to anger. As a devout follower of Irori, the man prides himself on the truth, but also feels the need to test himself against strong opponents. While on a mission in Nagajor, he challenged an ogre mage oni monk to a duel.

Tactics: Karu’s primary tactic is embodied by the name Bold Strider. He will recklessly charge into danger to deal with any threat presented before him. Due to his high mental and physical fortitude as well as the magically enhanced dragonscale armor and shield, Karu is nigh-untouchable by spell and blade alike. He has few options for ranged attacks, but will frequently make use of magical enhancements in order to reach far off targets.
